I love Valentine’s Day, and I especially love creating sweet gifts for my boys and their friends. I wanted to focus on making a non-candy Valentine treat since our homeschool group does a sugar-free celebration, and I came up with these adorable heart arrow pencils + a printable “You’ve got the write stuff, Valentine!” card.
Today I’m participating in a super sized DIY Valentine Ideas blog hop organized by The Cards We Drew, so be sure to stick around after the tutorial for even more awesome Valentine’s Day gift ideas!
All it takes to create these cute arrows are holiday pencils, Duck Tape, paper and glue! To create the arrow’s feathers, I folded a strip of Duck Tape around the eraser end of the pencil and cut it to shape with non-stick Duck Tape Scissors (one of the handiest tools ever!).
Glitter paper is perfect for the heart arrow tips, and there’s no quicker way to cut loads of glitter hearts than with my Ellison AllStar SuperStar machine! I used the 4-Up Hearts die #A10644 (one of my favorites!) because they’re the ideal size for this project.
