Hi everyone, A Night Owl Blog contributor Jen here again! Did you catch my earlier post in the 14 day’s of Valentine’s Day series where I shared my Dark Chocolate and Bacon Cupcakes? If not, you should check them out, they’re sure to please the man in your life! Today, I’m going to share with you a fun Valentine’s day treat bag with washi tape and straws!  These bags would be great to use for your children’s lunch on Valentine’s Day or to send a whole bunch with treats for the class party!

What you’ll need:

  • lunch bag/kraft bag
  • straw
  • washi tape
  • scissors
  • hole punch

And the steps:

  • Start by folding the flap forward and hole-punching two holes towards the center of the bag. (I used scissors because I couldn’t find my hole punch and trimmed the edges of the holes for a finished look)
  • Open the bag, add your treats and then re-close your bag.
  • Take your straw and starting from the back of the bag lace your straw so the ends of the straw are on the front.
  • Trim the edges of the straw so they aren’t longer then your bag’s length.
  • Next cut a length of washi tape in half length-wise, add to one end of the straw spaced out.
  • For the arrow portion, use two pieces of washi that are the same length and overlap them a bit to make a square of tape. Next, cut each side at an angle to make an arrow point and add to the other side of the straw.
  • And waaah laaah, you have a cute lunch sack that looks like it’s been shot through the heart, hehe!
I was really enjoying the simple look but thought it would be fun to add a Cool Kids Valentine’s Day card because they’re so darn cute!
You could even have the children draw on the bags before assembling and address then to their class mates for a personalized touch! I hope you enjoyed this simple yet fun washi tape arrow Valentine’s fun!
