A funky handmade Valentine's card for the young-at-heart, an easy craft for children.

Approximate Time: 20 minutes

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Fold the 8.2 inches x 5.5 inches cream-colored cardboard crosswise in half to create a card 5.5 inches x 4.1 inches ~ use the ruler to make the fold neat and smooth.
  2. Use the heart-shaped cookie cutter to trace a heart onto the red riffled cardboard and then cut it out.

  4. From the pipe cleaner, cut two 1.5 inch arms and two 2 inch legs.
  5. From the black felt, cut two hands and two feet, as well as a small mouth.
  6. Bend each arm 0.3 inches from the one side to make an "elbow" for each arm.
  7. Ad

  8. Glue the arms and legs to the back of the heart. Remember to use only a small drop of glue for each arm and leg.
  9. Now, glue the heart (with the arms and legs already in place) onto the front of the card.
  10. Glue the felt hands and feet in place, again using only a small drop of glue to affix each hand and foot. Remember that the thumbs of the hands must be at the top.
  11. Now glue the eyes and mouth onto the heart to make a face. Then, using the red flat-back round rhinestone for a nose, glue it in place too.

  13. Glue the fabric bow in place at the top of the heart.
  14. Glue the red flat-back heart rhinestone in place where the two hands overlap.
  15. From the sheet of ordinary red paper, cut a piece sized 3.6 inches by 5.2 inches and glue it to the inside of the card. Using the Pilot drawing pen, write "My Valentine, I have your heart in my hands!" in ornamental writing on the piece of red paper that you have pasted on the inside of the card.
