What You'll Need:

  • Magazine or scrap paper
  • Craft needle
  • Blank cards and envelopes
  • Scissors
  • Paper cutter
  • Glue
  • Paintbrush

  • Stamp pad

Directions:

  1. Gather together scraps of paper, or tear magazine pages to create really adorable hearts to adorn the cards. Select reds, pinks, or pastel patterns for use.
  1. Cut skinny strips of paper using the paper cutter or scissors, around one quarter-inch or less in width.
  1. Fold the paper in half, wrap one end around the craft needle, and begin rolling it into itself. Continue rolling toward the fold, leaving around a half-inch of paper close to the fold.
  1. Now roll the other side of the heart, and then slide out the needle, revealing the cute curled paper heart.
  1. Use letter stamps to write a special note on the front of the card or, if you've got fancy handwriting, use a black marker to write something lovely.
  1. Now coat one side of the curled paper heart with glue, and press onto the card.
  1. Continue rolling and gluing hearts to create the finished card. Pop into an envelope, and you've got a really special, and personalized, Valentine's Day card!
