DIY Valentine's Day Cards

My little mama wanted to make some special Valentine's Day cards for her new classmates this year.  We came up with a super fun tutorial, so easy a 9-year-old could (and did!) follow!

Here are the materials we used:
  • Plain white card stock
  • Colorful patterned card stock
  • Funky edge scrapbook scissors
  • Sewing machine
  • LOVE stamp
  • Pink stamp pad
  • Aqua colored pen/marker

Step 1: Trace a heart shape on the back of the patterned card stock
Step 2: Cut out the heart using the funky edge scrapbook scissors

It should look like this!
Step 3: Sew (or have Mom sew) along the edge of the heart
to the piece of white card stock.
Step 4:  Add a fun stamp to the card.
Step 5: Add your friend's name on top and your name along the bottom.

Easy peasy and too cute for words!

  4. DIY crafts and cards are my favorite in every particular occasion especially Valenitne's day as it shows how much important a recipient is to exert effort to make them happy. With romantic Valentines day messages written on them, these cards would surely be the best gift ever!
