Easy Valentine’s Day Craft – Sewn Candy Pouches | Parents


We all know that Valentine’s Day is about
2 things, love and candy. Here’s a craft that showcases both. For this project, you’ll need
pre- cut scallop cards from papersource. com, about 4 by 5 inches, scissors, thin ribbon,
a hole punch, small candies and clear plastic baggies. Take 2 of the cards and stack them
on top of one another. And using the scallops as a guide, punch evenly- spaced holes around
the outer edge of the cards with the hole punch. Take the card that will be the top
of the package and fold it in half. Cut a half heart at the fold like this. Then, unfold
it and place it back on top of the other card. You’ll need about 1 yard of ribbon per packet.
Weave the ribbon through the hole starting at the center top going in the front and weaving
around the back just like you’re sewing. You wanna leave a tail at least 5 inches long
so you can tie a bow at the end. Stitch around the card until you reach the last hole on
the bottom corner and pause. Grab your clear plastic bag. You can fill them with conversation
hearts then tuck your bag of candies in between the 2 cards so the candies are visible through
the cutout heart. Finish sewing until you reach the hole where you started. And then,
bring the ribbon back through the first hole like this. Tie your 2 ends into a bow and
trim the ends if you need to. There’s no doubt that your kids will have a blast making this
candy pouches for Valentine’s Day.

  1. I do something similar for my kids every year out the pouches are that foam paper (or whater it is lol) and the whole thing is a heart. We make it bigger so n stuff each one with stickers tattoos fruit snacks the mini bags of chips a mini juice box n a couple of mini candies the kids n the school love it n look forward to it every year … and I enjoy making them. When their snacks are fine they have a little pouch for all their cards …what do u guys think of that would love some feedback/ideas/thoughts or comments.
