Colorful corrugated paper gives these heart-shape pockets pretty texture. Patterned paper straws make easy arrows.

Trace around a 5-inch heart-shape cookie cutter on corrugated paper and cut out. Fold the heart on a slight diagonal and punch a hole about 1/2 inch from the fold. When you unfold it, there should be two diagonal holes. Using pinking shears, cut another heart from corrugated paper in a contrasting color, making 1/4 inch larger on all sides.

Apply crafts tape along the small heart’s sides (not the top), the center it on the large heart and attach. Cut out two heads and two tails on cardstock with the pattern, then attach tail pieces to paper straw using crafts tape and fringe the tail. Thread a straw through the holes of the top heart and attach an arrowhead to the straw with crafts tape. Fill the heart with small candies, then seal the top with glue dots.
