Looking for a new alternative to plain paper Valentines? These cute little heart pouches are perfect for hiding some sweet treats!
- Cute paper – either scrapbook paper, or make your own with DIY foam stamps
- A sewing machine or needle and thread
- Little candies
Start by cutting out two hearts that are identical in shape. Place them together with the patterned sides out.
Using a sewing machine or needle and thread, stitch around the heart shape about a quarter-inch in from the edge. Leave a gap about an inch long on one of the sides like shown above.
Put the candy inside the heart, and stitch up the gap, sealing the candy inside the heart!
Trim the threads, and you’re done! You can also write a message on the heart before filling it, or glue on some lace and beads if you’d like.
To get the candy out, just tear the heart open! You can also fill these with coins, squinkies, or small jewelry for a special surprise!
