Printable Animal Valentines – Candy Huggers

Over the years as I have created things, I found that I love to re-purposed a beloved design into something with a brand new use! This year I wanted to make printable animal valentines so I played around with current woodland animals and I decided to create something fresh with my woodland forest animals.

The whole woodland animal SVG gang sells more than 5x per day in my shop. These adorable little forest creatures first caught on after I designed my cute little fox and created it for a freebie here on the blog, which you can still get. I even went on to make a few barnyard friends because of so many requests!

Thousands of you have loved this set and shared with me countless creative ways to use it – everything from onesie iron-ons to cake toppers, banners, and more.

Needless to say, I think ya’ll love them!

Since Valentine’s Day is approaching I started to think about what I could create with these favorite woodland animals in a fresh way. I really got into the spirit after sharing my monster printable Valentines and my Doxie Valentine boxes, which were featured on Cricut by the way!

After seeing other inspiring crafters make what is called a “candy hugger” as a Valentine gift, I decided to alter my original design to fit this trendy idea!

Let me share with you the supplies you will need. That favorite little fox you love, now turned hugger, is free, or you can purchase the whole woodland friends set!

Follow the step-by-step written directions below and also watch the full video tutorial for a full visual!

  1. Cut all your printable animal valentines out either with a Cricut machine in layers (or print and cut) or use the PNG images and scale to size then print on your printer. I recommend printing on cardstock in a similar color to the animal’s arms rather then white so it matches when folding the hugger’s arms over the candy.
  2. If using a cutting machine, cut all layers out in the suggested colors you see with the on screen design.
  3. Layer the designs in sequential order.
  4. Tape down a piece of candy or lolly pop over the animal hugger’s center belly.
  5. Fold the arms over the candy and secure with glue.
  6. Enjoy your adorable printable animal valentines!

Note: If you used a printer you would just print out on cardstock, (use a similar color to the animal’s body) cut with scissors, add candy and fold the arms over!
