Party DIY::Valentines Candy Pouches Part 2

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

heart shaped candy pouch

On Monday, I wrote about Valentine's candy pouches and today, I was inspired to make more candy pouches, but this time, it's a heart-shaped pouch.  This one is even easier to make than Monday's cone-shaped pouch so I thought I would share it with you.  

To make this one, I simply cut out two hearts from scrapbook paper and used double-stick tape to put them together.  I left the top of the heart open and filled it with candy.  Then I used double-stick tape again to seal the top part closed.  I punched a hole and used it to attach the twine and printable tag (which you can download for free here).  And that's it! 

You can use any shape to make these pouches.  An egg-shaped one would be great for Easter or a square-shaped one would be great for a birthday party. Decorate them with ribbon or our printable tags to make them extra special!

diy valentines candy pouch
Hello everybody! I know it's been a while since I last posted, but I've been working on some new things and hope to be able to share them with you soon.  In the meantime, I've put together a little tutorial that is just in time for Valentine's day or your next party.  These favor pouches are really easy to make and take only a few minutes. They would be great for the kids to give to give to their friends and they can even help you make them.  Here we go!
These are the supplies that I used:

scrapbook paper (I cut mine to 15 cm x 15 cm)
glue lines (regular glue, double sided tape, or staples should also work. You can even sew these closed!)
hole puncher
twine
printable tag (you can download them for free below)
Optional: decorative edge scissors

Turn your piece of scrapbook paper over and add your glue about 2 cm in from one of the edges. It's hard to see the glue, so hopefully the arrow helps ;-).

Then, turn your piece of paper over and place a line of glue perpendicular to the glue line you added in the previous step.

Next, roll up your piece of paper and seal it by using the glue line you just added.

Then, press the side closed which has the glue that you added in step 1. 

Cut the edge using decorative edge scissors if you have them.

Add your candy to the pouch.

Press the open side closed in the opposite direction that you sealed the other end so that it looks like the picture above. Punch two holes at the top.

Thread the twine through the holes, add the printable tag, cut the edge with your decorative scissors and you are done!

See, it was easy peasy!  These would also be great for a wedding favor or at a kids party.  You could, depending on what size you make them, fill them with little toys or stickers.

Enjoy making them and giving them to your friends for Valentine's Day!
