Looking for something sweet to make a loved one for Valentine’s Day? Taken or single, follow our step-by-step DIY to make the cutest V-Day card for your best girlfriend or your special guy!
What you’ll need:
• 3 sheets of craft paper (different colors or shades)
• Draw and cut out 2 hearts to use; one larger, one smaller that fit on card
• Envelope, size of your choice (optional)
STEP 1: If using an envelope, measure and trace paper to be slightly smaller than two lengths of the envelope, so card can slide in easily. Cut the two sheets you want to be the first and second layer of card.
STEP 2: Fold edges to meet in the center and crease.
STEP 3: Trace the third sheet of paper for the layer inside the card.
It is easiest to close the card and trace the outer edge as a pattern. Cut and tape the back of the sheet; flip over, press and center on second layer.
STEP 4: Using the larger heart shape, trace and cut the shape out of the outer layer.
STEP 5: Using the smaller heart shape, trace and cut the shape out of the second layer.
STEP 6: Tape the back of second layer (orange) and nestle into outer layer (pink). Fold together and finish with a ribbon.
