Valentines Cards / January 4, 2019 / Rachel Gates
The paper can be folded cut shaped in any way that they would like it to be. Heres one project to try: * Fold the paper in half and then fold it in half again in the other direction. * Trim the outer edge as desired and cut a straight line diagonally across the folded corner. This will make a diamond shape in the middle. * Fold it diagonally. Cut hearts along the diagonal line. When the paper is unfolded there is a line of pin pricks which make it look much like a piece of lace. * Add this lacy paper to the top of a piece of pink or red paper. * Add decorations such as a picture of cupid a coloring of a rose or anything that is enjoyable. This is a simple affordable way to make homemade Valentines that parents and other friends will love to hang on to for many years to come.

Children could actually cut out the cards from the book personalize them with lace trim or even with candy and then send them on. But it wasnt long before children were ready to skip the cutting out part altogether. The Puns Who hasnt smirked at the cute sayings that are placed on the Valentines cards?
