Valentine's Day Craft: Kernels of Love

Kernels of Love

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

'Tis the season for corny sentiments, so do like the Woodard girls of Alvarado, Texas, and tell your teacher (or a friend) she's tops with a card that doubles as a snack.


  • Scissors
  • White card stock or poster board
  • Ruler
  • Red marker
  • Glue stick
  • Individually wrapped packages of microwave popcorn
  • Masking or clear tape


1. Cut a popcorn-box shape (ours is 8 inches tall and 6 inches across at the top; or try our template) and a smaller rectangle for a label from the card stock.

2. With a ruler and marker, draw lines on the front of the box. Add a message and a border to the label, then glue it in place.

3. Tape the popcorn to the back so that it sticks up above the container.

Suggested messages:

To a pop!-pop!-pop!-ular teacher

I don't mean to be corny, but you're the greatest!

I'm e-kernel-ly yours
