Lifestyle blog Crafty Morning celebrates Valentine's Day on a budget with this clever Minion treat tutorial. Taking the world by storm, the animated characters have inspired countless clothing lines, branded campaigns and DIY projects like this one in recent months.
Made using four simple materials -- construction paper, packaged Twinkie snacks, paper hearts and stick-on googly eyes -- these Minion treats are an inexpensive Valentine's Day treat that kids will love. Using pieces of cut construction paper, decorate your Twinkie packages with a larger and smaller strip that will represent the characters' costumes and facial characteristics.
Accent the upper strip with a googly eye and leave the lower strip blue to represent a Minion's signature uniform. Once finished, decorate your DIY treats with custom note cards that read "You're One in a Minion." Appealing to young kids, this DIY project references a popular animated film but is budget-friendly unlike store-bought goods that are Minion-branded.
