Valentine Treat Bags

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I could write a blog about romantic get-aways or Singles Only celebrations.  BUT I had this super fun idea come to mind for a family-friendly craft project and I just HAD to share it!  Hopefully you find these treat bags as cute and easy to make as I intended them to be.

[Owl Always Love You!]

Cut two circles from white paper to make eyes.  Color pupils in the eyes.

Cut two larger circles from another color of paper (I used black).  TIP: fold the paper before cutting to get two same size circles.

Tape or glue the white circles to the color circles, then tape of glue them to the lunch bag.

Let your kids be creative with this project!  Use any colors you want.  Think of different animals to create.  Make it your own!  My only wish is that this craft project makes your Valentine’s Day special, fun, and easy to do.
