Valentine’s Day is coming up, which means we’ve got some new animal candy huggers for you! This adorable set includes a crocodile, sloth, toucan, jaguar, and an alpaca. All made from paper, of course.

You can cut these designs out with a cutting machine using the SVG file below. Or you can print the PDF and cut these cuties by hand. We used cardstock for this DIY craft and chose three different shades of pink. But feel free to use whatever paper and colors you like best! Everything we used is linked below if you want to check it out.

Toucans and Jaguars and Sloths, Oh My!

These animal candy huggers would be fun to give to your coworkers. Or your kids can make them for their friends. Just cut the pattern, glue the arms (or wings), and add a piece of candy or chocolate.

If you love this holiday, take a peek at our other Valentine’s Day projects on the site. We’ve got décor, cards, plants, and more for you to DIY. Also, if you have any suggestions for what we should make next, just comment below. Happy crafting! ~ Lia and team
