Cupid’s Arrow Valentine’s Cards

I always think that Valentine’s day sneaks up on you. This year it certainly has and I feel woefully unprepared for it. However, we did manage to make some of these Cupid’s arrow Valentine’s cards to hand out on the big day.

Make sure you follow my Valentine’s board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

You will need:

  • Red card
  • Paper straws
  • Tape
  • Pens
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Heart cookie cutter (optional)
  • Chocolate hearts

Cupid's arrow Valentine's cards

Start by either drawing hearts free hand or drawing around a heart cookie cutter. We opted for the latter option. Then cut it out.

For the tail of the arrow you can use a ruler to make it look really precise or again free hand it. I used a ruler, because I like things being precise. YC used mine as a template to draw around and EC free handed it. Again cut it out.  This is a really good craft to help little ones develop their scissor cutting skills.

Before you tape the heart onto the straw write your message onto the front of it.

Turn the heart over and lay the straw down the middle of it. I liked it with the pointed end of the heart at the tip of the straw so that it actually looks like an arrow head. When you have the straw in position tape it into place. Repeat the process at the other end with the tail of the arrow.

As our finishing touch we taped a chocolate heart onto the back of each of our paper hearts.

Our Cupid’s arrow Valentine’s cards are now hidden away in a cupboard waiting to be handed out. I wonder who will be lucky enough to get one.
