Making your own Valentine’s Day cards can seem daunting, especially after scouring Pinterest and the local card shops. Let’s face it…not all of us are professional crafters!

However, I am pleased to let you know, it’s not as hard as it seems- it will even be a fun project for you and your kiddos to do together!

Not only is making your own cards a fun family project, the recipient of your card will feel very special knowing how much thought and energy you put into making them a special Valentine’s Day card.

You will see how I got my inspiration for these cards by checking out Jessie’s Party Stop’s Pinterest board which is filled with DIY Valentine’s cards to be inspired by.

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

First, you are going to need a few things to get started which you can purchase at your local craft store or find around the house.

Materials

  • Valentine craft paper (I bought Martha Stewart’s Valentine craft paper from Amazon.)

  • Cotton string or raffia

  • Scissors

  • Pen razor

  • Glue stick

  • Ruler

  • A variety of plain colored blank cards (You can find them at Amazon)

Step 2: Create your cards

  • Choose a color card you want from your selection of blank cards

  • Then choose a pattern or hearts you would like to cut out

  • Simply arrange and rearrange them, playing with patterns and textures until you are pleased with the composition and design 

Step 3: Glue your design onto the card

When you are happy with your composition/design, take your glue stick and carefully glue the individual pieces down and let dry.

Add in any last details like sayings, poems or others and viola!

I love Valentines poems and messages and felt compelled to put a Pinterest board together of all the ones I could find. You can find it at Jessie’s Party Stop’s Pinterest Board, Valentine’s Quotes

Enjoy spreading the love on Valentine’s Day with your one-of-a-kind Valentine’s Day cards!
