I chews you A fun play on words and really, I’m just a sucker for awesome packaging and this tube full of colorful gumballs is a winner in my book!

I dig you! So very cute and if you are thinking of it at the end of summer, I bet you could stock up on the shovels for super cheap if you search the clearance racks.

Robot Valentine This one doesn’t have a catchy saying but isn’t lacking in cuteness – just wrap up a fun-size candy bar to make the robot’s body.

Kids holding lollie pops photo Valentine This is the second year I’ve seen these floating around the internet but they are still a totally cute idea. Take a picture of your child holding a fist out in front of them and then cut little slits above and below their hand and stick the handle of the sucker through the picture. Easy, personal and adorable!

Kids photo Valentine with candy Another great idea for personal photo Valentine’s and you could make quick work of it with some glue dots and candy hearts.

Valentine’s Butterflies Simple enough, but adds a little extra cute factor with googly eyes and a pair of wings for these lollipops!

You make my heart glow! Love these! One more candy-free Valentine idea that is fun and inexpensive. Again, if you are thinking ahead, before Halloween they had packs of 10 glow stick bracelets for $1 in the Target dollar section. I bet you could find them at a party store too for a reasonable price.

You’re just write for me. Cute and practical! Pencils make a fun Valentine for classrooms or a great gift from a teacher for her students.

I never “tire” of your friendship! These would be fun to enlist your child to help you make. I bet they would have fun helping you create the tire tracks on the cards! I know they make molded chocolate cars but you could make these candy-free if you wanted too with matchbox cars.

Valentine, you color my world Use a silicone mold to melt down broken crayon bits and form them into new heart-shaped crayons. I’ve seen this idea here and there but I love the cute cards and stamps that Heather from WhipperBerry came up with to finish the presentation!

I’d snap at the chance to be your Valentine! These gators are SO cute! They make use of pillow boxes for the alligators body – you could stuff them with whatever you like.

You’re a blast! What a fun idea that only involves a few small pieces of paper and some candy!

  9. I love the one that says our class would knot be the same without you. Thinking I may be using this for my kids in their classes this year. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Thanks so much for showing off my crayon valentines. I do have a favor to ask {and I don’t really want to come across as snotty} I would love if instead of saying “this crafter” you actually say WhipperBerry and link to the actual post rather than to your pin on Pinterest. It’s a fantastic idea to highlight other people’s work but we need to make sure that we are building each other up rather than taking other people’s ideas. Thanks so much!

    • Hi Heather, no problem! Sorry about that. I guess I was thinking people would click through to your post from the pin, but I will gladly change it for you. I had no intention of taking your idea and actually encouraged people to click through for the directions, etc. I will change the wording and add a direct link to your post instead.

    • Whoa, taking people’s ideas? I don’t think that’s quite what happened here!

      Tamara, I’m posting a Valentine’s Day craft soon, I would love to be included in this post and would be grateful for it since ALL the pictures you posted link back to pinterest which then links back to the blog. If people like the idea I know they’ll end up at my blog! Thanks for sharing these ideas and blogs!
