Valentine’s Day is tomorrow and this holiday is one of the best ones to give homemade, heartfelt gifts! Let your special someone know how much you care about them with a DIY card this year! Below are three options to either copy or to inspire your creativity!
Decorative or Construction Paper

Make a small heart
Choose a decorative paper
Fold in half
On the crease side, draw half of a heart

Paste the heart on the front of the card on the right side, slightly above the middle of the card.
Paste the rectangle of decorative paper on the left inside cover of the card.
On the front, write the word love in order to connect from the bottom of the card up to the point of the heart.
On the right inside cover of the card, write a special message to your loved one!
