Go the extra mile this year and impress your special someone with a personalized Valentine’s Day DIY card.
Roses are red, violets are blue, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and we’ve got a creative gift idea just for you! Skip the premade, generic Valentine’s Day card this year and make your own personalized card using your favorite photo. This gift idea is as simple as folding, cutting and gluing. And let’s not forget to mention that it’s super affordable! Make Valentine’s Day even more memorable this year with this oh-so special DIY card!
2 pieces of construction paper or cardstock paper, color and size of your choice (both should be the same size)
Glue or double sided tape
4×6 print or smaller
Fold both pieces of construction/cardstock papers in half.
Open the construction paper that you will use for the card and lay it flat onto a work surface that you can cut on. Using the X-Acto knife, cut out a heart on the right side of the card. The size of the heart will depend on the size of the print. It will have to be big enough to see more than half of the print.
Turn the card front side up so that the half heart opens on the left.
Apply double sided tape or glue onto the left side of the print. Insert your print into the middle bind of the card (where the half heart is). You want to be able to see it through the opening of the heart.
Using the second sheet of construction/cardstock paper, cut it in half. Tape or glue one half of the construction paper to the back of the print. The point of this is to cover up the back of the image.
From here, your card is complete! You can take it a step further by adding some Valentine’s Day themed stickers, use scrapbook paper to decorate it, or write a love letter to your sweetheart. The possibilities are endless!
