I've had this picture pinned on one of my Pinterest boards forever. I used it as inspiration for my own little treat bags. Since the bags I chose were really tiny I decided to skip the stamped tags and stamp the bags instead. Here are the materials that I used for this simple little project:
- small brown paper bags (Michaels)
- pink & white baker's twine (Michaels)
- scalloped edge craft punch (Michaels)
- heart stamp (Michaels)
- white ink (Michaels)
- hole punch
First, I used the craft punch on the top edge of each bag. Next, I folded the tops of the bags over. I used the hole punch to pop a little hole in the top. With the top of the bag folded over and the bag still flat I stamped some hearts in a little pattern all over the front. Lastly, I filled the bags up with treats and tied them up with baker's twine. Easy as pie.
So now for the important part - the treats inside. I've never made my own peanut butter balls so I decided to give them a try. First I looked for a recipe with a crispy version (a local bakery makes a crispy-in-the-middle-version that I love, love, love).
At first I was skeptical because the "balls" looked more like "lumpy blobs".
But, once I added a little bit of drizzle over top, and taste-tested a few, I decided they were good enough to give away after all.
I had to be a bit of a peanut butter ball scrooge because only two of them would fit in each tiny bag. Whoopsie.
Now all Coops and I need to do is drive around town on Friday to make some deliveries!
Happy Valentine's Day, my friends! You know you're cute, right?
