Valentine’s Day Treat Pouches (with Free Cutting Files)Valentine’s Day Treat Pouches (with Free Cutting Files)

Hello guys! 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 treat 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.

Valentine’s Day Treat Pouches with Free Cutting Files DIY Tutorial

They came out so cute but I gotta confess it took me some time to make them right LOL. I screw 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 on 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 more detailed tutorial. And I’ll explain a little bit of what I did here.

You will need:

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

Fist I cut my shapes and prepared the table where I was going to work. I cut the shapes about 6 inches the longest side.

I added hot glue around the edges of the back part of the pouches and quickly placed the zip lock bag to stick it. Then put some treats inside the bag and centered on the cutout shape. Then I placed 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.

 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 I slowly cut the leftover plastic following closely the scalloped shape of the pouches. Sadly some parts of the plastic are visible but I could cut most of it.

Then I made the rest of the pouches =D. How cute! Is not perfect but I love them!

Here you go, cute and so inspired Valentine’s Day treat Pouches!

What do you think??? Would you try to make these too??? I would love to know all about it!

    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.

    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.
