Easy Homemade Minecraft Creeper Valentine or Party Favor with Free Printable


My boys are huge fans of Minecraft.  They just love it!  So I had to come up with a fun and easy idea to make a homemade Minecraft Valentine.  These were just so great and so easy to make.  Plus you can use them for Valentine's Day or as a party favor.

This is what I used to make them:
Green cardstock
Sandwich bags
Green M&Ms (if you bought the Christmas ones on clearance, then you can use the green ones for this and save the red ones for Valentine's Day)
Glue Gun
Paper Cutter 
And Creeper face cut out of vinyl with my Silhouette

The first thing I did was cut the card stock into squares.  I cut them 4x4 inches.  Then I cut the middle square out.  I put the paper on the cutter and then put the edge at 3.5 inches, I did that for all 4 sides.

I then put the vinyl onto the sandwich bag using transfer paper.  If you don't have vinyl, you could easily just draw on the bag with a permanent marker or use brown M&M's and make the face with those.

I then glued down the edges of the bag to the 4x4 square and then filled it with the candy.

I then put the top square onto the bag and glued it down.

I trimmed the bag off and that's it!  Done!  Easy and so fun and cool (I can't call the things I make for my boys cute).
