Valentines Day Handmade Cards

Materials:

  • Cardstock
  • Crayola® Glue Stick
  • Crayola® Markers
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

Instructions:

  1. Pop-Up Hearts Card
    Fold two square paper pieces in half. Take one and cut two parallel, 2-inch slits about a ½ inch apart on the right side of card. Repeat and decrease length of slits until you have 3 strips.
    Open the card and use your index finger to gently push the strips into the card.  This will form the small “steps.”
  2. Pop-Up Hearts Card (Continued)
    Close the card.  It should now have a missing notch along the fold since you’ve pushed the pop-up portion into the center of the card.
    Glue the second blank card over the card with the pop-up so you can’t see the missing notches.
    Use glue to adhere cut hearts to the front of the steps inside the card. The hearts will pop up when the card opens. Embellish card as desired with markers.
  3. Heart with Arrow Card
    Fold square paper piece in half.
    Cut heart and arrow from contrasting paper colors.
    Glue shapes to card’s top as shown. Embellish card as desired with markers.
  4. Flower Card
    Fold square paper piece in half and then half again.
    Cut 4 hearts and a small circle out of contrasting paper colors.
    Glue shapes to card’s top to form a flower as shown. Embellish card as desired with markers.
