Bible Candy Valentines {Tutorial & Free Printable}

by | Feb 7, 2014 | Printables, St. Valentine's Day | 17 comments

Love is Patient, Love is Kind 
1 Corinthians 13:4

This year for our upcoming St. Valentine’s Day card exchange, Snuggles decided to create Bible Candy Valentines to give to his family and friends!  I’ve run across variations of this idea in the past, some using Avery labels to create the text or silver wrapped candies.  We opted to create our own text boxes so that the “gold gilding” (on the edges of the bible pages) would show.  It was such a fun craft. Snuggles really enjoyed assembling the Bibles and can’t wait to hand them out next week on St. Valentine’s feast!

Bible Candy Valentines

Supplies:

  • 1 bag of Hershey’s Nuggets *Affiliate link (I purchased the 18 oz “Family Bag” of Milk Chocolate with Toffee & Almond, wrapped in gold)
  • 1-2 sheets of Black Card Stock cut into 2.25″ x 1.5″ cards
  • 1/8″ Red Ribbon cut in 2 1/2″ to 3″ lengths
  • Scissors and Glue Stick
  • Printable (or create your own)

 

I love it when our crafts/activities tie in nicely to our other studies.
 This week in Math we have been practicing counting by 2’s! 🙂 

Assemble:

  1. Glue about 1/2″ of the ribbon to the middle of your black paper rectangle.  
  2. Add additional glue to the paper and center the wrapped chocolates on the paper, side by side, over the red ribbon.  
  3. Cut out the printed text (from printable or create your own) and fold in half.  Cover the back with glue and attach it to the top of the chocolates, sticking the folded center down the middle of the two chocolates, creating the appearance of an open bible.  
  4. Take the ribbon and put a little glue in the center of the side facing you. Bring the ribbon over the two pieces of chocolate and place it right down the middle of the open pages. You might need to press the ribbon down gently (with your finger or a paperclip) so it will stick. Let dry completely. 

Snuggles added additional To/From labels to the back of each.

    This is just a wonderful idea! I have been mulling over ways to merge that verse and bring the focus of true love for V Day. This won't work for our allergies, but it is so creative!

    I love this idea and they would go perfect with the project I ordered, but not sure how it would go over with a secular preschool class…

    Thank you!! I made these to give to my 5th grade religious ed class, then decided to give them to the ladies in my Cursillo group, so now I'll be making more for the kids.

    Is there a way to download the printable without purchasing a scribd subscription?

    I printed these using Avery labels – there are 30 address labels per sheet. They fit perfectly over the two chocolates and there's no gluing involved.

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
