DIY Handmade Valentine's Day Card

Give a unique card this Valentine's day that says I love you with a personal touch. The total cost was $3.40 but if I had glue handy it would've cost me $1.70! This is a very fun, inexpensive, DIY craft.

What you need:

Directions:
1.  Cut the base paper 8x10in or trace an old card onto the base paper and cut that out (I used the polka dot paper for my base). Then fold in half.

2. Cut the red strip for the front of the card 8x2.5in and glue it in the center of the front of the card.

3. Next cut the same red paper for the inside of the card 8x9in and glue it to the inside of the card. Don't forget to write your message inside!

4. Cut out 5 hearts in red and black for a total of 10 hearts.
 
5. Glue the black hearts on the red strip. Fold the 5 red hearts in half. Then place glue in the center of the outside fold and place them centered onto the black hearts. Now you have an amazing Valentine's Day or anniversary handmade card!
