St. Valentine's Day Cards

  • colored paper
  • decorations
  • scissors
  • glue

Directions to make Valentine's Day Cards

  1. Fold the card paper in half to make the card.
  2. Cut out the patterns for hearts of different sizes. Trace the patterns on to the colored paper and cut out the decorations. Or make your own sizes and shapes by folding a piece of colored paper in half, and drawing half a heart along the fold line. Cut out.
  3. Glue the decorations on your card. Try layering the different materials (paper hearts, sequins, and foam hearts).
  4. To finish the card, choose a Valentine verse or make up your own.

To make a Pop-up Heart for your Valentine Card

  • Cut a piece of colored paper smaller than your card. Fold it in half. Open your card and hold the piece of paper against the inside to check for size. There should be an even white border all around your card.
  • Re-fold the colored paper and trace a heart on the fold line. Be sure to leave a section where you won’t cut.
  • Cut a short slit on side of your cutting line. Reverse the fold on the center of the heart and crease across the end of the slit. As you fold the paper, the heart will fold down and may show over the edge of the folded color paper. Open the paper and watch the heart pop out.
  • Glue the paper into the card centered on the fold line. Do not put any glue on the heart.


  • children can color with markers or add stickers to the Valentine's Cards.
  • Add a Heart Chain to the Valentines Card.
  • Use a small heart shaped punch to create a ring of hearts.
  • Use fancy scissors when cutting out the hearts.
