I absolutely love this holiday. Perhaps it’s the pinks, reds, and teals that grace nearly everything. Or perhaps it’s the chance to go all crafty. Either way, I thought I’d share a few of my ideas with you this year!

Scripture Valentines Bag Toppers:
I’ve created 3 different bag toppers for hearts. Use one, use them all! You can fill them with anything you’d like really, but I’m rather fond of things in heart shapes and those are easy to find this time of the year! Just browse your favorite store for ideas. I used Dove chocolates, conversation hearts, and heart jellybeans that I found at Target.
When you cut that toppers, it’s best to use a paper cutter if you can. It creates a clean, crisp cut. This might seem a little silly, but I promise it’s worth the time to get that paper cutter out. Plus it really can be a little faster than scissors anyway.
The toppers that I created (pictured above) are all on 4 inch wide party bags. You can get them at Walmart or craft stores. Look in the cake decorating aisle. Or order them from Amazon to get them the cheapest.
They are made in various heights, but that doesn’t really matter. You can always fold them down like I’ve shown below. Before placing the topper on, I always staple the bag together. This keeps the bag straight.
S’mores Valentine Bag Topper—>
I have seen a few s’mores kits floating around for Valentines and I love this idea. These are NOT the same size bags as the ones that I listed above. You need 5″ bags to fit the yummy goodies into this valentine. (Honestly, you could use a zip top sandwich bag, but be aware that the edges will hang out a bit.) In each bag, I put 4 graham crackers (halved), 2 mini chocolate bars, and 4 pink marshmallows. Feeling fancy? Try heart shaped marshmallows.
Bubble Scripture Valentine—>
I have to admit that this one might be my favorite. You can get a 24 count bag of bubbles at Target for $3.00. That might be the cheapest Valentine ever. Simply print out the cards, write your name on the bag and tie with a little curling ribbon. I buy white curling ribbon in bulk as it comes in handy for nearly every crafty venture.
Last but not least is another non-candy option. (Trust me, there are moms around the world thanking you right now for picking this one.) I found Valentine pencils in the dollar bins at Target and there were some at Walmart as well. Simply cut a small slit at the top and bottom of the Valentine and slip the pencil in. For the girls, I added a little but of curling ribbon. Of course, you can skip that part if desired. To personalize TO/FROM could be written on the bottom or the back.
