DIY Valentine cards tutorial and free template
How to make it:
Print out (from the free template) the valentine card messages – page 2
Fold your A4 sheet in half and cut. Fold each half in half to make the cards.
Print the heart templates – page 3 on the pdf file – cut out and use as is or to make it easier to trace, glue to an old cereal box you (I always do this, it’s budget friendly and a great way to recycle!)
Trace the big heart onto and old map and cut out. If you don’t have an old map, I’ve scanned mined and included on the FREE pdf file. It’s on page 4. Just print it.
Glue the map heart onto cardboard, or use an old cereal box.
Glue the cotton pad onto the back of the map heart.
Glue the heart onto the card. Isn’t it cute? The cotton pad makes it stand out and create a nice shadow around the heart.
For the other card:
Print the paper patterns on page 5 or use other decorative papers you like. Using the small heart template trace it onto the patterned papers and cut out.
Glue the first heart to the valentine card.
Place the other hearts on top and sew a straight line right on the middle of the hearts to join them. You can sew by hand if you prefer.
Trim the excess thread and fold the hearts slightly so all the layers are visible.
