Do you have a child who wants to make “the best Valentine’s Day card ever” and asks for your help? We have tried many different ideas in the past and this one turned out very cute.
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 card 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
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!
What to do
- Print one or both cards. Any paper will do the trick, but photo paper would be ideal. I placed the graphics 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 message inside).

- 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.
- Glue each flower set on top of the first page.
I like to bend the flower in half and also bend the lower edge before gluing. This makes it pop up more for that cute 3D effect.
Put it in a cute envelope for an extra dose of wow! We found yellow envelopes. Doesn’t yellow go well with pink flowers?
If you have a half hour to spare and would like to do some bonding project together, make this cute Valentine’s day card with your kids.
