B and I had a fun time creating these Heartbreaker Treat Pouches. They make a cute Valentine’s Day gift, and B was able to practise his fine motor skills by weaving ribbon through the holes of the heart pouches.

Materials:

  • craft paper
  • scissors
  • single hole punch
  • ribbon
  • treats to fill your heart pouch: tattoos, stickers, candies

Valentine’s Day Heartbreaker Treat Pouches:

Start by folding a square sheet of craft paper in half, and then again, to create a small square.
