Valentine’s Day Candy Pouches with Free Cutting Files

Today I’m sharing a cute craft that I was eager to make ever since I saw it at Keeping it Simple. Kaysi made some of these cuties for Halloween, then for Christmas and now she made the cutest Candy Pouches ever for Valentine’s Day.


I was so inspired by her creativity that I REALLY wanted to make them and give some lovely treats here at home.

They came out so cute but I gotta confess it took me some time to make them right LOL. I screwed up a few cutouts before making one pouch good enough. But once I got it the rest came out wonderfully.


The one thing I learned from this inspired craft is that I chose kind of complicated shapes. Since we have to cut all the plastic remaining, scallops don’t make it easy AT ALL. I really wanted to make these so I had a lot of patience {and stubbornness}.

I would really advise using plain and simple shapes though =P. My pouches are not as perfect as Kaysi’s but I really love them because I put a lot of love into them.

So, I’m sharing the cutting files I made for the pouches just in case you are a meticulous and patient person LOL. You can always use it as labels or anything you want, can’t you?

I pretty much follow Kaysi’s step by step that you can check it out for a more detailed tutorial. And I’ll explain a little bit what I did here.

How to make these cute V-Day Candy Pouches

You will need:

  • Zip lock bags
  • Cutouts shapes
  • Treats/candies, etc
  • Hot glue gun

Fist cut the shapes and prepare the table where you will work. Cut the shapes about 6 inches legthwise.

Apply hot glue around the edges of the back part of the pouches and quickly placed the zip-lock bag to stick to it.

Then put some candies inside the bag and center them on the cutout shape.

Place the top part of the pouch over the bag matching the shape and put the hot glue directly on the bag so when you press the cardboard down it will melt the plastic and seal the pouches.

I had to make it in small portions of the pouches so I had time to seal before melting completely and not sticking.

adjusted the candies in a plastic bag and on top of it the pattern of the pounches I was so focused on making it right that I didn’t take enough step by step photos. I’m planning on making some more and I promise I’ll make it more detailed.

Here was the annoying part LOL. With an x-acto knife, slowly cut the leftover plastic following closely edges of the shape of the pouches. Sadly in my case, some parts of the plastic are visible but I could cut most of it.

  1. Such a fun idea! These were one of my “knockouts” from last week’s Hit Me With Your Best Shot party! Thanks SO much for linking up!

  2. These are beautiful, Cami! And I know my kids would love them! Thanks so much for linking up at Hit Me with Your Best Shot! Have a wonderful week!

  3. these are just so cute. I would love a machine like yours. Fun stuff! Thank you for helping to make the Thursday Favorite Things Blog hop so much fun. Big Hugs ♥

  4. Hi Cami! These are so cute. I’m afraid they are way beyond my ability though. You should have a video tutorial to go with this project. That would be fun. Thanks for sharing this with our Let’s Get Real readers. You have inspired me to create treat bags. I wonder how they will turn out? They may not be the same as yours, but will be filled with lots of love as yours are.

  5. That is so neat! Totally ingenious. I don’t have a nifty shape cutter to make it with but I might be able to cut some pretty hearts! Thanks for linking it up to Snickerdoodle Sunday.
