Large printable heart shapes
First, here’s an extra large heart template printable!
This heart shape is a huge 10″ tall and takes 2 sheets of paper. Print the template twice and cut each out. Flip one pattern piece so the printing faces away from you. Hold the pieces up to a window so you can easily align the two parts of the pattern and tape them together. Voila, huge heart template!
The next heart is the largest heart shape that fits on a single page. It’s perfect for larger craft projects, like making “stained glass” decorations for your windows or for creating handmade Valentines.

Medium printable heart outlines
These rounded heart within a heart shapes are so cute! They remind me of thumbprint cookies. Each one measures 4″ across.
The medium heart shapes are perfect for crafting projects like making a heart bee or a four leaf clover! Pick from a taller, narrower heart or a classic wide heart shape.
Red heart templates
All out of red paper? No problem! Just print these medium red heart templates and cut them out!
Small hearts to print out
You can use these small heart templates in a variety of ways. You don’t even have to cut them out! You can use them as coloring pages, for example, or for color recognition practice for your children or students. Have them color each heart a different shade or count and number each one.
Cutting a lot of small hearts by hand is very tedious, so consider getting a heart shaped hole punch if you need a bunch of little heart shapes!
- Punches crisp, precise shapes
- Perfect for card making, scrapbooking and any paper craft
- Punch locks for compact stacking and storage
Heart writing paper printable
This heart writing paper printable is perfect for Valentine’s Day writing activities for your little ones! The lines are spaced .4″ apart so there’s plenty of room for little hands who are still working on their letters.

This one is a heart & arrow valentine. Cut out the heart and arrow, then cut slits in the heart for the arrow! You can use this as a pattern or just color the print out.

Cut out the heart shape, then fold the left side towards the center along the dashed line and the right side towards the center (also along the dashed line). Fold along the dashed line from the bottom down, then finish the envelope by folding along the bottom line up! Seal it in place with a sticker or some cute washi tape.
And two smaller heart envelopes:
