Spread the love (and sweet treats!) in a handmade Woven Heart Treat Bag. It’s very simple, although it does require a bit of precision. Your Valentine will know your gift is from the heart.

Things You'll Need: 

  • Printable template
  • Colored cardstock in two different colors
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick or tape
  • Ribbon (optional)
  • Sweet treats or small gifts


  1. Print the template onto two different sheets of colored cardstock. Two pieces will create two hearts.
  2. Cut out each oval template.
  3. Fold the oval template in half and cut along the lines. Repeat with the second oval.
  4. Align two folded oval halves at a 90 degree angle to create a heart.
  5. Begin weaving the first strip through the opening in the opposing color and continue with an outside-inside pattern.
  6. Do the same with the second strip, alternating the starting color.
  7. Repeat the weaving with the third and fourth strip.
  8. Glue or tape a ribbon or strip of cardstock at the point of the heart to create a handle.
  9. Fill with yummy treats!
