Materials for Printable Scratch-Off Valentine Cards
- White cardstock (and a printer)
- Scissors or a paper cutter (This is the paper cutter I use at home. It’s great to have on hand for small projects.)

- Optional: Various envelope options are listed at the end of the post.
- Free Valentine template
Directions for Making Printable Scratch-Off Valentine Cards
1. Print out your free sheet of valentine cards onto white cardstock.
2. Cut the cards apart.
3. Use a pen to write a message inside the blank rectangle on each card. (Younger kids can even draw a picture!)
4. Cover the message with a scratch-off sticker, and give your card to someone special.
And wait for them to scratch off the sticker to reveal their special message!
You can give these to someone special just as they are, or try out these options:
- Fold them in half and seal with a heart sticker.
- The valentines fit perfectly in these library pockets. You can get them in pink or a variety of colors. Fold the top down and seal it with a sticker.
- If you’re wanting to include a little goodie with your valentine, these white envelopes allow for some room for the valentine plus a small gift.
- Tape a penny on the valentines with some cute washi tape or just plain scotch tape.
Enjoy making these personalized cards for Valentine’s Day!
