Valentine DIY: "Nuts About You" Circus Peanut Valentines {free printable}

An old-time candy
(circa 1800)
get's a new twist
for Valentine's Day!

I think the kids will go "nuts" for these, don't you?


Circus Peanut Valentines

  • Circus Peanut Candy (4 per Valentine)
  • Free printable Valentine inserts (download HERE)
  • Pretzel bags (sold in the cake/candy section of most craft stores)
  • String/twine

To assemble:  Download the sheet of valentine card inserts.  You can print directly on to the blank side of a piece of patterned scrapbook paper for an easy double-sided look.  Or, cut 4.5 x 1.75 strips from patterned scrapbook paper; then, print the inserts on regular printer paper.  Trim, then insert both pieces into the bag, back-to-back.  I found that the peanuts were easiest to place once the paper had already been inserted and centered inside the bag.  Once peanuts are in place, tie off ends of bag with string or twine.


  1. Ok these are super cute Jenn! I have had circus peanuts in years but now I'm going to have to hunt some up! Such a cute Valentine's idea!

  2. How adorable! I'm going to print these for our babies in the church nursery...thank you!

  3. Oh Jenn these are DARLING! I love Jenn touch! Pinning! xo

  4. This is absolutely precious! I think I'll make this for my guys. :)
