Heart Treats

Here is a goodie bag heart, inspired by Family Fun Magazine. A few years ago my daughter and I made a variation of this craft for my granddaughter’s classmates. Instead of having the pink or red cardstock on the back, though, we had clear plastic on the front and the back.
This craft needs a see through plastic as a top layer and some kind of cardstock, pink, white or red – well, any color you want – as a backing. We cut the plastic with pinking shears so it made a nice little zigzag around the edge. We started by making a heart pattern for the backings and used it to cut out hearts from colored cardstock. We made a smaller heart pattern for the inside/plastic heart and cut out pink and clear hearts.
Here is the pink plastic we used. The clear plastic didn’t show up in the pictures.
We held them together and punched holes like this.
And ended up with this:
Then we started lacing the two together like this:
Stuff with candy before completely lacing up the two hearts and tie a bow at the top. DONE!
And you end up with this. We’re making about 50 or so.
Best wishes everyone!!
