Absolutely, add your own message on the back of the crayon holder, but the actual files cannot be altered! These printables come in a variety of designs, from cute animals to heartfelt messages. Choose the design that speaks to you and print as many copies as you need.

What type of paper should I use?

For best results, use a sturdy cardstock paper. This will ensure that the valentines hold up well and can be easily colored. White is the best color, but other light colored card stock will work better than regular paper.
