This little Valentine treat started with my attempt to find these (affiliate link) skinny cellophane bags to stack up M&M's candies.
Of course I couldn't find them anywhere, except online...
where I would have to pay more for shipping than for the bags.
So I settled on these pretzel bags.
I filled them up with candy, but they didn't look the way I wanted...
I sewed them!
Yep. I ran the bags right through my machine to get the size I wanted.
Pretty simple to sew through the plastic.
Just make sure your opening is wide enough to fit the candy through.
I stacked up the candies and trimmed up the sides.
Cute...however, these little candy stacks got me thinking...
What if I used all 3 compartments and didn't cut them apart?
Candies stacked in one compartment,
a valentine greeting in the middle compartment
and a peppermint stick in the last compartment.
Tied up with ribbon, of course!
In some, I put some 'love' scriptures to hand out to my small group ladies at church.
It's a 3-in one treat!
And just when I thought I was done, I had to try...
Oooooh, the possibilities!
Valentine's Day is almost here!
