- Kraft paper bags
- Hole punch
- Washi tape
- Classroom valentines
- A custom stamp
- Candy or treats
For this project, we used the You’re a Gem Classroom Valentines and the You’re a Gem Gift Tag Stamp.
Start with a paper bag. Fold and crease it to create a flap. Depending on how many treats you plan to put inside, you may want a bigger or smaller flap.
Center your stamp on the flap and press firmly to get a clear impression.
Fill your bag with goodies – cards, candy, stickers, or other small treats. If you are using our classroom valentines, you may or may not want to put them in the included envelopes.
Next, measure and cut a piece of washi tape to fit the width of the bag and use it to seal the flap.
Use a hole punch to make two small holes at the near the crease at the center of the flap. Measure and cut a piece of ribbon. Make sure you have enough length to tie a bow.
Thread the ribbon through the holes and tie a bow. In addition to being pretty, this will help to keep the bag closed.
Repeat this process for additional Valentine’s Day treat bags. Show us what you make by using the hashtag #expressionery on Instagram!
