Let our Love Fly
with this

Valentine Pencil Love Arrow Tutorial!



The end of the arrow is called the fletching
and you get 10 of those little darlings 
in 6 different designs on my FREE PRINTABLE.
You can grab that link at the end of this post.

We'll use just one cute little fletching in the photos 
below to illustrate this tutorial. 
Just follow these instructions to

make your own Pencil Love Arrows: 


Once you've printed these cuties, 
just flip the page over to the non-printed side
and run a couple of lines of crafter's tape.

Hint: Look for my tip at the end of this post
for making this go FAST! 

Notice that half of the band looks like the fletching
and half looks like a square block of design.
That is precisely where you'll want to fold the fletching in half, design side out, glue side in.

In the illustration, you see a dotted fold line
for the sake of clarity. 
Your printable will not have a fold line. 
Use the bottom of the large white triangle
as your fold guide.

Once folded, just press and smooth
to make sure the two sides adhere well.


Folded in half, your fletching looks like 
illustration #3.
Now just cut out along the white edge.

If you don't get it precise, you may have 
a little white showing. But that's why 
the other side of the fletching is just solid design: 
that side will be perfect!

Now, simply wrap the bottom band around
the end of your pencil and use a little tape
to adhere in place.

Your finished Pencil Love Arrows
will look like this:

Adorable!!


Oh: and here's my tip for making this project
super quick!

On your printable, you will see
6 fletchings lined up in a pretty little row, 
with an additional four at the bottom of the page. 

After you print, make one cut with your paper cutter to separate these two halves of the printable.

Run the lines of adhesive tape or glue as instructed but along the back side of all 6 designs at once.
Now, because they're all lined up for you, just 
fold the entire line of 6 fletchings as instructed.
Press together and smooth.  
NOW you're ready to cut out the individual cuties.
