How to make your own Candy Filled Valentines!

Here’s what you need:

Cardstock

Pencil and scissors

Letter stickers

1/8 inch hole punch

Embroidery floss and needle

Valentine candy {We went with M&Ms!}

Begin by tracing and cutting out two hearts on your cardstock.

On the front of one heart, add the stickers to create your own conversation heart.

Place both hearts on top of each other. Using the 1/8 inch hole punch, begin punching holes along the edge. I spaced them about every centimeter or so. These will be the holes you use to stitch up the Valentine.

Once you’ve punched out the holes all the way around the heart, begin stitching shut with your embroidery floss and needle. Leave about 2 inches not stitched so you can fill with candy!

Stitch shut after it is filled with candy. Tie a bow with the extra embroidery floss and trim the excess.

Aren’t these adorable?

You can get kids of any age involved in this craft! Reed helped me stitch the heart. Great for fine motor skills!

I love how they look like conversation hearts! You can personalize them too! Use the kids names instead of phrases.
