Pencil Arrow Valentines + Free Printable

These simple printable valentine cards are the perfect solution for busy parents wanting a fun, easy valentine for kids to hand out to friends at school. With a heart center with a pencil “arrow” tucked through, this is one valentine goody that will be put to good use! Let me show you how easily these come together.


Pencil Arrow Valentines with Free Printables

For this project, you will need…

Print the free valentine heart printable onto cardstock. Use standard or decorative-edge scissors to cut out each heart.

Punch a hole through either side of each heart, as shown.

To ensure your pencil will slide easily through the punched holes, cut four small notches at the top, bottom, left and right sides of each punched hole.

Now, slide your pencil through the holes. Cover the unsharpened end with an eraser tip…

…before finishing with a ribbon bow tied on the pencil’s eraser end.

This is a terrific valentine option for those wishing to enlist the help of little hands. They are great done in assembly-line fashion!

To grab the download for these valentines, click on this link or the image below.

As always, please be courteous when using these printables and remember they are intended for personal use only. Thank you!

Thanks so much for making PS a part of your day!

    HI Amy! Love your site, and as a teacher- I really love this printable and thank you ahead of time for the time you have saved me. Unfortunately, (probably becuase I am on the school computer) I can not download the printable or find th drop box. Would it be possible to email me the link?
