Valentine's Treat Tubes

We love the holiday of love at our house! So far, I have had fun making Valentine Petit Fours, Marshmallow Pops and  Mug Cake Gifts. When my now 17 year old daughter was little, she loved crafting ALL THE TIME. She was always cutting, gluing, colouring and finding something to make pretty. One year for Valentine's Day, we made some treat tubes just like these for her to hand out to a few friends. She spent hours on this project and it provided so much fun for her that I wanted to share it again if you have kiddos at home who love to she once did.
The best part of this project is that many of these materials might be on hand already, or can be easily made.
And each little treat tube can be made with it's own unique design too!
You can also fill this tube with candy or non-candy treats....whichever you like!
For this project, you will need:

A small hole punch
Twine {Dollarama}
Foam Hearts {Dollarama}
Scrapbook Paper {scraps will work}
Valentine's Day Stamp {Michaels $1.50}
Black cardstock
White stamp pad
Scotch tape 
Paper trimmer
Treats for filling the tubes

Step 1. Make the tags. Use a stamp and  bright white ink pad to stamp a message on blackcard. {Cut the tags to fit your stamp size.}Or just use black ink or white cardstock if that works!
Punch a hole in the corner of each tag.
Step 2. Cut scrapbook paper into 3" by 6" rectangles. This size will wrap around the tubes perfectly.
Step 3. Fill tubes with treats and staple each end. of the tube.
Here are some ideas for treats:
Smarties, Hersheys Kisses, cinnamon hearts, stickers, small erasers, etc.
Step 4. Wrap each tube with scrapbook paper and use scotch tape to hold it in the back.
Step 5.  Add a foam heart to the front and affix with tape on the back. Wrap with twine and add tags!
And now the treat tubes are ready for giving!
I would like mine filled with chocolate please! I have a weakness for chocolate!
 So adorably cute! I remember when my daughter made these and she also made little strips of jokes to put inside too! I really wish that I had saved some!

Thank you so much for visiting me!
You are the best!
