I found these adorable tall skinny bags that are perfect for M&Mâ€™s or Reeseâ€™s pieces. They are so cute filled with a little treat bag topper for an event like a baby shower, wedding shower, birthday, Valentineâ€™s Day party, etc. I brought the Thanksgiving Reeseâ€™s pieces treat bag toppers to our turkey day gathering with family and they were a hit. I decided to replicate the cuteness for Valentineâ€™s Day.
I scored some white chocolate peppermint Christmas M&Mâ€™s for $.10 a bag on clearance at Target after Christmas. Be jealous. I donâ€™t prefer white chocolate but my kids donâ€™t discriminate when it comes to chocolate. And since they were red and white no one even knows they are Christmas M&Mâ€™s. So I have made them Valentineâ€™s Day M&Mâ€™s.
You can get the 1â€ x 8â€ test tube bags on eBay. I have found they are the cheapest there. I paid $6.60 out the door for 100 bags. That should last me all year since I usually only use about a dozen of them at a time.
1â€ x 8â€ bags (I bought mine on eBay-just search â€œ1â€ x 8â€ bagsâ€)
Red & white M&Mâ€™s
Glue Dots or double-sided adhesive
scissors or a Fiskars Scalloped Punch
Fill the bags with the M&Mâ€™s and then seal them. Print out the printable M&M Treat Bag Topper and use a scalloped punch to cut them out. Adhere them with glue dots onto the top front of the bags.
Arrange them in a little pail (Dollar Spot at Target). This would look adorable on a Valentineâ€™s Day brunch table, a teacherâ€™s desk, or simply in an entryway chest as part of your Valentineâ€™s Day Decor.
It looks like a little candy bouquet. YUM!
