You Can Make a Valentine's Heart Card With Your Kids

Most of us are thrilled to receive a homemade card on Valentine's Day, and you can find the step by step instructions, with pictures, right here. Your kids will be so proud of the cards they make themselves. This card making project is easy and fun!

Before you begin make sure you read the directions and gather all the supplies you need.

Here is a list of the materials you will need:

Step 1: Gather all the materials needed to make your card:

  • Red and yellow cardstock
  • Pink, orange, green and beige cardboard or construction paper
  • Ruler
  • Cutter
  • Pencil
  • White craft glue
  • Different color markers
  • Pattern paper

Gather Your Supplies

I like to gather all my supplies before I begin my crafting. It's so much easier to have everything ready to use and near by than it is to have to stop to go and get one of the items you need to complete your project. So...the first thing I suggest to you is to get all the materials and tools you need to complete your craft before you begin making it. Have fun!

Step 2

Step 2: Draw 2 rectangular shapes but give them a curved top - look at the picture up above. When these two pieces are put together with one on top of the other, they will form a heart. This is your pattern.

Step 3

Step 3: Cut out the pattern

Step 4

Step 4: Now use your pattern to cut out one curved rectangle out of the pink construction paper and glue it onto the red piece of cardboard.

Step 5

Step 5

Step 5: Next use the pattern to cut the same shape out of the orange construction paper and glue it onto the yellow cardboard.

Step 6

Step 6

Step 6: Cut the red cardboard a little bigger than the pink paper shape that is glued onto it. There should be a red border framing the pink shape so cut it slowly and carefully. Look at the pictures to see what your card should look like. Now cut the yellow cardboard with the red shape on it the same way.

Step 7

Step 7

Step 7: Cut a strip of green construction paper based on the width of the curved rectangle cardboards.

Step 8

Step 8

Step 8: Fold the green strip in a cascading manner using the width of the cardboard to measure it. Look at the picture to see exactly how it should look and what you should be doing.

Step 9

Step 9

Step 9: Cut another strip from the beige paper but make it about 1 centimeter thinner than the green paper.

Step 10

Step 10

Step 10: Fold this beige paper in a cascading manner like the green one. Take note that the fold should be the same as the width of the curved rectangle cardboard.

Step 11

Step 11

Step 11: Center the beige paper on the green one and then glue the beige paper onto the green paper.

Step 12

Step 12

Step 12: Glue the cascading strip of paper in the middle of the two cardboards. The two boards should be aligned as shown in the picture. Together these two pieces of cardboard will form a heart then they are closed.

Step 13

Step 13

Step 13: Write your own personal message on the cover and on the inside of the cascading paper. Let someone know how much they mean to you with a loving Valentine's Day message, or give someone a laugh with a funny message.
