{Valentine's Day} Muslin Treat Bags

Friday, February 10, 2012

Oh hi -- here we are with yet another Valentine craft! I swear I'm not obsessed with Valentine's Day! In fact, other than a few treats, the kid's school party is the extent of it for us. Mr. Sugarplum and I don't even exchange swank gifts or have a big blowout date. I just like an excuse to create little crafts. And truthfully, 30 minute projects are a lot more appealing than some of the bigger beasts awaiting my attention (i.e. sanding and staining the Living Room secretary!). So even though it's been all Valentines all the time, this is the last one.

I had these muslin bags laying around from our Advent Calendar, so I decided to decorate a few for the latest holiday.

Just be sure to insert a piece of cardboard before stamping so the ink doesn't bleed through the other side of the bag.

I wanted a bit more razzle-dazzle, so I accented the stamps using glue and microbeads. I have no idea why I had these in my craft stash, or for what Martha suggests we use them!

But they're pink and cute, and give the bags some texture.

I used the stamps I had on hand and created just a few bags to give my family for Valentine's Day. Truthfully, I just wanted an excuse to buy cinnamon gummies.

I pulled the drawstring out of the bag and closed them with satin ribbon. Hopefully that keeps me out of them until next Tuesday!

Have a sweet weekend, lovebugs! And if you're looking for sweet things to whip up this weekend, check out the Valentine's Day Gallery. Even though having an entire gallery of projects completely negates my claims of not being Valentine obsessed. Whatever.

Pin It!

  15. You always do the cutest things. I would of never come up with all the details from the muslin bag to the stamp - and even beads in your stamps. They are very clever and I know the receiver will be thrilled to pieces!
