Be My Valentine M&M Sticks



Updated bag information: I am getting lots of questions on where to buy the bags for the M&M tubes. I purchased them from GT Bag Company at that time (2011) and more recently from Clear Bags R Us (thanks to Renee for sending me their direction). The bags are 1 x 8 lip and tape bags. Good luck with your projects. 

Happy Valentine's Day Sweet Friends!!! I'm sending each of you a virtual M&M stick!!!! I made PLENTY as you will see. They just make me happy sitting on my desk. I keep arranging them in the glass containers. So today they will go to a Kindergarten classroom of the little boy that I mentor and my husband's office. 

 

Aren't these tags the most adorable things? I put them on the PTI tag sale #1 which fit perfectly.The orange tag tube actually has skittles in it for the peanut allergy kids. The tags are a free download from Hello, Good Gravy!



I know there has been a lot of discussion of how to fill the plastic tube. The easiest way is NO funnel or anything. Just start putting them in the tube and they line themselves up. I can finish an M&M bag in 15 minutes which makes 17 tubes of 24 M&M's in each.


I only colored the little heart on each Tiny Treats image. I think it is enough.




Don't you just love the Valentine color M&M's???? I also used twine from The Twinery. There color selection matches so well.


Stay sweet and enjoy the day friends!!!! ~Rhonda
