DIY Valentine’s Day 3-D Card (Printable)

Do you have a child who wants to make “the best Valentine’s Day card ever” and asks for your contribution?  In my house, it started early on a Saturday morning.  

 

We loved our DIY Printable Valentine's Day Cards so much, we decided to share them with you. Both templates are available to you as FREE printables.  Enjoy!  #DIY #ValentinesDay #card

 

It was five am by the living room clock and I was trapped on a coach with my 2-months old sleeping in my lap.  We all know that transferring a baby to a bed never work, so there I was having Valentine’s Day Card conversation with my 6-year old before my morning cup of tea.

 

“Mom!  What is your best idea for the best Valentine’s Day card?”

“Well, what do you want your card to look like?”

“I know what I want my card to look like.  I want to know your idea!”

It’s five am!  Too early for ideas!  Ok,   “Cut it out shaped like a heart?”

“Boring!”

“How about a card made with pink flower paper and a sweet message inside?”

“I don’t like colored paper.”

“How about a card with a red and white design and a red ribbon to open it?”

“We did it last year!”

“3-D card?”

“How does it work?”

“Print two copies of the same design.  Cut one set out and glue on top of the first page.”

“Hmm… it may work…”

 

It turned out to be a very fun project to do together.  First, we shuffled through my collection of graphics looking for just the right design, then my daughter arranged the message and picked the font.  We finished with some cutting and gluing.

 

We love the end result so much, we decided to share our cards with you.  There are two options for you: Be My Valentine card and Happy Valentine’s Day card.  Both templates are available to you as a printable for FREE.  Click HERE to get the Template (you will be automatically added to our mailing list, you can unsubscribe at any time).  I hope you have as much fun with this DIY card as we did.  

 

 DIY VALENTINE 3-D CARD

What you need

Printing paper or photo paper

Glue

Scissors

 

This is not a project to be done independently by little kids as it involves a bit of precise cutting.  But if you have a half hour to spare and welcome a sweet bonding activity with your child, this is it!

 

Instructions

1.Print one or both cards.  Any paper will do the trick, but photo paper would be ideal.  I placed the graphic part of each card (page 1 and 3) at the lower left section of the page.  This way you can make a card that opens (in case you want to write a sweet message inside).

2.Cut the flowers on supporting pages out (page 2 and 4).  We used safe kids scissors, but sharp crafting scissors would be best for this project.

I like to bend the flower in half and bend the lower edge too.  This makes it pop up more.
