Craft Items You'll Need
Gather Craft Items Together
For this Valentine's Day craft, you'll only need a few things:
- Teddy Grahams - about 1/2 cup
- Zipper Bag, Sandwich-Sized
- Piece of Cardstock preferably, though you can use regular paper
I used off brand Teddy Grahams, it's what I had on hand.
Cut and Folded Paper
Cut Off a Piece of the Paper
Cut a square out of the cardstock or whatever paper you are using.
Try the piece of paper at least as wide as the top of your sandwich bag, about 6 to 7 inches should be right.
Then fold the paper in half.
Write Chosen Phrase on Half of Paper
There are a couple of really cute and "punny" phrases you can choose from, or just create your own. Make a pun out of the word bear or use beary to replace very.
Here are some suggestions:
- I like you Beary much!
- You're Beary cute!
- You're Beary nice!
- You're my Beary best friend!
- Bear Hugs for you!
- You're the Beary Best!
- I can't bear it if you won't be my Valentine!
Write your chosen phrase on half of the folded piece of paper. Make sure you write it so that you can read the phrase when the fold is above the writing. Don't write it upside down.
Phrase Written on Paper
If you don't want to hand write the tags for your Teddy Grahams Valentine's Day craft you can create some cute ones on your computer.
I've made up a couple and posted them below, feel free to use them if you wish.
To use the printable tags, simply right click on the image and save to your computer to print out when you are ready.

Other Half of Paper Written On
Write on Other Half of Paper
If you wish, you can write on the other half of the paper.
This is a good place to write who the Valentine is from or just Happy Valentine's Day.
Again, make sure you don't write it down upside down. The fold should be above the writing when it's written.
Tag for Valentine's Day Craft
Decorate Craft Tag
Decorate your craft tag with whatever you want.
I thought little hearts for Valentine's Day would be nice.
To the right is a picture of my tag after I'd written on it and then decorated it with some hearts. It's slightly flattened so you can see both sides a bit.
Get Some Teddy Grahams Now
Get a Variety Pack of Teddy Grahams
You can easily just attach the beary tag to an individual packet of teddy grahams as well. It's a little easier and just as cute.
Buy Multi-Packs of Teddy Grahams
If giving this craft to a class, you can just buy enough smaller packages of Teddy Grahams for the class and add a tag to each one.
Teddy Grahams in a Bag
Place Teddy Grahams in Bag
Put some Teddy Grahams in the plastic baggie and seal it shut.
Just put however many graham cookies into the bag as you want, about 20 or so is good.
Or if you're giving this as just a sweet gift for a snack or as a lunch side, put how many cookies you'd normally put into their lunchbox.
Staple Tag to Plastic Bag
Place the tag over top of the plastic baggie. The writing should show on each side with the baggie sandwiched in the middle.
Depending on how many Teddy Grahams you put in the bag, you may want to roll the baggie top down a little so that less empty plastic baggie is showing.
Then staple the tag to the baggie. I like to put the stapler down over the tap and bag, and staple it near the bottom of the paper close to one side, then slide it over and staple it on the other side. This makes it nice and even.
