All that Glitters: DIY Color Blocked Glitter Gift Bags for Valentine’s Day

DIY // Color Blocked Glitter Bags for V-Day

Adding a little sparkle to your Tuesday with a glittery color blocked gift bag idea, that will only take a few minutes to make.

Stuff these little bags with candies, cookies, jewelry, and more. Then, give them as affordable (but homemade) gifts to your friends for Valentine’s Day, birthdays, etc.

You can pair them with a batch of macaron and marshmallow sandwiches, homemade candied blood oranges, or heart shaped peppermint patties. Once they’re dry, fill the bags with your friend’s favorite sweets (or salty snacks) and you’re good to go.

How to make color blocked glitter bags

They’re so fast to make, you could easily throw these together last minute, if you’re pressed for time or are a little forgetful and need a go-to idea at the last possible moment. Been there!

 P.S. If you’re looking for a good glitter source, this set is the best. There are tons of different colors and the glitter quality (is that a thing?!?) is a definite thumbs up.

Thanks Kel! As long as it’s not sent to me in an envelope as a piece of hate mail, glitter is cool with me. Ha.

Aw, thanks Maritza and Karen.


Those are so beautiful! I usually have problems with glitter, the projects I’ve attempted with it didn’t turn out great. Somehow, the glitter does not get even and perfect. But I might give it another shot with this project!

I love this! So simple and pretty and I actually have all of these things already 🙂 Will be getting into a glitter mess with my toddler after all this week.
