"I Knead You" Card - finished cardMake a card for your sweetie using a play on words. The rolling pin is made from a piece of cardboard, and stands out nicely due to its thickness. I used plain craft paper for the dough and card base.


Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 1 card


  • red and white craft paper
  • scissors
  • piece of cardboard
  • glue
  • black pen

  1. Cut out a long rectangle from the red paper. Mine is about 8" x 4". Fold it in half to make the card base.

  3. To make the dough, freehand cut out a blob from the white paper. Make sure it's smaller than the front of the card.
