Valentine Treat Toppers

Do you have BIG plans for Valentines Day!?!  My good friend is here to show us a simple, cute idea to make Valentines special for your sweeties!  Thanks for sharing A Craft Made by You Emily! These 3D Heart Valentine Treat Toppers could be used as cupcake toppers, fruit skewers or simple decorations for any Valentine’s Day treat!
Hi, I’m Emily from 52 Mantels and I’m SO happy to be here today! Do you love Valentine’s Day as much as I do?? These DIY (washi tape!) 3D heart Valentine treat toppers are easy to make and super inexpensive. And, you just might have all the supplies already in your home!  I used them in fruit cups for a healthy snack, but truly, the sky’s the limit!
3D Heart Valentine Treat Toppers

3D Heart Valentine Treat Toppers



• white card stock
• scissors
• assorted washi tape (I used about 7 different patterns)
• pencil
• toothpicks, candy sticks or fruit skewers (I used toothpicks)
• glue stick


  1. Gather supplies and make a small heart template from card stock (size determined by desired size of toppers)
  2. Place rows of washi tape across card stock, from top to bottom
  3. Flip tape-covered card stock over and trace heart template in straight rows (I fit 30 hearts on one sheet of card stock)
  4. Cut out each heart. TIP: fold the hearts in half before cutting them out. Each heart will need a center fold to construct the 3D design!
  5. Separate hearts into piles of 3. Each topper will be constructed of 3 hearts.
  6. Place glue on the backs of 3 hearts. Place a toothpick in the middle of one heart
  7. Place a second heart on one side of the toothpick-ed heart
  8. Place the third heart on the opposite side of the toothpick
  9. Repeat with remaining hearts

This is an easy and inexpensive Valentine’s Day project, perfect for a Valentine’s Day party…or just for a fun treat for your kiddos. My daughter loved having special fruit cups with her lunches this week!   (In case you’re wondering, the chevron treat cups were purchased at HomeGoods. Don’t you love that store??)
