Get creative this Valentine’s Day and make something fun for a loved one like this Valentine’s Day DIY Card.

This year we decided to hand make our Valentine’s Day cards by using free paint swatches from our local home improvement store.

You wouldn’t believe how creative you can get with a few of these paint swatches.

Since it’s Valentine’s Day we chose to display a bunch of little hearts in various pinks on the front of our card.

On the inside we printed out a fun Happy Valentine’s Day saying that turned out fantastic.

If you need an easy easy DIY Valentine’s Day card craft to make with the kids, this is it!

Plus, this handmade DIY Valentine’s Day card will be cherised by all who receive it.

And, this cute DIY Valentine’s Day card you can quickly make many to give out to your friends and family this year.

To give the inside an extra little pop we applied 2 glittery hearts picked up from our local Dollar Tree.

Are you ready to make your very own Valentine’s Day card? Let’s get started.

Print The Valentine’s Saying:

This easy DIY Valentine’s Day card is well on it’s way! Now on to the printing part or you could just hand write a saying inside the card.

If you would like to get a saying on the inside, like we did, all you have to do is type up your text in Microsoft Word, shift it over to the left, and print away (or you can download and print ours as shown above).

Fold & Glue:

Once the print has been completed you will fold the kraft paper in half like a hamburger and in the half crease mark cut it in a straight line. This allowed us to get 2 cards out of one sheet of paper.

Once you have made the cut fold them in half again to get a folded traditional card.

Now the fun part!

Dab tons of glue all over the front of your card and start laying your hearts down in a random pattern…definitely get the kids involved in this part.

Allow the glue and hearts to dry for a few moments and your homemade Valentine’s Day card is complete.

We felt the inside was a little drab and needed some sparkle so my daughter suggested adding two glittered hearts from the Dollar Tree to give it that extra pop or sparkle. We think it turned out great!

As you can see, this an easy easy DIY Valentine’s Day card craft to make with the kids, this is it!

Plus, this handmade DIY Valentine’s Day card will be cherised by all who receive it.

And, this cute DIY Valentine’s Day card you can quickly make many to give out to your friends and family this year.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
