DIY Cookie Pouch Valentine for your Valentines


Valentines Day is just around the corner and it's this time of the year I find it easiest to DIY. It must be because I love anything that is glittery and pink! Adding glitter to something is one of the easiest ways to spruce it up!

Today I want to show you how to make a simple "cookie pouch" to fill with homemade goodness and gift to your bestie (or to all your besties!) on this wonderful day of love! It's actually a great favor idea too (I love how it looks at a table setting!)

You need:

Cut out a template first to use for cutting out your pouch (so you don't have pencil marks) 
My paper is 12 X 12 scrapbook size paper usually sold in all craft stores.
Put two holes in each corner. One at tip and second an inch or so beneath it.

please excuse my wrinkles!!! Using the newborn card? ;)

Put in your filling of choice. I used our Russian Oreshki Cookies! Overlap two flaps so that the holes line up and pull the twine through. Tie. 

Starting with one remaining flap at a time, thread the two strings through the two holes.(#1) 
Do the same thing with the other flap (#2)
Tie once and attach corny Valentine inspired label (Optional) :)

Tie a bow. 
Give out to your loved ones to remind them that you love them :)

I'd be happy to answer questions if something didn't make sense..

Check back to see how I used it in a Valentines Day inspired party! Thanks for reading- XOXO

If you are in the local central Virgina area, we will be making these pouches with cookies available for purchase for your Valentine's! Email me with questions or orders!
