Card Onevalentines1_blog02

You will need…

  • A blank card
  • Confetti or make your own
  • Cellophane plastic pocket (like the ones cards come in)
  • Pink pen
  • Craft knife

First you need a circle template. Either find something round to draw around, or google ‘circle shape’ to find one you can print out, cut out the circle, and use this as a template to draw around on your card. Next, using your scalpel, cut out the circle. Fill your plastic pocket with confetti and tape it to the inside cover of the card. Cover the taped area by gluing on another piece of card. Hand-write a loving message in pink pen.

You will need…

  • Printer card
  • Our free printable (at the bottom of this post!)
  • A disposable wooden spoon
  • Washi tape
  • Pink pen
  • Our printable cake vouchers (optional)

Print out our card printable. You will need to cut and fold the card. Draw a mini heart on the handle of your spoon and simply tape it to the front of your card. Enclose cake vouchers if you like. Then bake your loved one something delicious, or take them out for a special cake date!


Card Threevalentines3_blog07

You will need…

  • A blank card
  • Mini fake flowers (you will find these at most haberdasheries)
  • Needle and thread

Gather a small bunch of the fake flowers together, and simply stitch them onto the front of your card. You can cover the stitches on the inside cover with another piece of card if you wish.

You will need…

  • Printer card
  • Our free printable (at the bottom of the post!)
  • Heart stickers or mini card hearts (I got mine on Etsy)
  • Glue (if using card hearts)

Print our free printable onto card, cut and fold. Google ‘heart shape’ and print off an image of a heart shape to the correct size for your card. Use this heart shaped template to lightly draw around in pencil. Using either your heart stickers or card hearts, fill the outline of the heart with these. Once finished, use an end of pencil eraser to remove the pencil lines.
