Whip up these sequin heart treat bags for your Valentine in under 5 minutes!I found these iron on applique hearts on Etsy, but you could easily make your own with fusible web.

Whip up these sequin heart treat bags for your Valentine in under 5 minutes!Lay your heart sequin side down and position the treat bag over it. Hold iron in place (will be on the back of the bag instead of on top of the heart) for 15 seconds. Let cool, fill with goodies, and you’re all done, just like that.

The great part about these bags is that they’re completely reusable and gift wise, almost just as good as the treats you’ll put inside!

Whip up these sequin heart treat bags for your Valentine in under 5 minutes!I’m curious to know, because I didn’t even think about this until almost chipping a tooth, but there’s much debate around this: candy hearts, love em or hate em?

Paint Swatches by The Crafted Life

Happy, happy Friday friends! I’ve been working away on some homemaker projects that I can’t wait to share with you (you’ve probably seen sneak peeks on Snapchat). Although I’m almost done, I’ll most likely be spending the weekend building furniture, so send wine. Whether you’re spending the next few days sprucing things up around your home, or just relaxing with some friends, here are some links you won’t want to miss:

– Did you grab your free Valentine’s/Galentine’s Day printables?

– While you have your printer on, grab these rap lyric Valentines too.

– Iron on gold foil?! YES.

– All the fringe.

– Just the prettiest bouquet!

– Oh snap, this is brilliant.

This ice cream is totally healthy, right?

Have a great weekend!

Melted Chocolates with Edible Gold Foil

Melted Chocolates with Edible Gold FoilIf you’re looking to make your Valentine a sweet treat, what says I love you more than edible gold foil?! These melted chocolates are possibly the easiest dessert you can whip up and they’re equal parts delicious and fun. Here’s how:

Time: 25 minutes
Materials: melting chocolates, edible gold foil, mold, pan/spoon

Melted Chocolates with Edible Gold FoilYou can buy any color of candy melts you want, same goes for the shape of the mold. I found both of mine at my local party store, but Michaels and Amazon have a pretty decent selection. A heart shaped mold would be super cute for Valentine’s Day, and well, everyday if we’re being honest.

Melted Chocolates with Edible Gold FoilMake sure all of your utensils are dry before beginning. Water causes the chocolate coating to harden and steak. You can either melt your chocolates in the microwave (stirring every 30 seconds until melted) or with the double boiler method on the stove.

Melted Chocolates with Edible Gold FoilOnce your chocolate is melted, pour into your mold. It helps to run the back of a knife across the top to smooth the bottom of your candy out. Tap the mold on a hard surface to get rid of any air bubbles (important step!) and then set in the freezer for 10 minutes. Your chocolates should pop right out once you remove them from the freezer!

Melted Chocolates with Edible Gold FoilTo complete, apply gold foil to your chocolates by placing the sheet on the surface and smoothing with your finger. Easy as that! Store at room temperature (don’t put back in the fridge) and keep away from heat and light.

Enjoy!
