Free Paper Craft Printable Valentine’s Day Elephant Named Lucy

Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it! It is the all loving, card giving, candy eating day of the year, and maybe one of the craftiest times of the year. So grab a glue stick and buckle down for some fun!

First on the list of fun Valentine’s Day printables is this ADORABLE Pink Elephant named Lucy. She is a great Paper craft for the kids or the young at heart (I made a few just to give them out on Valentine’s Day). Lucy also makes a great card! Fill out a message on her Trunk, such as Happy Valentine’s Day, and give them to all your friends. These will especially be amazing at school, because they will be the most unique card there (and maybe the largest)
