Crayon Holder Valentine – Free SVG + Silhouette File

The crayon holder valentine is a popular printable valentine across Facebook craft groups. Cricut Design space has a file that has Cricut users flocking to download and get crafting. 

Gifting classmates with a Valentine coloring card is a unique option for Valentine’s Day. While there are some great store bought Valentines kids can give, there is something special about giving a fun valentine that other kids won’t be passing out in your child’s class.

This design is an easy one for first time suers because it doesn’t make any intricate cuts and you don’t need Cricut Access or anything other than the basic Silhouette Studio program.

Which Machine will the Files Work With?

You can use a Silhouette machine or a Cricut machine to create these files. This includes: Silhouette Cameo, Silhouette Portrait, Cricut Maker and any of the Cricut Explore machines.

You cannot use a Cricut Joy because the file is too large in size.

While I have always been a Silhouette girl , I have a Cricut machine as well so that I can see the other popular machine all of my fabulous readers are using (see my comparison of the Silhouette vs. the Cricut here).

It came in extra handy this time because the files didn’t transfer well from one machine to the other. So if you are using a Cricut, make sure to follow the directions specific to the Cricut.

Crayon Holder Valentine Designs

Instead of just 1 design, I have provided you with 4 different crayon valentine designs! You can choose to use all four, just one, or two, or three! You can pick whichever design would make your little one happy!

What’s included?

  • Silhouette files
  • Cricut files – free SVG files & JPG files
  • Blank files to make your own
  • JPG files to hand cut (you could use an exacto knife to cut the files by hand)

What are the Designs

  • Sloth design
  • Unicorn design
  • Alligator design
  • Monster truck design
  • Blank design

When I designed the files, I tried to provide a variety of current themes. But, I definitely had my boys on my mind. One has an alligator for his school mascot and the other one is monster truck obsessed.

Make your Own Design

In addition to the included designs, you can create your own! Just use the crayon holder base (Silhouette or SVG file) and add your own pictures and text layers.

You can use it to create birthday party favors, additional Valentine coloring cards, classroom party favors, and more.

What Size Crayons are these for?

  • Standard crayons
  • OR Large Crayons (using the Large crayon file or enlarging the Cricut file)

You have two options that you can use. When I originally designed it, I created a file that worked with either size but I found the regular crayons kept slipping out.

So now, I have two files for my Silhouette users. One is for standard crayons and the second one is for larger crayons. If you are using a Cricut, you can enlarge the file to make it fit a larger crayon (just make sure the diameter of the circles are slightly larger than the diameter of your crayon).

How to Make the Crayon Holder Valentines for Silhouette

Thanks to the Silhouette Cutting machine, these valentines couldn’t be easier! You have just a few steps to make them.

  1. Download the files (scroll down to the bottom of the page where it says Click to Download).
  2. Open the files in Silhouette Studio.
  3. Don’t worry – the lines for around the Valentine’s and to hold the crayons are may look red but when you print the color won’t appear.
  4. Make sure to turn on registration marks if they aren’t on already. 
  5. Print the page on heavy cardstock.
  6. Send the file to cut.
  7. Use the cardstock setting (adjust as needed based on your machine).
  8. Use the Print & Cut feature to cut out the design.
  9. Fill out the To and From (or have our child fill it out). 
  10. Insert 2 crayons into the crayon tabs.

How to Make the Crayon Holder Valentines for Cricut Users

With some tweaking, I was able to get these to work with Cricut Design Space, too! It just takes a couple of extra steps.

Watch this video for how to learn to do it.

mine downloaded without the cut marks for the crayon insert. :(

They should be there! They just aren't in color because I don't want them printing in color. Instead, when you send the file to cut, you should be able to see the lines are in fact there. This will probably be too late unfortunately but in the future if you need anything, message me at [email protected] I can help!

My cricut wont seem to let me print this on paper other than white paper. Is this a cricut thing do you know?


Friday 17th of February 2023

Oh that is so strange. I am not sure! Maybe the SVG is set to white on the inner portion? The images are JPGs and have a white background so if you added one of them, maybe that is the issue?
