  • Orange, yellow and blue scrapbook paper
  • glue
  • adhesive dots (if you want the eyes to appear raised)

  2. Punch two 2″ orange circles and two 1″ yellow circles
  3. Cut a large triangle for the nose
  4. Cut two large curved triangles for the ears and fringe

Cupid’s Valentine rice krispies treats

Valentine Rice Krispies Treats  

I’m hosting a Valentine playdate this week for my Kindergartener and some of his friends. So this weekend I tested my idea for an easy Valentine snack, Cupid’s Arrow Rice Krispies Treats.

Valentine Treats

I think they turned out really well! And so did my boys. I caught them sneaking them just after I photographed them. I live with two comedians… {grin}

To make my heart Rice Krispies Treats with cupid arrow, you’ll need:

  • Rice Krispies treats prepared (still warm)
  • Heart cookie cutter
  • Butter (for your hands and the cookie cutter)
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Paper straws
  • Pink paper (triangle for tip and rectangle with triangle cut out of one end and fringed for feather)
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Wax paper

And here are the super easy steps for making shaped Rice Krispies:

  1. Apply butter to your hands, your cookie cutter and a bit to your wax paper.
  2. Mold your Rice Krispies into the cookie cutter and set aside each heart.
  3. Once you’ve made all your hearts, pierce them with a lollipop stick.
  4. Cut a paper straw and slip it on each end of the lollipop stick.
  5. Cut paper as noted above, glue to straw ends

It’s that simple to make Cupid’s Arrow Rice Krispies Treats. Happy Monday and Valentine week everyone!

And as always I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!

four FREE kid Valentine ideas

FREE Valentine Cello Toppers

Hi everyone! I’m Cris of Crissy’s Crafts and I am so excited to share some adorable kid Valentine ideas using Kim’s FREE Valentine Favor Cello Toppers.

We have Rawr-iffic dinosaur Valentines, tweet owl Valentines and buzzingly beautiful ladybug Valentines… something to please both boys and girls! It just makes me happy to give someone a cute little package that is handmade! Oh, and the best part, you can personalize your child’s name in the file before printing!

Dinosaur-Valentine-Idea

Let’s start with the Rawr-iffic dinosaur Valentine. To package this treat you will need scrapbook paper (optional), FREE Dinosaur Valentine treat topper, dinosaur favors (I found these little guys at Wal-Mart), clear 4″ cello bags, scissors and a stapler. Or, you can use hot glue to seal.

If you use the scrapbook paper inside the clear bags, make sure you cut the scrapbook paper slightly smaller than the bag. Place the dinosaurs inside and staple to attach together on each side of the treat bag topper.

Owl kid valentine ideas

These Valentines are a HOOT! For the owl Valentine, you can pack the treat just like I did for the dinosaur Valentines, OR just tape the treat on the FREE Owl Valentine Cello Topper using double sided tape. I found the cute Owl lollipops at the Dollar Tree!! So cute, right?

Ladybug Valentine Idea

And for the little ladybug Valentines I decided to get creative in the kitchen. I love making thing for friends and family! This sweet ladybug pretzel is super easy to make and your kids can help! I found the tutorial on My Crunchy Life. Once the chocolate is completely hardened you can pack these cuties the same way as the dinosaur Valentines.

There you have it! Three free printable kid Valentine ideas and three different ways to give that special someone a little handmade love! Oh, but there are four in the set… yep there are robot valentines too! Download your free Valentines now and enjoy!

DIY Valentine bear mailbox

DIY kid Valentine bear mailbox

Need Valentine mailbox ideas for your child’s class party? Want it to be a fun kid craft… instead of a mommy craft? My little guy made his Valentine mailbox today out of a tissue box. He chose to make a bear. His nickname is bear… and fittingly he was wearing his “bearly asleep” pjs. Not planned I promise! He just loves them. {grin}

Super easy how to make a Valentine mailbox supplies and instructions:

  • Tissue box
  • 2 tones of brown cardstock
  • black cardstock
  • brown pom for tail
  • glue
  • adhesive dots (if you want the nose to appear raised)
  • 1″ circle punch
  • 2″ circle punch

And steps:

  1. Cut a large circle for the head out of brown cardstock. We just used a bowl as a template. I know… super crafty. {smirk}
  2. Punch two small light brown 1″ circles for the ears and three black for the eyes and nose
  3. Punch one light brown 2″ circle for the nose
  4. Attach ears and eyes with glue
  5. Attach nose with adhesive dots for raised effect, or just glue. Cute both ways.
  6. Attach face and tail with a dot or two of hot glue.

