PRINTABLE HANGING SLOTH LOLLIPOP VALENTINE
WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE SLOTH VALENTINES
These are easy and inexpensive DIY valentine cards, which is always a win in my book. I do recommend using heavier-weight paper, rather than regular copy paper so that the cards are sturdy enough to hold the suckers.

HOW TO MAKE THE VALENTINES
Each printed sheet will make six valentines. Use a paper trimmer or scissors to separate the cards.
Use a pair of scissors or a craft knife to cut four slits into the card near the sloth’s hands. Check out the diagram above to see where the slits should be cut.
I also tried using a hole punch to create circular openings instead of slits (see the blue sloth card below). While it made it easier to thread the lollipop stick through the card, I didn’t like having big visible holes in the final card.
Thread the stick of the lollipop through the slits so that it looks like the sloth is hanging from the lollipop.
Finally, secure the stick to the back of the card with a piece of tape. Any tape will work, but I obviously had to use my adorable sloth washi tape. You can leave the valentines as they are or you can add a special message to the back of each card. These would make sweet invitations to a sloth birthday party too!
