I recently bought 9000 feet of kraft paper. It’s kind of like the duct tape of crafting supplies (it’s a craft project! it’s a drop cloth! it’s both!). We like to give the kids small gifts and treats on Valentine’s Day so this year I decided to make them sewn paper hearts with sweets inside.
- Kraft paper
- note cards
- sewing machine or hot glue gun
Its a pretty self explanatory project. I cut out some large hearts and then started sewing. My first attempt didn’t go so well since I didn’t leave a big enough opening to fit the candy in. I also found that the chocolates were way easier to sew around then the hard tic tac boxes so next time I do this, I will be sticking with small candy or treats. Once the candy is in, just finish sewing shut.
I then dolled them up with some glitter glue and ribbon that I used to hand them from the chandelier over our table.
