Valentine Treat Mini Envelope Pouch

If you're looking for a simple, quick treat to make for Valentine's Day, this one is great. Inside is one Kit Kat snack bar and one Hershey snack bar (both are the .49 oz size):


Cute, huh? You can even tuck your business card in there behind the chocolate, to make a memorable impression! What I like about this project is that it uses very few supplies, NO adhesive, and you can actually cut the supplies down even further and go bare bones with it. You can make it with just the Mini Envelopes, I {Heart} Hearts stamp set, and a Real Red ink pad. Of course, you could kick this up a notch, too, and really doll it up if you want. I'm thinking along these lines: Very Vanilla envelopes, Antique Brads and Trinkets, Crochet Trim, Medium Jewelry Tag Punch, Tiny Tags stamp set, and some Linen Thread. (Maybe I'll post one of those tomorrow!)

INSTRUCTIONS: All you have to do is seal a Whisper White Square Mini Envelope, and turn it over and decorate the front. Then, punch the top off with the Scallop Border Punch, and sponge it. (or just trim one end off if you don't have the punch) Tuck the candy bars in, wrap a ribbon around and tie it in a knot, and highlight the knot with a rhinestone. My only TIP is that the "bag" has a nicer top if you make sure and orient the sealed flap to the bottom of the back of the bag, as you can see in the picture below.


Stampin' Supplies: Whisper White Square Mini Envelopes, I {Love} Love Jumbo Wheel & Handle, Pink Pirouette ink pad (to ink up wheel), I {Heart} Hearts stamp set, Real Red ink pad, Real Red 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Rhinestone Jewel, Scallop Border Punch, Stampin' Sponge.

What a cute bag and a great tip about where to put the sealed flap! I have seen the "flappin' in the breeze" look and it just doesn't work as cute! ;-)

Great idea for an easy M&T. TFS
