VALENTINE MINI HEART CARDS
Last week I featured these cards, along with some other easy Valentine’s Day craft projects, and today I am sharing how to make them.
If you missed last week’s easy and quick Valentine’s Day projects, which included these adorable butterfly Smarties, you can see all the projects – HERE
Today’s project for the Valentine cards are perfect for making with the kids for a classroom card exchange since they are mini size and will fit in the kid’s card boxes. They are also fun to decorate with embellishments and stickers or stamp Valentine sentiments on the mini cards.
All that is needed for your supplies is cardstock paper in your choice of colors, red and pink of course for Valentine’s Day, a die cutting machine (Sizzix Big Shot or the Cricut Cuddlebug are the two I use) and the metal die for cutting these designs is We R Memory Keepers Quickutz Mini Valentine Cookie Cutter Die available – HERE
The set comes as two dies and the mini rectangular square die can be cut in white cardstock or light pink for your card inserts.
First cut all your cards and envelopes and decorated your cards, you could also purchase store bought mini Valentine’s cards and slip them inside, if you don’t want to hand make your cards.
Next you will want to cut all your heart envelopes and then you are ready to assemble.
Once your mini cards are placed in the middle of your cut envelopes, simply fold the two hearts together in the center (the die even perforates your fold lines for you) and lock your hearts together with the pre-cut slits.
Next you can decorate your outside envelopes with even more and bigger hearts layered over your smaller hearts and cut down the middle for opening, like this –
These can also be placed on top of Valentine gift boxes –
So there you have it, easy Valentine cards to make with the kids.
