Easy Valentine’s Day Craft Idea: M&M Candy Pouches {Free Printable}

This post contains affiliate links.

One of my favorite things about Valentine's Day is coming up with fun and easy valentines.  Some of my favorite posts have been my M&M candy pouches that I made for the holidays.  They have been a huge hit, so I had to make them for Valentine's Day.  It's a very easy craft to do and I love how they turn out.  I decided to makes an owl, a bear and some conversation hearts.

This is how I made them:
Using my Silhouette, I cut out the shapes out of card stock. For each pouch I cut two shapes.

For the conversation hearts, I wrote on the sandwich bag with a permanent marker.

Then with a glue gun I glued the back heart onto the bag.  I just glued the edges.

I filled the bag with M&M's and then put the top shape onto it.  Then I glued it on,  I put the hot glue directly onto the bag to melt the plastic and sealed the sides together.

I did the same thing to the other shapes.  Then I trimmed the sides.

I added some paper and drew faces onto the animals.  Then I added the printable into them.  You can get the free printable here.
