Here's another craft idea that I learned from my son. He is preparing a lot of unique valentine greetings for his teachers. What I like most about these crafts is that you won't need to spend so much for a gift. And it will take only 10 minutes to make.
Pen and marker
Cut two art papers of the same color into 8x8 inches square. Take one and fold horizontally both sides to form a cross in the center. Make sure to crease all the folds tightly.
Make all the paper corners meet in the center point of that cross.
From that position, fold it equally divided into three.
Unfold, turn to the opposite side and do the same. When you unfold it, it shall mark lines that form squares.
Unfold the triangles on two sides.
Pull up the two edges, then push the corners inside as you pull up the tip at the same time. It should look like this.
Do the same on the other end. Push both flaps inside to form the box. See picture.
Take the second paper and do the same procedures to make the second box.
Leave a 1.5 cm excess on one flap of this box. See photo.
Write the word "pull" in it. Set aside the two boxes.
Now cut out 3-4 strips of paper (1cm). You can choose a different color of your choice.
Put two strips together in an "L" position.
Fold each strip in alternately overlapping each other to form a paper spring. Add more strips a to make it longer or as needed.
When it's done, glue it in the center of the second box.
Cut out a small heart and draw a face or write your message.
Stick it on top of the paper spring.
Decorate the 1st box with stickers or cutout pictures.
Insert 2nd box to the 1st box. Open it to test and see the effect.
