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.

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. 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. You can always use it as labels or anything you want, can’t you?

How to make these cute V-Day Candy Pouches

Supplies:

  • Ziplock bags
  • Cutouts shapes or printables
  • Treats/candy of choice

Tools:

  • Cutting Machine – Silhouette or Cricut will do the work.
  • Hot glue gun
  • X-acto knife or craft knife
  • Scissors

Instructions:

1. First, cut the shapes and prepare the table where you will work.

2. Cut the shapes about 6 inches lengthwise.

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

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

5. 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 it 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.

6. Here was the annoying part LOL. With an X-acto knife, slowly cut the leftover plastic following closely the 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.

Crafting Tips & Tricks

Opt for plain and simple shapes to make the process smoother. Complicated shapes might test your patience, but hey, a little challenge never hurt anyone!

Spread the Love: When applying hot glue, make sure to spread it evenly around the edges of the back part of the pouch. This ensures a secure seal and a tidy finish.

While using an X-acto knife to cut the leftover plastic, take your time and follow the edges closely. Some parts may be visible, but with a steady hand, you can trim most of it for a clean finish.
