"These Valentines Map Heart treat bags are really easy and fun to make. Not only do they look gorgeous but they can be made special by using maps personal to you, such as of your favourite places or where you met. If you don't have a sewing machine you could try sewing these by hand. Also if you have larger treats then you can use a larger template and make bigger heart treat bags. "

I intend to make these with fabric instead of paper. Great idea for childern to use paper. It's always convient to have crafts available for gift giving.
