crafty valentine card1.  You’ll need scissors, candy hearts, plastic (a zip-lock bag) and a heavier paper…like card stock.  Print off ‘You are a’MAZE’ing’ on your paper.crafty valentine card2.  Cut the plastic baggie apart so you just have one side and place the plastic baggie on the paper and cut out a 4 1/2 inch by 5 1/2 inch rectangle. crafty valentine card3.  Sew the plastic to the paper.  Sew the three sides first.

      Thanks for a great idea! My kids are so excited to sew with me. I'm going to have them sign their names in the bottom spot so it will be exposed when the candy is gone. I think I'll seal the opening with a sticker.
