project {pop-up cards}

February 4th | DIY

this is a fun little valentine’s {or anytime} project and the little ones can help too!

1. you’ll need two different papers, scissors, double sided tape and a little ribbon if you want to tie the card closed. 2. fold two sheets of paper into the card size you want. 3. for the inside paper, fold the edges back towards the center {like a W} 4. draw a heart to cutout. 5. the heart will be your pop-out! 6. use double-sided table to secure the inside of the card to the edges of the outside. 7. i added a little ribbon on each side {between the two papers} so i can tie the card closed. 8. you’re all set!

happy valentine’s day!

    Cute! I think me and my 3 year old will do these for his teachers. We have to make our own cards so this is perfect. Thanks for the idea!

  2. Adorable. I’m so glad that I’m not the only one who still cherishes handmade Valentines.

    What a great project! I have a secret pal at work and this is the perfect thing for her Valentine! I think it will be fun to make them for my son’s preschool teachers too. Thanks Lisa! Our other Valentine’s Day project is heart shaped crayons. I love this holiday! Just what I need to lighten the burden of Winter!
