Start by downloading and printing the card of your choice on cardstock.

Play with heart shapes, sizes, and paint colors to add some fun variety to your little card.

Once your card is dry, fill the inside with your personalized Valentine’s message and deliver to your loved ones! They’re sure to appreciate the effort you put into hand making them a card.

Valentine’s Day Card #2

This card takes things to a whole other dimension – no really! Add a little something extra to your DIY Valentine’s Day Cards this year by going 3D. This subtle heart pop is the perfect, low-key addition to add to your pile of outgoing love notes.

  • White paper or cardstock
  • Pencil
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors
  • Template – download here

Start by tracing and cutting around the template on a piece of paper – this piece will be the outside of your card. Cut a piece of white or other light colored paper in a slightly smaller rectangle and glue it to the inside of your card where you will write.

Next, out the heart section of your template and trace onto a contrasting piece of paper. Cut the heart out and glue on the inside of the card along the heart shape. Now you’re ready for folding!

First, fold the entire card down the middle. Then, take the bottom right corner and bring it up towards the heart and fold when you have the crease lined up with the edge of the heart. Repeat on the other side. To form your 3D shape, simply push the back of the heart forwards until it pops into place!
