When it comes to Valentines Day cards there really are some great options out there. From this “I Like you Berry much” creative idea to this Homemade Valentines Crayon Art, if you are willing to invest the time, you can send a super special extra treat your kids can be proud of.
But in our house…let’s just say mom is lame.
So I am going to teach out how to take plain old construction paper hearts, write a cute message (yes, with a basic crayon), fold and create a handmade little envelope with it. Btw, this craft project will forever be known as the “craft that Charlotte used hot pink permanent marker that bleed through the paper onto my cream table.”
How to create an Envelope with a Heart
What you need
- Construction Paper
- Double sided tape OR cute little stickers
Fold your paper in half
Cut out a big wide heart
Write loving message. For those that dont remember what “writing” is, its done with actual utensils …..not a phone.
Fold in the sides
Fold down and flip so the point of your heart is at the top
(can be done in little version or big version!)
Fold point down and secure in place
Cute, right? And hopefully you have all these materials at home to handmake some valentines.
No offense to people that want to buy 21 boxes of cereal to send to school.
