We love making cards in our house. It started off as an activity to encourage my daughter to write and now it is one of our favourite art activities.
We started this card by tracing around a large heart template and then cutting it out. Once you have the basic shape you need to cut out an inner heart . We did ours by starting at the bottom of the heart
Cut all the way around but make sure you leave a bit at the bottom still attached
You then need to glue the outside heart onto another piece of paper so that you have something to write your message onto (make sure the inner heart is not glued). Once you have glued it down cut around the heart shape (the photos below should help show what I mean).
The outside of the card looks like this
Here is one that my daughter made for her dad.
The inner heart where she wrote “daddy” folds out and on the inside you can write your message. (the white paper or card is glued onto the red paper or card).
It ends up being a such a cute card.
