Supplies needed to make a Valentine’s Day card
The supplies you will need to make these simple homemade Valentine’s Day cards are likely things you already have at home.
- acrylic paint
- white cardstock (for the hearts)
- colored cardstock (for the cards)

Instructions for making a Valentine’s Day card
For small Valentine’s Day cards, print our hearts template. Alternatively, draw a large heart on a piece of cardstock.
Cut out your hearts and then fold them in half.
Paint one half of your paper heart with a generous amount of paint. Fold the heart in half again and press down – be careful as some of the paint might come out on the sides depending on how much you put on. Unfold it and you’ll see a mirror image of your paint on the other side. Set your Valentine’s Day hearts aside to dry.
Fold your colored card stock in half. Glue the paper hearts onto the front of each card.
