Free Pencil Valentine Printables
One of the best parts of Valentine’s Day is all the candy, however when it comes to school and team Valentine’s Day parties there seems to be an overabundance of it. To minimize all the sugar intake, I have my daughter pick out a non-candy Valentine to pass out to her classmates. This year, we are sharing these pencil Valentines to her friends in soft ball and dance class. These Valentines are easy to make and only take a few minutes.
Here’s What You Need
Time: 10 to 15 minutes
- Free Printable
- White Card Stock
- Paper Cutter
- Cutting Mat
- Craft Knife
- Straight Edge
Pencil Valentine Printable Instructions
- First, print out this pencil Valentine printable. There are five to each page. You can use scissors, however a paper cutter makes this step quick and easy.
- Using a cutting mat, ruler, and craft knife, cut a one-inch horizontal slit on each end of the Valentine. Let the straight edge be your guide to make the perfect slit.
- Insert the top and bottom of the pencil into the slits. I bought the ones pictured here at the Target Dollar Spot. The “You are the WRITE friend for me” message should be shown on top.
Have your child sign his or her name at the bottom or the back of each Valentine. You can also use it as a book mark!

Hope you enjoy these Pencil Valentine Printables! My daughter will be passing them out to some of her friends this year for Valentine’s Day. I like them because it’s a great alternative to candy and sweets (not that I don’t L-O-V-E candy and sweets!).
