This Valentines Home Made Card uses a collage of different crafting materials. After I armed my kids with glue sticks, children’s scissors, and lots of different craft materials, I set them to work making a colorful collage on a small piece of paper. We stuffed our background full of as many textures and bits as we could manage.

Valentines Home Made Card (Super Cool Idea!)

Supplies: (this post contains affiliate links)

Directions:

First, take the piece of cardstock and fold it in half like so.

Next, on a half sheet of solid colored paper add a thin layer of glue. You don’t want the glue too thin or else it will dry too quickly and the crafting materials won’t stick very well. You also don’t want it too thick, or it will get really messy and take a long time to dry.

Then, let your kids now decorate the paper all over with various crafting odds and ends, trying to cover most of the paper. The idea is to create a colorful collage.

Now take the folded cardstock and lightly create a simple design for your occasion. For example, if this card was for a birthday, then you might draw balloons, a birthday cake or balloons. For Valentine’s Day you could draw a heart and for Christmas a Christmas tree or snowman.

Next, very carefully cut the simple design you just created with a pair of scissors or parents can use a craft knife.

Once the collage is completely dry, measure it to make sure it fits on just one side of the opened card, like so.

Cover that side in glue, and then adhere the collage to the cardstock. Allow to fully dry open.

Finally, using markers write a personalized message on your kid’s home made card.

  1. These are soooo cute! What a great idea – to use just a little bit of a bigger piece of “art”.

  2. What a CLEVER idea! It turned out so pretty and interesting! It’s tricky to get artwork for very young children that turns out attractive.
