Day 4 of the free Valentine’s Day Downloads. This is a simple way to let your child’s friends know that you care. Simply print, cut out and add a sparkly glitter pencil. It’s that easy.

Only 2 supplies are needed, paper and pencil. Hooray! I picked up my glitter pencils from the dollar section at Target, but I’m sure you can find them most anywhere. Glitter is hot right now!

Directions: Download this pdf. Print it out and cut them using the lines on the edges as a guide. Make a 1.5 inch cut on each side of the text. I tried smaller cuts, but the pencils wouldn’t fit without tearing the paper. It has to be 1.5 inches!!! Write the names you want and then add the pencil. Easy peas!


If you are looking for the boy version, you can get it here!.

    These are wonderful! What a great idea! This is perfect for my daughter who thinks she is too grown up for red and pink to give to her classmates. Thank you for saving me! And thank you for putting 4 on a page and not just 2. It seems like such a little thing, but it cut the amount of paper needed in half.

  25. Lisa

    Cute! I’ve been going back and forth on whether to do valentine’s for my son’s class or not (only about half the families are) but these are convincing me to do them. I think we’ll try crayons.

  26. Kimberly

    Very clever! Thank you so much for posting a free download.

  27. Julie P

    sooo cute! Thanks so much! I saw this and knew I finally had a reason to buy some shiny paper! 😀 I got a pack of 25 sheets of “core-dinations Cardmaker Series Pearls” for $3.99 at Joann’s. That’s more than enough to make them for all 3 of my kids’ classmates and teachers. Perfect with Pixie Sticks!

  28. Shane Grimes

    These are so sweet! My daughter is thrilled that she gets to give these to her 4th grade class. Thank you very much for this free download! 🙂

    My son also chose these to make for his class. Thank you so much for the great idea!

  30. Mari

    Thank you for this wonderful freebie! I am having a problem downloading it. Can you help?

  31. Thank you so much for these!!! I have made them for my two sons and friends. I think you are a creative genius!! They printed out beautifully on some heavier stock. I have also blogged them! Great idea!

    This is Awesome! Thank you! I used with glowstick bracelets from Dollar Tree! Excellent!

  33. Thanks for this! I used your printable but instead of glitter pencils (the age of child getting these is 1-2 years old), I had a bunch of glow stick bracelets that I used! Perfect, and exceptionally cheap to get at the Dollar Tree or the Dollar Spot at Target!

    Thanks again!

  34. Shannon

    Hi, these are just adorable! We’re using them with glow-stick bracelets for my son’s class. Found you through The Crafty Crow, thanks so much!

  35. AJ

  37. Thanks – I made these today with my daughter – fun and easy!

  38. Cristina

    Thanks so much for this wonderful freebie. Although here in Argentina we don’t celebrate Valentine’s day,I’m making them for my kid’s playgroup at Gymboree 🙂

  39. Misty

    Made these for my 3rd grader’s class- they are doing a no sweets Valentines too and we were going to create a fun card on the cricut but ran out of time, these were better and so easy- we bought pencils at the dollar store and paid .08 a valentine…plus now my daughter and some new pencils too!

  40. MelodyA.

    Thank you! So adorable.

  41. thank you for being so generous with your creativity 🙂 i was looking for a simple farewell gift for my colleagues and stumbled upon your post. i will replace “happy valentine’s day” with a heartfelt “thank you” and slot in a pen instead of a pencil, though. thanks again!

  42. DianeMargaret Miller

    These are SO great!!!
    My young daughter only has a few people to give things to, right now. I was thinking these would be cool but I think I’ll pay a little extra and get some of the pinker colored HONEY STICKS (cinnamon flavored, I think) Can I get a YAY for nature’s “candy”!!!
    In a year or two, I won’t be able to slip natural sweets past her and Honey Sticks are a personal favorite!!! LOL

  43. Greetings. I think there is a problem with your links. I hope it is possible to fix it!

  44. Christen Sussin

    Absolutely wonderful! Thanks for sharing.

    Looking on pinterest today and saw your free printable… my son randomly picked pencils to give out to his pre-K class and now they won’t look so lame with just a tied on piece of paper with his name on it. Now I will look like such a creative, crafty, mom! THANKS!

  65. Mrs Buckel

    Thanks for sharing your creativity and talents with those of us who value simple beauty!

  66. kristi

    My son would love to make these for his classmates however we keep getting a pop up that states ” The selected document can not be opened”

    • How are you trying to open the file? You should be able to open it via Adobe Acrobat. It is free to download. Hope that helps.

  67. I loved these so much I had to post and link on my blog.

  68. Thank you so much for the alternative to store bought Valentine’s for my kiddos. This year we’re making 3 class sets of them! 🙂 Happy <3 Day to you!!!

  69. Andrea Winbigler

    Thanks for this freebie! I found this on Pinterest and just printed them for my son’s school valentine’s. We will be putting Sixlets candy in them instead of pencils. I like the pencil idea, but he wants to give a candy valentine this year.

  70. Thanks for this freebie! Your art is beautiful and we used this for my son’s preschool Valentines. xoxo

  71. kbirdcarr

    Thanks so much for this free download! I love both the “girl” and “boy” versions. My first grade daughter is into bows and arrows since the movie Brave came out. She is thrilled to give out arrow cards. Thanks again for making these available to all!

  72. mae

    Love this! Thanks for the download 🙂 Happy Valentine’s Day!

  73. Johanna

    I’m putting these together right now for my 6th graders. Such a great idea. I love how it incorperates a pencil, they are going to get more than enough candy tomorrow as it is:)

  74. These are adorable! I just pinned them.

    <3 Christina @ I Gotta Create!
    Wildly Original link party is open.

  75. Hannah

  77. Holly

    Done, done and shared. These gems saved our day!! All 3 kids were thrilled to make (we used sugar candy straws – 10 for $1) and will give away at school tomorrow. THANK YOU and happy almost <3 Day.

  78. Super cute! Thank you for these! I design printables as well, and I homeschool! I thought I would mix up my kiddo’s Valentine’s bucket with some of my own creations as well as others to give them some variety (and save me a little time)! They are going to love these!

    Thanks again!


  79. Nancy Abrams
