Valentine Candy Pouches

Today is another Craft Junkie Too Design Team day. I can't even begin to tell you how much I love being on Tracy's Design Team!! Her awesome assignments are just a small part of it. 

 The challenge for this week is:
Valentine Treats 
Make a project that can be easily mass produced for classroom goodies.

My seven year old, Owen, loves to have his picture on the goodies he brings to school. So this is the adorable project we came up with for this years Valentine treats.

This treat pouch is from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cut at 7 1/2" using red generic cardstock. I scored the lines and together we folded and sealed the pouch with Scor-Tape.

Some white gel pen stitches are easy enough for my seven year old (although his are not consistent in size like mine are) to help with.

Although this little treat pouch could hold much more candy, Owen wanted Tootsie Roll Pops. To keep them from sliding out, I added a little hot glue to the end of the sucker stick and behind the head of the candy.

We picked out a picture and sized it to fit our pouch (our finished pic measures 2 1/2" x 2") and we printed them out. Four pictures fit onto one 4" x 6" sheet of photo paper. The adorable font is called "Cheri"... I love that is has hearts for the accents. You can download it for free at

We made little "to:" and "from:" tags for the back too. We used the same font as the sentiment on the front. I left the "to:" section blank so Owen can hand-write the rest.

That's it, please head over to Tracy's blog and see what
