As I was playing around with Valentines for my Valentines this afternoon I thought I would gift one to you as well – a quick & fun tutorial!

Here is precisely how I made myself some Candy Stuffed Valentines: 

1. Supplies
2. Parchment paper
3. Sewing machine

4. Scissors

5. Scrap paper
6. Valentines candy

 

 

Step One
Cut one 5 inch piece of parchment paper off the roll. Fold in half and cut into a full heart shape leaving the fold of the paper at the bottom.

 

 

Step Two
Cut smaller hearts out of your scrap paper. I used mine to spell out the word “Valentine”. Cut as many little hearts as you need for your Valentine message.

Step Three
Start at the base of the heart near the fold and sew up the sides. Stop halfway down the 2nd side. Leave the needle in the paper.

Step Four
Carefully insert your scrap paper hearts & candy into your half-sewn Valentine. (Yes it is possible to do this without getting chocolate all over your sewing machine – even if your using giant XO candy made by Moonstruck Chocolates like me!)

Step Five
Finish sewing up the side of your Valentine securing your secret message and treats inside.
