How to Pop It Valentines
To make these Pop It Valentines, you will need:
- Medium weight cardstock – I am using this letter size white cardstock which is perfect for printing on or for your Cricut!
- Cricut Maker or Explore Cutting Machine and your standard cutting mat. Or you can print and cut the designs out if you don’t have a cutting machine.
- Cricut pens
- Pop It Bracelets – I am using these pop it bracelets and I am very impressed by the quality and price!

Watch the full step-by-step video tutorial to learn how to add your name and use Cricut pens here:
Start by uploading the SVG file to Cricut Design Space. You will have to change all of the text to pen before cutting. To do this, select all of the layers except for the bottom card layer and change the operation from “basic cut” to “pen”. You can select multiple layers at a time by holding down shift while you select them.
Change the Pen Colors
Each element is on a different layer so that you can customize the colors of the text. I am changing the heart and word “Valentine” to pink. If you are cutting with multiple colors, you do need to change this in Cricut Design Space first so that your Cricut knows what colors to write with and where.
To change your pen colors, just click on the layer that you want to change and then click on the color fill. You will be able to select the pen and color that you are using here.
Personalize Your Pop It Valentines
If you want to add a name to the card, use the text tool and type the name. Then you will need to change the font to a writing font. Select “font” and make sure that you are on the “Cricut” tab. Then select the filters and check “writing”. This will filter so all you see are writing fonts. Cricut has a few free and paid ones. If you don’t have Cricut access, make sure to choose one of the free fonts.

Attach the Pen Layers
Before cutting your pop it Valentines, you need to attach all of the pen layers to the card base. To do this, select all of your layers and select “attach”.
Cut and Assemble the Pop It Valentines
You are now ready to cut your pop it Valentines. You can cut 4 of the Valentines on a letter sheet of paper or 6 on a 12×12 sheet. So, duplicate your card so you have 4 or 6 cards on the screen depending on the paper you are using. And then cut your pop it valentines.
Make sure to add your pen first and follow the prompts in Cricut Design Space so you know which pen to insert and when.
Once your pop it Valentines are cut out, all that’s left is to add your bracelets! Just wrap the bracelet around the card and secure it closed in the back.
