Cupid’s Heart Glow Stick Valentines
- white card stock
- color printer
- glow stick bracelets
- free printables (RED, BLUE, PURPLE, GREEN)
Cut out each heart and the black bow and arrow pieces at the bottom of each page.
This part is for adults: cut a slit on each side of the heart in a slanted, off center fashion with open scissors. Gently press the blade of the scissors through each slit to make an opening for the glow stick. Make sure the hole is small enough to hold the glow stick in securely.
To put in the glow stick, slowly insert it into one of the holes from the front of the Valentine. Push the stick through the back and out of the hole on the other side. Be careful not to crack the sticks during this process, I accidentally set off a few of the glow sticks!
Each glow stick bracelet comes with a connector, so place it on the back end of the glow stick. To make Cupid’s bow, put a dot of glue on each end of the glow stick and carefully place the black arrow cut outs. Allow the glue to dry.
You’ve just completed your first Cupid’s Heart Glow Stick Valentine! Here is how they look with all of the different colors of paper and glow sticks…
This is a fun Valentine for school aged children to pass out, the kids love them some glow sticks! I hope you enjoy this Valentine’s Day craft, please share with others.
