Sweet Nothings :: Treat Bags for your Valentine {a free printable}

I wasn’t kidding when I said I was going to share Valentine’s Day ideas all week. I really am! What is better than a little sweet nothings treat bag, am I right? Yup, right.

I love the way packaging can make something ordinary look extra-fun and super special and, as it happens, my kids love M&M’s.  So, in the spirit of this valentines making frenzy I am on, I combined those two loves and made sweet nothings packages for bags of M&M’s!  These sweet treat bags will be in our valentines wraps on Saturday morning.

I really hope my kids know how rad I am because some days…eh, hard to tell.

Just like with the Monster Valentines, I used PicMonkey to make these and it took all of 10 minutes.  I don’t even have the paid version of PicMonkey, just the free version and I love it.  (Nobody is paying me to say that, either.)  Click on any image to get the pdf for yourself. Yay for free printables (now that I know how to make and share them, I’m unstoppable)!

I designed these simple packages, printed them out, folded them and stapled them over the top of the bags of M&Ms (the red, pink and whites ones, of course).

So freaking simple!!

Here is a real quick run-down on how I made mine so you can customize your own awesome packaging for all the things!

1. Go to PicMonkey and click on the Design option.  It will open up to a blank white square that you can crop and resize to your heart’s delight (so punny!). On the left-hand sidebar are your various options, click on thsweet nothings packagingemes. It is the icon at the very bottom.

2. Choose the Sweethearts theme.  You will see all kinds of options for graphics, overlays and effects that you can place on your white square.

4.  Now you can resize the heart, and move it around by clicking on it to nestle it into the bottom.  You can also add the banner and text by clicking on the butterly and Tt icons.

Play around a little bit, exploring the features until you are happy, save the image to your computer and you can pop it into Word and print it out!  Or, just print this one and start making some awesome treat bags.
