When I was a kid, we took homemade treats to school for Valentine's Day every year. At school we would decorate the shoe boxes or white paper sacks with pink and read hearts, glitter, glue, and anything else we could get our hands on. The on Valentine's Day everyone would bring their little store bought cards with Ninja Turtles or Carebares on the front, their name signed on the back, and a homemade treat to go with. These days...you cannot take homemade treats to school. Apparently, too many kids have too many allergies so everything has to be store bought. Here is an idea combining the homemade idea with store bought treats.
You will need:
The store bought treat of your choice
Cardstock or scrapbooking paper of your choice
Embellishments to match
Glue dots or double sided tape
Scissors (regular or shaped)
Place store bought candies into the cellophane bags. Fold the top over and staple.
Cut the cardstock or paper wide enough to cover the top and long enough to fold over. Use glue dots or double sided tape to secure cardstock to the baggie. Decorate the cardstock as desired. You can spell out the name of the receiver on front and let your little student sign or write a message on the back.
We embellished with little flowers and brads to hold in place.
Fun, adorable, "semi-homemade," and super simple.
