RACE CAR VALENTINE’S DAY CARDS FREE PRINTABLE￼
These race car printable Valentine’s Day cards are FREE to download and just what the school party needs this February! Alll you need to do with these non-candy Valentine’s is add a toy car for the perfect Valentine to share with classmates!
Playing with toy cars really takes me back to growing up. My little brother was addicated to toy cars. We found them in sofa cushions, on the floor, in his bed, in the bath tub. Talk about a fan! We knew he would grow up to love working on cars, and sure enough he does! Even though my brother is in his 30s now and my son is no longer having classroom parties, I’m sure both of them would’ve loved a non-candy valentine like this.
These toy race car valentines bring a unique spin to the class party and are affordable to make! You don’t even need to buy name brand cars, grab some from the Dollar Tree or toy section of your favorite store to add to the card. These valentine day printable cards will really bring out the crafter in you! For all my parents who love a good party, these take it up a notch and will have all the parents calling you wondering how they can tap into your creativity for their next events!
These valentine day cards aren’t your average race car valentines. You’ll get to crafting and take it up a notch by adding the toy car inside a car box instead of just gluing or taping it onto the paper. I’m telling you, the kids are going to wheely feel loved with these cheesy lines (lol!).
HOW TO ASSEMBLE RACE CAR VALENTINE’S DAY CARDS PARTY FAVOR
To put together your Valentine’s Day cards you will need a few items:
- Free Printable
- Color Printer
- Glossy Cardstock (I recommend Pretty, Party, and Crafty paper but a nice white cardstock will also work)
- Cutting Machine or Scissors (I used my Cricut to cut out the PNG but a PDF is also included if you’d like to cut by hand)
- Toy Cars
- Acetate Box to hold cars or Washi Tape to hold down the cars (I used Acetate Boxes but a good Washi Tape over the cars will hold them on the paper without ripping it)
- Scor Tape – Double-Sided Tape (if using the acetate boxes)
- Tape Runner
For this printable, you can download it for free here. Once you download you will receive the PNG file and a PDF file. What a win – this free printable works whether you like to cut by hand or use a cutting machine. The PNG is best for uploading into your cutting machine. You will use the print then cut feature. If cutting by hand, use the PDF and simply cut out the shape. Just as a heads-up if you are cutting by hand or using a cutting machine, there is only Valentine per 8.5×11 page. So make sure you have one sheet of paper per person at the Valentine’s Day party.
Once you have the Valentine’s cut out, you will have two pieces (front and back of card). I used my print then cut feature on the Cricut to save time. Be sure to size your file to 8.98×6.68 before you cut the file. Next, you will glue the front and back of the cards together. I used my tape runner but use what you have. Once glued together, assemble the acetate box. Do not close the box. Put the car inside the box and close the box up. Place the double sided tape on the box and adhere the box onto the cards. BAM! You’re finished! There’s even a To and From section that you or your kiddos can add names for when it comes time to passing them out.
I hope you WHEELY love these cards and they made your holiday a bit easier. I can’t wait to see how they come out. Be sure to tag me on social media if you make them. Happy Valentine’s Day!

APPLESAUCE CUP VALENTINES DAY FREE PRINTABLE
Busy parent? Forgot that Valentine’s Day comes just as soon as the New Year hits? Don’t worry! This Valentine’s Day applesauce cup free printable digital file will save your day (or late night!).
These cute valentine’s day cards provide non-candy valentine which is a great alternative to traditional candy valentines. Who doesn’t love a healthier option?! A fun snack that’s great for elementary age kids or preschoolers – keep reading so you can be head of the class.
FREE PRINTABLE APPLESAUCE CUP VALENTINES DAY LABELS
To get ready for the Valentine’s Day party you will need to download the free printable PDF file that I created for you and the small cans/containers of apple sauce that come in a multipack. Scroll down and enter your email address to grab your file.
There are six applesauce containers labels per sheet. Three labels that say “You’re the apple of my eye” and three other labels that say “You’re awesome sauce”. The six applesauce cup labels will adhere best with sticker paper — but I’ll get to that! Please note, you will need at least Adobe Reader on your computer to view these printable tags.
You may be running behind so don’t worry, this is a smooth and quick project. Enter your email in the form below and download the file to your computer. Once you have the instant download downloaded, unzipped, and saved to your computer, you will need to print out the download on your home printer or at a print shop/copy shop. This download is a great idea if you have a lot of kids to treat. Mass production! YAYYY…
Here’s a list of the supplies you’ll need:
- Applesauce Cups – I grabbed the Good & Gather from Target, but any 4oz cups will work. I also got cinnamon and ate some while doing this so…watch yourself! AND don’t judge me haha
- Sticker Paper, White Cardstock, or White Copy Paper
- Hot Glue Gun or Adhesive of Choice (if not using sticker paper)
- Printer of your choice – I recommend the Epson Eco Tanks
HOW TO ASSEMBLE VALENTINE’S DAY APPLESAUCE CUPS LABELS
I like to print on white cardstock or sticker paper, but if you only have white copy paper (printer paper), that’s just fine. We will make these homemade valentines work so your kids will still think you’re the Pinterest mom we all want to be. I also included a cut file you can upload into your cutting machine.
Once you print the printable files, you can cut the labels out. To cut the cute cards, I use my paper craft scissors, craft knife, or a 3in circle punch. Use what you have on hand to keep it easy on yourself for this valentine idea. As a reminder, the white card stock will be thicker than the copy paper.
Once each of the free printables are cut out, you can glue the printable cards to the top of the applesauce cups. If you used sticker paper, you will not need glue but if you need an adhesive – white glue, tape runner, double-sided tape, glue dots, or kraft glue will work. A little bit of glue/adhesive will go a long way. I used my glue gun and glued around the circle edge of the label.
Here’s a tip – place your adhesive only on the edge of the circle, it will stick better!
Again, use what you have on hand. This is a very affordable, non-candy, healthy valentine for you to get done quickly.
Complete as many applesauce cups you need. This printable is for personal use, but use it as many times as necessary! Most of us parents have more than six kids to a classroom for the Valentine’s Day Party. No party in the classroom? Make it a party for your kid and pop one into their school lunch on Valentine’s Day.
A great way to make this a fun activity with your kids is to have them write their name on the From line. Adding in the kids name makes this a fun editable kids valentine template for your family.
If you don’t have any applesauce cups on hand, an alternative is to make these into adorable tags with a hole punch. Take some baker’s twine and tie them around an apple sauce pouches, apple juice, or an actual apple for a healthy snack.
Thank you for reading and grabbing your free printable! I hope you and your kids love it! Let me know your thoughts below.
Sending lots of love to you this holiday.
-With Love, Alicia Desiree

I recommend using an inkjet printer you have at home. I love the Epson ECO-TANK printer series for party favor printables. These printers are great on ink and you can print glossy paper without it getting stuck!
Speaking of paper – I definitely recommend you use glossy inkjet paper for ALL your party favor printables. The paper really stands out and has that shine that you find when you see candy wrappers in the store! I like a few different papers: Amazon, Pretty, Party, and Crafty, and JazznJay Creations.
Once you print your labels and wrappers, the only other thing you’ll need is glue. You can use hot glue, art glitter glue, double sided tape, white glue – anything you have on hand and/or can afford!
