Supplies

  • 1 Sheet Red or Pink Card Stock
  • 1/2 Sheet Red or Pink Card Stock
  • Heart Template (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Stick Glue

How to Make a Heart Pop-Up Valentines Card

Step 1Take a full sheet of card stock (red or pink) and fold in half top to bottom.  Fold again in the opposite direction so you have four equal parts.  
Step 2Unfold and then refold along the long edges.   
Step 3Along the folded edge (in just one of the sections), lightly trace a half a heart.  If you don’t have a heart-shaped cookie cutter, you can use this template to help you trace the heart.  This template has 3 different sizes of hearts.  
Step 4Starting at the top of the heart along the fold, cut along the trace stopping shortly after the curve of the heart.
Step 5Now starting along the fold and at the bottom of the heart, cut along the heart stopping about 1/2 inch from the cut above.  Now fold your heart back along the fold where it is uncut.  
Step 6Repeat this step for two more cuts of the heart, making each one smaller and bending each heart back along the folded uncut edge.   Tip:  To get a bit of a gap between each cut and to show through the second colored card stock, simply trim each cut slightly.  
Step 7Now refold your card stock into quarters ensuring the heart cutout is facing in when you fold.  To get a multi-colored look, simply slide 1/2 a sheet of different card stock behind the heart cutout and tape or glue in place.

For this Valentine card kids craft, you can write whatever message you want on the inside and outside of the card.  This is a pretty heart card and takes a bit more time than some of the others, so make this one for those really extra special people in your life.
