Easy Homemade Valentines Card with FREE Printable

I wanted to create a quick and easy homemade Valentines Day gift and card that my daughter could hand out to her class. I know I could buy simple ones and add some candy and be done with it, but as soon as I saw these cute Valentines Day themed pencils and super cute pencil toppers at Michaels the other night, inspiration came to me. I love a good play on words, and of course, I wanted to tie in the pencil theme with a Happy Valentines message. I knew I was WRITE on track to a perfectly WRITEeous homemade Valentines Card, with all the WRITE stuff at home to make this cute gift idea. = )

Homemade Valentines Pencil Gift Idea

I made two different versions of the Valentines card printable. One which requires a 2″ circle punch, and a simpler one that can just be cut out into rectangles.

I love my circle scalloped punch from Fiskars, and thought this would make the perfect pencil tag shape for this Valentines Day craft.

Here is the printable if using a circle punch:

Write On Valentines circles

I provided gray circles around the type on the template to use as a guide. I printed them out on some pretty colored cardstock paper, punched out each scalloped circle, and then used a regular hole-punch at the top of each circle shape. Then I carefully attached each tag onto the pencil and finished off with a pencil topper. The 1/4″ hole will be snug enough that the tag will stay in place and won’t fall off of the pencil.

For the simpler, rectangular card template, I provided cut lines as a guide as well. Simply print onto colored cardstock again, and cut out each rectangle. Punch a hole at the top and bottom of the rectangle, and slide each pencil through to make a card flag on each pencil.

Assemble the Valentines for a lovely pencil bouquet of homemade Valentines Day Cards, ready to pass out to your child’s class.
