Looking for a creative alternative to store-bought Valentines? Get out your favorite crayons or colored pencils, and create these whimsical pop-up cards for whomever you’re sweet on. You’ll need to print out our Pop Up Heart Card template before you begin (for the best results, print on card stock). The Valentines shown here were made with our Lyra Colored Pencils.
Now fold it in half the other way, with the colored portion on the outside. Only fold down the center of heart, then stop. Crease. Open the card back up and fold half of the heart down along the dotted line (as shown above, right).
You’re almost done! Now fold the other half of the heart down along the dotted line. The heart should fold down into the card and be invisible. If a little piece of the heart is peeping up above the card, you can trim it off.
