Valentine's Day Cookie Treat Bags
These sweet cookie treat bags are simple and customizable, but they also come together quickly, saving you precious minutes when you are burning the midnight oil putting together treats for your kid's Valentine's Day party. Been there, done that. I feel ya. Or, day I say, simple enough for the kids to help put together because they told you in advance. Just kidding. They won't do that.
(For my lip-smackin' good sugar cookie recipe, check out this post HERE.)
Mix and match kraft, white, and black to create a simple, yet stunning cookie package. Simply insert a cookie into the treat bag, fold it over, and pin a pennant and heart with a clothespin. Embellish the hearts with a tiny bow and write a sweet sentiment on the chalkboard clothespins with chalk. Done.
Aren't these chalkboard clothespins the cutest? Each circle is 1 5/8" in diameter which is big enough for even
I'm a sucker for pretty paper straws. (See what I did there?) Fold a piece of washi tape over the straw for an instant flag. Maximum impact with minimum effort. Just the way I like it.
Chalkboard Heart Banner
Now to this chalkboard heart banner you have been eyeballing for a while. I used a single chalkboard banner kit to create this lovely little ditty. Wanna see how I did it? Of course you do.
In addition to the chalkboard banner kit (pennant flags and twine), you will need a regular ol' piece of chalk and a heart stencil. I made this stencil using a heart punch, but you could just as easily make one by cutting out a heart by hand.
Start by tracing the outline of your heart onto the pennant.
Keeping the stencil in place, fill in the heart with chalk. You can use the same scribble pattern or mix it up a bit. Or add some cute chalkboard lettering spelling out your favorite Valentine's Day sentiment.
Look at that! You will have created a mini Valentine's Day party without even knowing it. Go you!
Have a Happy Valentine's Day!
