How to make original cards for Valentine’s Day

The ideas that we are going to propose are simple ideas that we can do to our partner for Valentine’s Day, from elements that are easy to get and even some, that we can Recycle.

Valentine card with a heart like balloon

To create this card you will need:

  • Cardstock of a color that we like (less red)
  • Red cardboard
  • White cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Glue

To do this card you just have to cut the cardboard the size of a gift card. Cut it out and fold it into the shape of the card.

Then you have to cortar the white cardboard, shaped like two clouds and paste them in the center of the card.

Between the clouds we draw a basket, like a balloon and on top of this, we cut out a heart of red cardboard, as if it were the balloon. Now we cut two other hearts of equal size, fold in half and glue folded and opening in the central part of the heart already pasted, so that it has a 3D effect.

Valentine card with rose petals

With the same idea we can also do valentine cards with rose petals, one of the recurring flowers on Valentine’s Day. All you have to do is cut out the cardboard and draw on this a series of flowers but you only have to draw the part of the stem.

For the flower itself you must glue pieces of rose petals, so that you can form the flower drawing on the card.

Another option if you prefer, is that of uuse dried flowers that are small and they will also serve to decorate your card.

Valentine card with Washi tape

The washi tape has become one of the most used craft items. With it you can decorate all kinds of cards and also of course, Valentine’s.

Another idea is to take a piece of cardboard or cardboard that is somewhat thicker and draw a heart in the center, then fill it with buttons.
