Decorate To Celebrate Challenge #67 - Valentine Treat Bags

Can you believe that we are already prep'ing for Valentine's Day?  I can't, so I sure am glad that we have a challenge going on over at Decorate to Celebrate to help us get going!!!  Yep, that's right! We want to see all those amazing ways you like to put treat bags together for this "LOVE"LY holiday!  

One of my most favorite ways to put treat bags together is with some Hershey's Nugget Chocolates.  My first and foremost love in crafting is PAPER!!! and I LOVE to find fun, cute, fabulous paper and show it off! And this is the perfect way to do it.  Wrap those chocolates around with your favorite paper by cutting strips that are 1" x 3".  Use some good, strong adhesive and apply it on each end of the strip - wrap it around evenly, and WhaLa!  SO CUTE!!!  You can use any size cello bag you want, mine is, 3 1/2" x 6".  My topper is made by folding over a piece of 4" x 4" cardstock and stapling it to the bag.  Then just decorate that with more cute paper.  My heart image is cut from Cricut's Create A Critter 2 cartridge and my sentiment is from CardzTV "Happy Days" stamp set.  I used foam tape to pop the image and sentiment flag up off the topper.  SO EASY!!! I am planning on having my son give this to his preschool teacher next month, while I think of something else for the kids in his class :) 

Be sure to check out the other awesome treat bag ideas from my DT sisters over at Decorate to Celebrate - I'm sure there is something to get you inspired - and moving - before this holiday gets here :)
