DIY: free valentine printable - you're a star!


Cute valentines don't have to be a thing of our grade-school pasts! I find it's a great way to show a little bit of appreciation to coworkers and friends - not to mention an excuse to buy adorable candy. I started this tradition with my rock candy treat bags last year, and here's my new design just in time for Valentine's Day.

I wanted to incorporate a more permanent element to the gift as well (even after the last tasty star has vanished), so I added a astronomy related quote on the opposite side from Carl Sagan to hang up.

These are super easy and fun to make! You'll need:

  • 4.75" x 3.5" clear treat bags (easy to find at your local craft store)
  • Star-themed candy (I got mine from Candy Nation here)
    Be warned - these sweet-tart candies are delicious. You may need to account for some surplus for snacking while you craft! 
  • Cardstock or heavyweight printer paper
  • Color printer
  • Scissors or X-acto knife
  • Stapler

  1. Download the printable here! 
    (the colors may look different in your browser, but it will look the same as the design pictured once downloaded.)
  2. Print the pdf double-sided onto your card stock, and trim out each label square. Fold down the middle evenly.
  3. Fill your treat bag with a helping of candy, and fold the top of the bag over to ensure no stars will escape. 
  4. Place your label around the folded edge of your treat bag, and staple towards the bottom edge.
  5. BAM - You have a fun valentine to give the stellar people in your life!

Enjoy!  Brigette
