Like all American children, I grew up exchanging little Valentine cards with everyone in my class each February 14. I especially loved the years when the teacher let us make ‘mailboxes’ out of shoe boxes. I always covered mine with tissue paper flowers. The more the better. At the end of the day, when I opened my mail, there were always one or two cards that were a little fatter than the others. Those were the ones that had candy inside the envelope, usually in the form of tiny conversation hearts. Circa 1980s deliciousness.
These little Cupid’s arrow cards are a small upgrade on those Valentines. Circa 2019 me prefers chocolate, so I made these for Reese’s cup hearts (or any chocolate heart-shaped candy) instead. They are super easy to assemble, and adults and kids alike will love their treat.
STEP 1 Download and Print Your Tags
Download the PDF using the link at the bottom of this sheet. Save it to your hard drive or a thumb drive. The PDF is a letter size, 8.5×11 inch sheet, with eight 3.5 x 2.5 inch tags on a page.
For paper, use a bright white cardstock. If you do not have a printer, you can also just have them printed at an office store local to you. The cost is less than a dollar per sheet, and many vendors will also cut them for you.
Once you are ready, print as many sheets as you need.
STEP 2 Cut Out Your Tags
I prefer to use a paper cutter when I am cutting out tags, as it helps to get the corners perfectly square using the guides. I love my Purple Cows Trimmer. If you don’t have a paper cutter, however, you can also use scissors.
STEP 3 Adhere Candy
Use a non-toxic adhesive dot or double-sided tape to attach any small wrapped chocolate heart to the tip of the arrow. Orient the candy in the same direction as the red heart. If you would like to write a message on the cards, I recommend doing that before you attach the candy.
You are going to be the most popular kid in class this Valentine’s Day.
