With some fabric scraps, cardstock, and a few other supplies, kids can create these cute kitty Valentine cards in no time at all.

Approximate Time: About 30 minutes

Supplies:

Instructions:

Cut a piece of white cardstock that measures 4x9 inches, and fold in half.

Cut a 3 inch heart from fabric scrap for cat's face. Cut a smaller heart (about 1 inch) from coordinating fabric for cat's ears. Cut the smaller heart in half vertically.

Apply glue around back edge of large heart and place it upside-down on card. Apply glue to each half of small heart and glue underneath cat's face for ears (refer to photo).

Cut two small circles from craft foam for eyes and glue into place. Using black marker, draw cat's nose and whiskers. Write "I love you" or other personal message below cat's head.

This Valentine's Day, make your sweetheart a card with Cupid as the focus point of the card. As the symbol widely associated with love and affection, this Cupid will make sure that your message of love won't be lost!

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: one card

Supplies:

  • 11.2 x 5.5 in red cardstock
  • A6 sized ordinary white printer paper
  • 2 white heart-shaped paper doilies sized 5.2" x 5.2"
  • 2 red feathers
  • 18 pearl flat-sided rhinestone flowers
  • 12 small 3D self-adhesive foam squares
  • pair of 5 mm wiggle eyes
  • teaspoonful of sesame seeds
  • flesh colored acrylic paint
  • paintbrush
  • black and red felt-tip pens
  • standard scissors
  • pencil
  • ruler
  • clear-drying craft glue (such as Bostik Clear)

Steps:

  1. Score the red cardstock to create a card sized 5.5" x 5.5".
  2. With the fold at the top, centre and glue one of the paper doilies to the front of the card.
  3. Draw a circle with a diameter of 1.4" on the piece of white printer paper. Paint the circle with the flesh paint, allow to dry and cut it out.
  4. From the second doily cut a heart that will be Cupid's body. Unless your doily contains an imbedded heart at the bottom like the one on the doily I used, you will have to cut your own heart with a size of 2.1" x 2.1".
  5. Glue Cupid's face to the card, and the red feathers below the face to add the wings.
  6. Add the 3D foam squares to the back of the smaller heart, and then add this heart to the card.
  7. Use the rhinestone flowers to decorate Cupid's body.
  8. Use glue and sesame seeds to add Cupid's hair, and glue the wiggle eyes in place.
  9. Use the black pen to add nostrils and a mouth, and draw heart-shaped cheeks with the red pen. Whoo-hoo! Cupid is ready to spread some love!

My staff gets very little recognition. The least little bit of recognition makes them happy. We have a fabulous nursing team and every so often I like to tell them how much they are appreciated for the work they do.

This is a collection that my husband has made for me for Valentines Day for a number of years. We've been married 57 years so you can see the romance has not gone out of our marriage. A styrofoam heart reads "My heart is never heavy because you're mine". He glued hay (we are farmers) on one. It reads "Hay you! I love you!" I hope you can read some of the others.

Update: This is the 2008 addition to the collection of Valentines that I sent previously. So I'm still his Valentine! Thanks for your sweet comments.

Hang a glow stick on his car mirror if you can. Have a tape ready in the player so when he starts his car, the song "You Light Up My Life" starts playing. Write "priceless" in the card. Use the for sale column in the newspaper in the card.

Write "Dad's an old smoothie, never rough on me." Use sandpaper and silk in card.

Write "Where have you bean all my life." Glue on a dried bean.
