2011 DIY Valentine’s Day Brownie Bags

January 19th, 2011

*UPDATE: Download the latest version of the bag here. Enjoy and happy early Valentine’s Day to all!

Out of all the posts featured here on T&T, my Valentine Treat Bags have been by far the most popular. I know that many of you have been awaiting the updated 2011 version so without further ado, here they are!

Instructions are included in the PDF and if you need bags, I sell them in my Etsy shop. The bags are available in Craft and White along with the the Glassine Liner Bags to help maintain freshness for perishables and protect the paper from oil stains.

Just download the file and print directly onto the paper bag using a color ink jet printer. For more detailed instructions and other printing suggestions visit my previous post here. Once you’ve made the bags, fill with heart shaped brownies cut with a cookie cutter. Have fun!

    I was wondering where you buy those glass milk bottles? I’d love to order them in bulk, but I can’t seem to find anybody who sells non-antique versions for a reasonable price. Help a girl out? Thanks!

    Hi Jillian,
    I actually found these at my local grocery store. They were on the more expensive side though – about $3.50 each. They come in chocolate milk too which was equally as adorable! I saw these mini creamer jars at Crate & Barrel and thought they might be a good cheaper alternative. Good luck and happy Valentines Day!

    so cute and a great idea thank you so much for the download

  35. Jeanee Says:


    I featured your brownie and goodie bag on my blog today!


  36. Sharon Says:

    I can download the file just fine and even see it in Adobe, but I cannot print it from Adobe in the correct size nor import it into one of my graphics programs from which I have printed in past years (PSE or Serif PagePlus); I am told that it is an invalid pdf format. PSE is requiring a “permission password” — something I have never set. Any ideas how I might get to use your wonderful file this year?

  37. Megan Says:

    HELP! Where do I get the straws??

  38. Rita May Says:

    I love this! I printed them out on white paper and cut them out, then glued to a lunch bag. I known for my homemade brownies. Make them twice a week! So I’ll me making gift bags for my family.

  39. lynette Says:
