To make an easy heart pop-up Valentine’s Day card of your own, you will need:
- Colored Cardstock
- Small, Medium, and Large Heart Doilies
- Washi Tape (optional)
- Double-Sided Tape or Gluestick
Invite students to fold a sheet of colored cardstock in half to form a card.
If they would like, they may choose to add a washi tape border around the outer edge of the card.
Next, students can use double-sided tape or a gluestick to attach a large doily to the front of the Valentine card.
With a bit more double-sided tape or a gluestick, students can add a medium heart doily on top of the large doily.
Next, have the students fold two small doilies in half, as shown:
Add double-sided tape or glue to one half of the small doily and place it as shown:
Repeat this step for the last doily to form the pop-up heart.
Lastly, invite the students to use crayons to add a personalized message to their handmade Valentine’s Day card.
Aren’t they beautiful? Students will be so happy and proud to give their handmade Valentine creations to someone special!
