Valentine Pencil Treat Bags

Are you getting ready for Valentine's Day?  I am!  I have been crazy busy getting my Etsy shopped loaded up with lots of Valentine's goodies. Here is one of the items that I recently made for the shop.  They are Valentine pencil treat bags. Won't these be great for kids to give out at school?  

I saw the Valentine pencils in the Target $1 bin and immediately knew they were a perfect fit for Stampin' Up's! 1" x 8" cello bags.  The colors are also an excellent match to some of Stampin' Up!'s colors.  So guess what...I cleaned off the shelf. 

These were really easy to make.


  1. Cut a piece of card stock 1 3/4 x 3 1/2" 
  2. Score at 1 3/4" (so that when folded it measures 1 3/4 x 1 3/4)
  3. Inserted a pencil into the bag and sealed it.
  4. Fold and staple the scored card stock over the top of the bag. 
  5. Punch out a coordinating scallop square and heart and attached them to cover the staple. 

That's it! See, super easy!
