DIY: Valentine’s treats by Melanie

February 10, 2010

This week Sarah has been sharing some pretty yummy tips regarding food and catering at your wedding. Now, Melanie of Lucky & Lovely would like to share a special DIY Valentine’s project that would be so fun to make for someone sweet in your life.


From Melanie:

Hello lovelies, I’d like to share with you a special Valentines treat. My inspiration was just a way to make the ordinary valentine a bit more special. I personally love sweets of any kind, anything from brownies, cookies, cupcakes and smores. I created this little treat for anyone to share with their sweetie no matter what your skills are. If you are the baking type, you might want to try a twist on the traditional brownie and try Joy the Baker’s Smore’s Brownie. I thought it would be cute if you use heart shape cutter to cut the brownies. If you run short of time, go to the best artisanal bakery in your area and purchase something delicious to package up with these sweet tags I created.


Here’s how:
I bought these smores and heart black and white cookies from Star Provisions, in Atlanta. Who wouldn’t want to wake up to this with a darling little card by Yellow Bird Paper Greetings or you can make your own. The kraft boxes were purchased at a local art supply store, but your baker may have pink bakery boxes as well or you can order these little sweet boxes off etsy.


Lastly, make sure the packaging is a delightful as your sentiment and the goodies being given. I created these little hang tags to finish off the valentine’s day treat. I used Kraft paper and a circle die punch. You can also find clean cut tags on here in many different colors. the tag is 2.5″.

You can download Melanie’s template here.

Enjoy and have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

Thanks, Melanie for sharing this mouth-watering inspiration with us!
