Butterfly Valentine Supplies

  • Colored cardstock that can be printed with your home printer. (No printer at home? No worries! You can easily make copies at big box office supply stores like Office Max)
  • Glue
  • scissors
  • googly eyes
  • Embellishments (glitter, bits of paper, stick-on jewels, etc)
  • Lollipop (Tootsie Pop, Blow Pop, etc. – anything round for the head)
  • Tape

TIP: If you prefer not to print a whole swarm of butterflies, print one butterfly on heavy cardstock and use it as a template. Kids can use the template to draw around and cut one out of construction paper and add their own special messages. This can be a fun Valentine’s Day butterfly craft.

How to make a butterfly Valentine

Download the Butterfly Valentine, print on colored card stock, cut out, make slits for the sucker, add some decorations (cut-out shapes of paper, stickers, glitter, etc.), insert the sucker, and then add some wiggly eyes to the top of the sucker.  You could even add a small piece of pipe cleaner for the antenna. Add a piece of tape to the back to keep the sucker securely in place. How easy is that!

Lollipop Valentines

Whether you call it a lollipop or sucker you can use Tootsie Pops and Blow Pops to make some clever Valentines that are sure to be a hit!

  1. These are so cute! I would love to give them as a thank you to my daughter’s little birthday guests. I would have to change the text then. Would you mind sharing the design file?

  2. I love these and thank you so much for the template! My daughter is so excited to be decorating these for her classmates this year!

  3. Can you share the design file with me? I would like to print on colored card stock but in the current format the white inner border will appear. If possible I would like to separate the layers.

  4. Thanks so much! Super cute and weren’t hard too make. My wiggly eyes kept coming off when I glued them on! What did everyone else do to keep those from falling off so I can use them again in the future?
