Shot to the heart!!!!

On Friday I posted a picture of some supplies and asked who could guess what I was going to make? I didn’t receive any replies!!!!!!! I figured it was Friday, and everyone was ready for the weekend. I reposted the question over on our fanpage on Facebook and finally got some good guesses. Some people were very close and a couple were right on the mark! The supplies consisted of A pixy stix, 2 heart shaped chocolates, and a small craft foam heart…The result…. Cupid’s Arrow!!!

There are several ways you can use this arrow for Valentine’s Day. You can simply make the arrow and incorporate it into:

  • Treat Bags/Boxes
  • Treat stations
  • Attach to a Card
  • Attach personalized tag to the arrow

I decided to make a little Heart shaped card for my arrow…If you choose to do something like this, make sure you take a glimpse at the next few pictures because otherwise you will get stuck making your arrow all over again (Trust me, from personal experience!)

I first drew out a heart on pink cardstock paper about 4″x4″ and cut it out. Then I used an EXACTO Knife to cut two slits through the heart on opposite diagonal sides to fit my arrow through. With a Silver Sharpie marker, I wrote Happy Valentine’s Day. I took the pixy stix and slid it through the heart until it was postioned evenly. Using a Low Temp gluegun, I glued a tiny drop on the bottom of the piy stix and attached the foam heart. Then using 2 small glue dabs on the foil part on the back of the chocolate heart, I attached it to the pixy stix…And Voila! Isn’t it so cute!?

Sorry the Picture is bad!

You could always write on the back of the card or just make this as part of card or even write just the person’s name on the heart. If you want to use this craft at a party…It would be perfect as a placecard! 🙂
