Treat Holders, Valentine’s Day

Valentine Treats

So what do you do when you do when you have leftover supplies that you were going to use to make cards….but then realized that you really don’t need any more cards?  Well you take the pieces and repurpose them into Valentine Treat Holders!

Beacause you know everyone needs a little chocolate for Valentine’s Day.  But I also included some of these little conversation hearts.  These aren’t the original candies this year….Necco, the candy company that made the original conversation hearts went out of business last year and the candy company that bought them out, didn’t produce the hearts this year.  So I had to settle for “fake” candy.

Silly candy company….those little hearts have been the #1 selling Valentine candy for the past 2 years!…..surpassing even Valentine chocolates!  But rest assured, the hearts will be back in 2020!

This was a really simple treat holder that I found online.  Several people have posted the design, so not sure who to really credit for the idea.  The holder is really 2 pieces…one piece that is the outside and the other piece is made into a little box (no lid!) that is attached to the inside of the folded outside piece.  That little box is the perfect holder for a cellophane bag filled with treats and a little bit of crinkled paper bits to make it look fancy.

The long front/back piece measures 3 1/4” x 11” and is scored at 4 3/4” and 6 1/4”.  The piece that makes the box is 5” x 3 3/8” and is scored at 1” on all four side.  The pictures below show how to cut the sides to make the box as well as where to put your tear ‘n tape (the outside of the box is face up) to put it together and attach to the front piece.

I used this punch, which is part of the Tutti Frutti Punch set that is currently in the Clearance Rack.  It’s meant to punch a watermelon, but it make the perfect little half circle to thread a little ribbon through to hold everything together.

You can decorate the outside to make small table favors to fit any occasion and then fill up the treat bag with coordinating items.  I’m thinking baby shower, bridal shower, birthday favors, etc.  But before you go off to make your own…here’s a close-up of each of the treat holders.

If you’d like to make this treat holder for your next special occasion, this is what you’ll need to make the holder.  Decorate using stamps and colors that coordinate for your event.

  • Cardstock – two pieces of same color: Cut first piece 3 1/4” x 11”; score at 4 3/4” and 6 1/4” on the long side.   Cut second piece 5” x 3 3/8” – score at 1” on all four sides.  See the pictures above for cutting and assembly.
  • Front of treat holder: Designer Series Paper (your choice) – Cut 3” x 4 1/2”.
  • Ribbon – approximately 14” – trim off any excess
  • 3” x 6” Gussetted Cellophane Bags
  • Tear ‘n Tape

Hope everyone has a Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Stamping!
