What you’ll need:
Step 1. Print and cut out the heart and envelope on white card stock. If you’re using the envelope, fold the flaps inward, and use doublestick tape or glue stick to close. Make sure you leave the top open until you’re done with your Valentine!
Step 2. Trace each of your child’s hands onto a sheet of white card stock. They’ll love helping with this part! Any excuse to get crafty. Cut out the hands.
Step 3. Attach the hands at either end of your ribbon or string. You can tape the ribbon to the back of the hands, punch a hole and tie them on or embellish them as you see fit. The creativity is up to you here.
Step 4. Tape the middle of the string to the back of the big heart. For my Valentine, I used a bit of red polka dot washi tape to make it look a little more interesting. I let my son scrawl his name on the front of the heart just to make it a little more personal. There is plenty of room to write love notes, front and back.
Your super-cute, full-of-love Valentine is finished now. Fold the heart in half, tuck it in your envelope and seal, and it’s ready to make some lucky (and loved!) person’s day.
