Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Is there anything sweeter than a homemade valentine? We don’t think so. That’s why we came up with this easy and elegant craft for those of you who care to make cards with a personal touch.
The final product? A heart shaped valentine with a witty message & a roll of Smarties attached.
What you will need:
- Cardstock – Choose a color for your Valentine.
- Box cutter or X-Acto Knife
- Valentine Smarties or Original Smarties rolls
- 1 Sharpie, permanent marker or glitter pen!
Step 1: Make a heart.
Fold cardstock in half and cut half of heart shape like this:
Step 2: Hold Smarties roll in front of the heart. Use your box cutter to make to vertical slits in the heart where the twists are located.
Step 3: Press the twist ends through the slices you made in the heart. Turn over to really make sure the ends are pulled through to secure the candy to the Valentine.
Step 4: Grab your pen & decorate to your heart’s content! Some cute messages you might use include… “Don’t go breakin’ my heart!” “Giving you my heart is smart, Valentine!” “You’re a sweetheart!”
We hope you enjoy the craft, and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Smarties fans have spoken… They want more glimpses into the candy-verse! Favorite features in January (below) elicit responses such as a sudden desire to dive/swim, lots of OMG’s, LOL’s and comments including the word “heaven.”
February is here, and we expect nothing but love on the horizon this month. Don’t forget to show your Valentine how much you love him/her by tucking a roll of Smarties into their purse, backpack or suitcase.

Who knew Smarties could double as “dry stack stone” for this remarkably detailed Fallingwater Gingerbread House? The original home, designed by famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright, was built between 1936 and 1939. The name Fallingwater is fitting as the home sits atop a waterfall and is recognized as a National Historic Landmark in Pennsylvania.
