Easy DIY Valentine Card Project: Chocolate Heart Holder

DIY Chocolate Heart Valentine Card

These sweet little cards are so easy to make with just a few materials. They are perfect for the kids’ Valentines, party favors, or friend gifts. You can use any wrapped heart candy for the center. I used Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups since I already had some on hand, but you can make them with whatever your favorite is. Hand write a little note, and they will be sure to keep the Valentine card long after the chocolate has been devoured.


Paper Cutter or Scissors
Pink Cardstock
Circle Punch, 2 inch
Hole Punch, 1/8 inch
Thin Ribbon
Wrapped Heart Candy

STEP 1 Cut Paper

Using your paper cutter, cut a strip of paper about 3.5 x 7 inches in size. I used this pink parchment cardstock, so that my card would have a little romantic texture.

STEP 2 Punch Circle

Using your two-inch circle punch, cut out a hole from one end of the card. If you do not already have a punch, do not hesitate to buy one, as it will come in handy over and over.  I’ve had this one for five years and it still punches like new.

STEP 3 Fold in Half

As the step says, fold in half.

STEP 4 Attach Heart

Using double-sided tape, attach the heart so that it is perfectly framed by the circle.

STEP 5 Punch Small Hole

Using a small hole punch, make a hole at the top just below the fold.  You will insert the ribbon through this hole.

STEP 6 Tie Ribbon

Pull the ribbon one time through the hole and then tie a bow. Cut the ends so they’re even. So sweet.
