Swapping valentines at school is one of my fondest memories from grade school! Now that I have kids, it’s something my girls and I look forward to doing together each year. There are a ton of adorable store-bought valentines out there, but I’d much rather create something cute and fun. (I’m a scrapper, right?) Being a mom of 5 kids means keeping things simple is important as well, so I designed these simple lollipop labels and chocolate wrappers and sat down with my girls for an afternoon of DIY Valentine fun.
Lollipop label instructions:
1. Print out the above sheet of labels on smooth white cardstock.
2. Trim labels and round corners.
3. Punch a hole in the centre of the top and bottom with a 1/8 inch hole punch.
4. Sign labels and stick lollipop stem in the top hole first from front to back. Then bend the label slightly and stick the stem in the bottom hole from the back to the front.
* Note: larger lollipops work best (Blow Pops or Tootsie Pops, not Dum Dums)
Chocolate wrapper instructions:
1. Print out the above sheet of wrappers on smooth white cardstock.
2. Trim the wrappers and sign them leaving the bottom ½ inch of the wrapper blank where the other flap will cover.
3. Fold the wrappers around the chocolate.
4. Adhere on the back with a glue dot or other adhesive.
* Note: these wrappers fit Hershey’s Miniatures brand of chocolates
