Valentine’s Day Burlap Treat Bags
This year I am hosting my first “Galentine’s” Day party with some of my closet friends and I wanted to make a little something they could take home with them after our party. These Valentine’s Day Burlap treat bags are just the perfect craft to make for friends and would even make a cute classroom gift for smaller classrooms.
Supplies needed for Valentine’s Day Burlap Treat Bags
You only need a few simple supplies for these cute treat bags. You can make them with or without fabric depending on what you have or what style you are looking for. I decided to do a few bags with a polka dot fabric heart for a slightly different look and texture. The rest I used all vinyl. This post contains affiliate links.
- Cricut Maker
- FabricGrip Mat
- Fabric, of your choice
- Burlap Treat Bags
- Iron-on Vinyl, I used Everyday and Glitter
- Design Space File
If you decide to make some of your treat bags with a fabric heart you will need to use the star of the show, the Rotary blade. The rotary blade is a sharp blade that cuts beautiful designs and of course simple shapes out of soft fabrics for sewing projects or crafts involving fabric.
Do I need to apply fusible interfacing to the fabric before cutting?
For this project I didn’t adhere any fusible interfacing to the fabric before cutting. I used fabric glue, such as Liquid Stitch to attach the heart to the burlap bag because I knew this bag won’t get heavy use. If you would like extra strength you can iron on thin fusible interfacing, I personally love the Lite Weight Heat N Bond, to the fabric. Make sure to follow the interfacing instructions, and continue to cut the fabric.
How to make Valentine’s Day Burlap Treat Bags
- Begin by cutting out your various pieces using the Design Space File. I cut the larger heart out of fabric and the small heart and the personalized name out of iron-on vinyl. Feel free to switch around what you use to customize it to your liking. I love the fabric look and personalized name but I equally love the all vinyl versions as well! That glitter iron-on vinyl is just my favorite! 🙂
- Press your Iron-on pieces to the burlap bag with an EasyPress or Hot iron, following the directions for the specific iron-on vinyl you are using.
- Slowly peel off your plastic sheeting when ready.
What do I put in my Valentine’s Day Burlap Treat Bags?
There are so many things you can put inside these cute treat bags but I would make sure whatever you put inside, food wise, is wrapped.
Here are some fun ideas to feel your treat bags with:
- chocolate hearts
- favorite wrapped candy
- mini hand sanitizers
- nail polish
- stickers (kids)
- mini bubbles (kids)
- gift cards
