DIY Valentine Candy Cards Directions
Start by cutting out your candy cards using your Cricut or other cutting machine. Once you hit “Make It,” you can move and rotate the second card to the first mat and cut two at a time.
Cut a piece of cellophane approximately 4” square. Use a glue stick to glue the cellophane to the back of the favor to make a “window.” If you are having a hard time getting your glue to stick, you can use E6000 (I have found the glue stick works better on some cardstock than others).
Then fold the favor on the scoring lines. Use the E6000 glue to adhere the two side flaps to the back piece to form a pocket. Allow the glue to set.
Fill the favor with M&Ms or other coordinating candy and seal the flap using a glue dot or sticker! You can use the hearts you cut out to make a little garland as well, if desired!
