How to Use Paper Tags on your Valentine Treat Bags

If you are like me, Valentine's day sneaks up pretty quickly and my kids change their minds often about what type of treat they want to share with their classmates.  So, I'm always in a scramble at the last minute to be creative and stay on a budget!

Even if the school your child attends doesn't allow Valentine treats (BOO!), you can still whip up some cute goody bags for them to share with teachers, pals on their sports teams, Sunday School buddies, grandparents and family members, or even their day care centers!

How to make tags!  By O Happy Day!

I've designed some quick, printable 3" x 3" tags you can download, print, punch and tie on to any goody bag, cookie pack, snack can or treat!  Let your imagination soar!

But first, I wanted to show you some very SIMPLE, EASY ways creative people are using tags on their goody bags.

For any occassion, just fill a cello bag with toys, candy or other treats that go with your theme, then use curling ribbon to attach your tag:

Skip all the doo-dads and simply wrap homemade treats, like this candy apple, in a cello bag first before using fabric ribbon to tie on your tag:

Dress up some store bought, not sweet snacks to fill your bag then tie on your tag with bakers twine like this:

I love this super cute, FAST way to attach the tag to a regular paper bag with a clothespin!  You can even print your tag on sticker paper to dress up the bag:

You can also glue the tag onto the bag!  By Orange Paper Duck

Actually, you don't even NEED a bag!  Just tie the tag directly onto your box of candy or treats like this:

Or get REALLY fancy with some big toys and a fancy ribbon bow like this:

Now that you have some ideas, all you need are your tags and treats!

Here are a few of my tags that are ready to print and available in my Etsy Store.  These tags are all 3" x 3" but you could certainly use regular Valentine cards as tags, too!

Robots are perfect for Valentines for boys.  Just tie these tags to a small package of Twizzlers...

Happy Tagging!