Kid Valentine Ideas

Need an idea for kids Valentines?!

Kid Valentine Ideas

My son whipped this easy monster Valentine idea up this weekend using just a few things around my craft room:

  • laser printer paper folded in fours, like a small card,
  • Elmer’s Glue to glue down the edges,
  • Crayola crayons to color his design, and
  • last but not least plastic rolly eyes. And yes, that is the technical term on the package. {smirk}

I, as his mom, and fellow crafter, thought it was adorable. And if you see either one of his grandmothers… don’t tell them because he plans on giving one to each of them. {grin}

6 DIY paint chip Valentine Day crafts

6 Valentine Day Paint Chip Crafts

Hi there! It’s Deanna, from Mirabelle Creations, and I’m excited to share six easy and inexpensive (my favorite combination!) Valentine’s Day crafts. With just a heart shaped punch and a few paint chips from your local home improvement shop, you can recreate these sweet looks.

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. By the middle of February, Christmas decorations have been put away for some time and all those toys from Christmas don’t seem so shiny and new. Valentine’s Day is a perfect way to add just a little sparkle to the long stretch between Christmas and Easter. Our family Valentine’s Day usually consists of a few simple decorations, little trinkets to show how much we appreciate one another, and a Valentine’s Day themed dinner. Make sure you hop over to my blog and download my FREE Owl Always Love You Valentine Party Printables!

I have six heart shaped crafts for your Valentine’s Day:

  1. Heart Garland,
  2. Heart Cupcake Toppers,
  3. Beverage / Bottle Pendant,
  4. Heart Hair Ribbon,
  5. Heart Canvas Art, and
  6. Heart Favor Bags.

Heart Craft Punch

To start you need a heart shaped punch. I picked mine up at a local crafts store. With a 40% coupon, it only cost about $6. Then, you’ll want to stop by your favorite paint shop or home improvement store to pick up paint chips. (Tip: If you’re wondering where to get paint chips. Ask the paint desk, they’re glad to give you any old paint chips that they plan to throw away. And if they don’t have your color, most craft stores offer cardstock shades, and each sheet is between .16 and .25 each.) With those items and a few other craft supplies, you’ll be ready to get started.

Paint Chip Heart Banner Craft

DIY Heart Garland

For this garland, you’ll also need a hot glue gun and bakers twine (or other string). To make the garland, simply hot glue two hearts of the same color on either side of the twine. Gluing together two hearts of the same color will assure that when you hang the garland, the backside of the paint chip will not show.

Paint Chip Heart Cupcake Picks

Easy Heart Cupcake Toppers

These paint chip party supplies couldn’t be simpler! After punching out your paint chip heart, use a glue dot to attach the heart to a small lollipop stick. If you don’t have lollipop sticks on hand, you could also use a toothpick. And if no glue dots, a spot of hot glue works every time!

Quick Beverage / Bottle Pendants

To decorate a plain glass bottle, simply wrap baker’s twine around the bottle and secure with a glue dot. Use a glue dot to also adhere the paint chip heart to the glass bottle. The heart shape bottle pendant is a great way to turn an ordinary after school snack into a extraordinary Valentine’s Day treat.

Paint Chip Hair Bow

Simple Heart Hair Ribbon

My little girl has decided she has gotten a little too big for a Valentine’s Day t-shirt or outfit. But, she is definitely not too big to go to school on Valentine’s Day with a heart inspired hairdo! By simply hot gluing paint chip hearts onto the end of a ribbon, a French braid becomes a subtle holiday hairdo.

Paint Chip Heart Canvas

Lovely Heart Canvas Art

I wanted to add just a little bit of Valentine’s Day décor to my mantle, without going overboard. I saw a rainbow heart shaped canvas project on Pinterest and knew it would be a clean, unassuming addition to the mantle. To make this project, choose paint chips that create a ombre effect and hot glue them onto an 8×10 canvas.

Paint Chip crafts

Sweet Valentine Heart Favor Bags

For the heart favor bags, you’ll also need favor bags, twine, and glitter glue. Trace the outline of your paint chip heart with glitter glue. Wrap baker’s twine around a small favor bag and attach the twine to the back of the bag with tape. After the glitter glue dries, glue the heart to the bag and fill with candy or a small treat.
