As I’m writing this post, I’m literally watching my 8 year old daughter finish off one of those giant metal holiday tins of popcorn… you know the ones with butter, cheddar, and caramel flavors all separated with cardboard dividers?
So, I guess I’m on the right track with these popcorn Valentines. What child doesn’t like popcorn?
And teachers, too! These Valentine popcorn printables are great for “grown up” Valentines for teachers, front office workers, and bus drivers. So you can give everyone a nice Valentines surprise without breaking the bank.

Supplies for Microwave Popcorn Valentines
- Microwave Popcorn – You can use full sized bags or individual bags of popcorn.
- White paper or card stock and access to a color printer
- Scissors or paper trimmer – I prefer to use a paper trimmer because it’s much faster, and your cuts will be nice and straight.

How to Make Popcorn Valentines for Kids to Pass Out
These cute Valentines couldn’t be easier to make! Here’s how to do it:
Print out valentines on an 8.5×11 sheet of paper or card stock.
Cut the valentines out on the sides only. Leave the top and bottom margins (as shown in the photo above) because that’s where you’ll tape them together to form a popcorn “sleeve”.
Place the valentine face down, and put a bag of microwave popcorn in the center.
Fold the top and bottom of the valentine toward the center of the popcorn bag, and tape together.
