Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it’s one of our favorite holidays! Celebrating love and all things pink just bring so much joy! And what’s a better way to tell someone you care than with a handmade card?
Create a fringe layered, heart shaped card using the steps below! This card has tons of texture and color, plus features hearts in multiple ways to show all your love!
Fold your construction paper in half and draw a large heart, measuring 5-6” tall. As you draw your heart, let a portion of the left side fall off the folded edge so your heart is the card itself.
Cut the heart shape out with the paper still folded, being sure to not cut the entire fold off so it holds the two sides of the card together.
Cut the felt strips in half length wise, then cut thin fringe across the entire length of each half strip. You will need 10-12 half strips of fringe per card (depending on the size of your card)
Using glue dots or hot glue, add glue dots onto the edges of the front of the heart shape. Starting at the bottom of the heart, place a fringe strip horizontally covering the point of the heart and both sides. Add a second fringe strip layered on top of the first, continue adding one strip at a time until the front of your card is covered with fringe.
Turn the card over and trip all the excess fringe off, cutting along the heart shape.
Using 2 small metallic fuzzy sticks, twist the ends of them together at one end and curve them into a heart shape and twist the bottom ends together to form a heart. Glue the fuzzy stick heart on top of the fringe to finish the front of your card.
Write a sweet message to your Valentine, friend or family and give away your handmade card on Valentine’s Day!
