These Valentine treat bags are quick, simple and inexpensive to make from  regular school notebook papers.

step 1     SUPPLIES:  notebook papers (one sheet will make 2 treat bags),  glue stick, scissors and stickers

step 2     Cut one sheet of notebook paper in half horizontally.  Each piece will measure 8″w by  5 1/4″ h (approximately).

step 3      Along one of the two short sides, make a fold about 3/4″ in from the edge and apply glue in that small area from top to bottom.

step 4     Bring the opposite edge of the paper to the folded line and fold over the sticky glue section of the paper.

step 5     To make the flat bottom of the bag, make a fold about an inch from the edge, forming a crease.  Open the base to reveal two triangles opposite each other.  Press down and flatten them.

step 6     See picture  as to where to apply glue (along the long open edges of the triangles and just one of the two bottom edges of the paper between the two triangles.

step 7     Starting with the bottom edge without the glue, fold about a half inch in towards the opposite edge.

step 8     Repeat  step 7 on the other bottom edge that has the sticky glue on it.  They will overlap each another about a quarter of an inch.  At the top of the bag trim it using decorative scissors.

step 9     Fill the bag with treats, fold the top over and seal it with a sticker.
