Who doesn't love a homemade card? These Valentine's Day pop-up cards are sweet and simple; plus, they're perfect for the whole family! Try out this fun DIY and kick off the sweet exchanges a little early! 

These adorable Valentine's Day cards are perfect to make with kids. They're way more personal and touching than store-bought cards, and are customizable in a way that captures the true meanings of Valentine's Day. Gather everyone around for a day of cookies and crafting, and make cute little family Valentines that you'll want to treasure forever.

  • 1 piece of white card stock
  • 1 piece of colored card stock
  • 1 piece of glitter card stock
  • scissors
  • glue dots
  • heart hole puncher

Step 1: Fold your white card stock in half, and draw half of a heart on it.

Step 2: Cut your heart out except the last 1 inch in the middle of the heart.

Step 3: Open your paper and fold the heart inwards.

Step 4: Fold your colored card stock in half and use glue dots to adhere it to the outside of your card.

Step 5: From the glittered card stock, cut out a big heart and glue it to the front of the card. Use the heart hole punch to punch out a bunch of little hearts.

Step 6: Use glue dots to glue the small hearts on your pop out heart in the center of our card.

Step 7: Write a sweet message on the inside and outside of your card.

Since we used gold glitter paper, my daughter thought it would be sweet to write, “You have a heart of gold." How adorable is that? Go forth and create!
