Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, what plans do you have with your hubby and/or kids? My husband and I don’t really celebrate it because of practical reasons like traffic jams and packed restaurants. And if we were to go on a date, we have to bring the kids since they don’t have a nanny. It’s going to be a very ordinary day for us.
But, I have been bitten by the love bug and decided to do something for Valentine’s. Not a grand romantic gesture, though, I made a cymple Valentine’s Day card inspired by the song Love Is An Open Door from the movie Frozen. I would like to share it with you.
I gathered my materials:
- 2 pieces colored papers, one light blue, one pink (I didn’t want to use the usual color red)
With the folded paper in portrait orientation, glue the cut paper to the bottom half so that the card opens like an awning window. It can also open like a book, if you want, but the heart should be cut in a vertical orientation.
After the glue has dried, I wrote the letters on the front and inside the “door”. Then, it’s time to decorate! I placed heart cutouts and sprinkled them with glitters. The lines on my door are made of glue and glitter, too.
Here is the Valentine’s Day card in action, the heart doors open to the words. You could also write a “secret” message inside. Use beads and strings to make a “lock” for the door.
Did you make any Valentine’s Day crafts for your loved ones or with your children? Please share with me your links in the comments, I would love to see them.
