Love Notes

love notesValentine’s Day is approaching. But, no worries, you still have time to make a heart-felt card for your sweetie.

You will need:

  • Blank card

  • Red scrapbook or wrapping paper

  • Craft glue

  •  Scissors

  •  Printer

Trace heart on back side of paper.Trace a heart on the wrong, or back side of the paper (that way your pencil marks won’t show on the front). A wide heart works best.

Cut out the heart.

Cut a one inch slit from the center dip (toward the bottom point).

Overlap the left section onto the right section.

red heartsGlue together to hold in place.

Print love notes in a pretty font. I think anything in French is very romantic. Je t’aime means “I love you” and Je t’adore means the same in English (I adore you!).

Print the love phrases directly on the card stock or print, cut out and glue to the card.                                 

Apply a small amount of glue to the edge of the heart and attach to the card. Inside, write a personal note to tell that special person how you really feel.
