We got the (pin)spiration here and went with a little different wording. Ours are a little simpler looking, but I think that's definitely appropriate give it's for H's kindergarten class. I cut the hearts and wrote the phrase and she helped me put temporary glue dots to attach the mazes and wrote her classmates names on the back and signed her name. Below are the links to the supplies we used.
Cardstock (normally I wouldn't order this, but I my cardstock stash is dwindling)
I didn't take any pictures, but the process I used is below.
1. Trace maze on cardstock and then give it a border of about an inch. Cut and use as template. We needed 25 valentines so I cut 30 for leftovers.
2. Write cute 'maze' phrase.
3. Adhere glue dot to back of heart and stick (we used two in the middle, one on top half and one on bottom half to survive the trip in her backpack).
4. If you don't address them (which I didn't intend to, except that the teacher sent home the list of names so we COULD, I did), then you are done.
5. If not, write solid lines on the back for TO: and FROM: then you can let your kidlets write out their classmates names and then sign their own name on the bottom.
Our supplies cost about $20, but we have enough supplies to last two years of valentines. So next year we'll do something new for first grade and come back to these in second grade.

they survive the journey in H's backpack.
