Valentine Card: Candy Cane Card

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Create a striped sensation, and get rid of those postholiday candy canes, with these confectionary Valentine cards.


  • Candy Canes
  • Red card stock
  • Ruler
  • Color-Aid paper
  • Craft knife
  • Non-toxic white glue
  • Markers


  1. Turn the red card stock into a card by scoring a crisp center fold: simply place a ruler where the fold will be (making each half 8 by 6 inches) and run the knife along the ruler without cutting through the paper. Fold the card in half along the score line.
  2. Tear the Color-Aid paper into a rectangle to fit on the front of the card. The white side will show through along the ripped edges and form a pretty frame. Glue this rectangle onto the card.
  3. Glue two candy canes in the center, facing each other to form a heart. Be sure to keep the wrappers on. (Mini canes would also be cute.)
  4. Write a message in the center of the candy heart or along the outside. Don't forget to sign the inside of the card, too.
