These glittery free printable valentines hold a sparkly necklace and are perfect for giving to tweens, teens, and adults too! Every year I love working with my kids on cute valentines for them to hand out to their friends at school, but this year I decided it would be fun to make valentines for my friends! Because us big girls deserve a little extra love this time of year too, right?
I thought instead of candy (we are still working on those new years resolutions after all) why not give my friends a little something to wear instead. A sparkly new necklace always makes me happy! These would also make great valentines for tweens and teens to give to their girlfriends. They are really easy to make with my free printable valentines and this awesome printable glitter paper makes them extra special!

Step One. Print Out Valentines.
Start by downloading the necklace cards printable. There are three colors available (Pink, Coral, and Black), so pick your favorite or print out all three! These valentine printables will work on regular cardstock of course, but to get that awesome glitter effect you will need the Core’dinations Printable Glitter Paper. This stuff is so cool – just look at that shimmer!
Trim along the outside edge of each card. Then use the scoring board to score along the center fold line so you can get that perfect fold.
Next, use the small hole punch to punch out the small gray hole on each card, and then use your scissors to clip along the line from the hole to the edge of the card. This creates a neat little slot for your necklace to hang from.
If you are feeling crafty, you could totally create your own necklace for this little valentine, but Consumer Crafts has a great selection of ready to wear jewelry at a great price. I especially love the stacking necklaces! I chose the Rhinestone Bar & Quartz Drops and Shiny Triangle and Rhinestone Chevron to give to my friends. You could give both necklaces together or split them up and get more bang for your buck.
To attach the necklaces to the printable valentines, slip the chain through the slits on either side of the cards and center the pendant on the front. Use transparent tape on the back of the card to secure the necklace in place. Finally, close the card up at the bottom using double sided adhesive.
You can add your name and the name of your recipient to the back of the valentine printables if you like.
The card is sized to fit into an A1 size envelope, but with the bulk of the necklace added they work well in an A2 envelope as well. Slip your cute valentine in the envelope, seal it up with some cute washi tape, and deliver it to your best friend to share the love this Valentine’s Day!
