Heart jar valentines card

Valentines day is the time of the year where we show those closest to us how much we love and appreciate them. For me, I think its a great holiday for children. It teaches the importance of expression and appreciation of those who deserve it. Personally I don’t think there is any better valentines gift than a handmade card; it doesn’t cost much to make and the effort that goes in to it means more than anything you can buy. This heart jar valentines is so sweet and easy to make. its great for older children to practise using scissors and as a sticking activity for smaller children.

You will need

Coloured card
Coloured paper

To start, take your piece of card and fold it in half. Cut the shoulders of your jar in to the top of your card.

Take the paper you are going to use for the lid and cut out two equal rectangles. Glue the first to the front of your card. Now, flip your card over and line the second one up on the back. This will help weigh it out so that your card can stand easily.

Now for the fun bit! Cut out several coloured hearts and stick them down all over your jar.

To finish of your card simply add your own super cute message to the lid. All that’s left to do now is to write inside and give your card to someone special!

Love bug heart card

This Little lovebug heart card makes the perfect card for valentines day or for any loved one! They’re super simple to make and only require basic craft materials, which makes it a great craft for classes and groups.

You will need:

Red card
Black card
Googly eyes
Black pen

From one piece of card you can make 3 love bug cards. Fold the card into 3 and cut along the folded lines.

Take one of your rectangle sections and fold it in half. Next you need to make your heart shape. To ensure the card functions, be careful not to cut the folded side of the card. Instead, use the folded side to make one side of your heart.

Next you need to make the head shape of your love bug. We found the easiest way to do this was to draw around the point of our bug then freehand draw the curve. Cut it out and glue it on to your bug.

Now you need to cut out and glue down hearts to decorate your card.

To finish the front of your little lovebug heart card, add two googly eyes, cut out a mouth shape and use your marker to draw on the shape of your wings!
