DIY Paper Card with Heart for Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day: Easy Tutorial for the Perfect Gift
Today we’ll show you how to make the perfect DIY paper card with hearts for Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day. Our easy tutorial will guide you through the process step by step and help you create a unique and personalized gift that your loved one will adore.
Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day are two special occasions that celebrate love, affection, and appreciation for those we love. And there’s no better way to show your love and appreciation than with a handmade card. By making your own card, you can express your emotions in a thoughtful and creative way.
In this tutorial, we’ll show you what simple materials you need, such as colored paper, scissors, glue, and a white pen. You can use any type of paper, including thick paper, origami paper, or even recycled paper. Plus, you can choose your favorite colors to create a unique and personalized card.
So, let’s get started!
Step 1. Take a colored sheet of paper (we chose yellow) measuring 10 by 20 centimeters.
Step 2. Fold the right edge of the paper towards the center (as shown on the diagram).
Repeat with the left edge, folding it towards the center of the paper.
Once both edges are folded, it will look like this.
Step 3. In this step, we’ll be folding the corners.
Fold back the previously folded edges to their original position. Fold one of the corners along the dotted lines (as shown on the diagram) at a 45-degree angle.
Now it is necessary to fold the bent angle inside the blank.
Repeat this step with the remaining corners.
Once all corners are folded, it will look like this.
Step 4. Now it’s time to add the most important thing to our craft – love!
Yes, love! Let’s start cutting out hearts. Take a sheet of red paper and fold it in half.
Then in half again
Draw or trace a heart shape on the paper, and cut out the heart with scissors.
Since the paper was folded four times, you will have four hearts.
Step 5. In this step, we need to glue our hearts to the card.
If you haven’t prepared the glue yet, you should hurry up! 🙂 Take the glue and apply it to the bottom edge of the cut-out heart.
Stick the heart in the specified place. Do this as carefully as possible, and you will get the most beautiful card filled with love.
After gluing the heart, try to fold the card. Make sure that it is hidden inside and not visible from the outside.
If everything is okay and the heart is securely attached, repeat the same operation with the remaining three hearts.
As a result, you will get a blank like this.
Step 6. In this step, we need another sheet of red paper. Let’s cut out two large hearts and fill them with all our love.
Take the sheet of red paper.
Fold it in half.
Prepare a template, or simply draw the outline of a heart on the folded sheet of paper. This time the heart should be larger than before. Now we need to use scissors again.
So, we have two beautiful hearts filled with love.
Now we need to glue these hearts onto our card. Apply the glue and stick one heart inside the card in the center.
Cut the other heart in half.
Now we have two halves of one heart to glue onto the opening edges of our future card.
Take the glue, apply it to our heart halves, and stick them to our card.
Step 7. Take a pen and decorate the heart that we glued inside our card.
Our beautiful card is ready!
Surprise someone you love. Unforgettable emotions are guaranteed!
By following these simple steps, you can make a beautiful and unique paper heart card for your loved ones on Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day.
