Making Valentine Treats Special!

I love Valentine's Day treats!  But most of the commercial packaging, while descriptive, doesn't rock my world.  So take a few minutes and dress up your treats for your favorite Valentine with cute patterned paper and embellishments.  These can be super simple or a little more involved.  But they are so much fun to make!

These papers are from last year's We R Memory Keepers "Heart Attack" line.  I just read from Stacy Julian's Facebook page that Pantone has announced that Turquoise is the "in" color this year.  I guess that WRMK was ahead of their time since they definitely use strategically place turq in this line!  Love that turq!

The instructions are really easy: measure the dimension around the box, add about 1/2" and then cut a strip the height of the box.  Wrap around the box, secure with a sturdy tape (red line) and then embellish.  You can do this with any paper line!  Too cute!

    Hi Helen!!
    These are so cute and great ideas (especially for teachers) Are those regular cellophane bags or something else?
