I don’t go all out decorating for Valentine’s Day. My full-time job keeps me pretty busy this time of year. (Update: I’m blogging full time now!) Last year I did make a paper medallion wreath and a scrapbook paper banner, but this year I made these cute little Valentine Burlap Treat Bags.
The burlap bags are from Pick Your Plum that I’ve had for quite awhile. I believe you can also find them here. These bags were gathered at the top with twine. I simply removed the twine and replaced it with pink organza ribbon that I had in my over-abundant ribbon stash. I wasn’t sure how the soft pink would look with the rustic and nubby texture of the burlap bags, but I love the look.
The fabric hearts were cut with Silhouette Cameo using Silhouette’s clean cut fabric interfacing. I love that I can cut fabric with my Cameo and just iron the shapes onto my project.
UPDATE: Now that I own a Cricut Maker, it’s not necessary to add interfacing to fabric to cut it!
I found the sweet pink and white fabric at JoAnn’s.
Once the hearts were ironed onto the bags, I filled them with candy and placed the bags in a pretty footed bowl that I found at HomeGoods.
Now I have a pretty display of Valentine chocolates when friends and family stop by (that is if Dan doesn’t eat them all!)
What about you? Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day?
