Make It Monday: Valentine's Pop-Up Cards

In celebration of Valentine's Day next week, the kids made cards. We spiced things up a bit and made pop-up cards. They were incredibly simple to make. We had a lot of fun pretending to be surprised every time we opened one up.

Start with a strip of paper.

Fold it in half horizontally and cut half a heart along the fold.

Fold the open ends in toward the center fold.

Glue the end flaps inside the card, so that the heart protrudes forward.


The beginnings of a disaster.

He made the cutest surprise behind the heart.

Alyssa kept gluing, gluing, gluing.

And gluing.

Jake drew a snow scene, complete with a snowball fight.

Aren't they cute?

Jake informed me that they're not real valentines because they're not heart-shaped. Guess what we'll be doing tomorrow.
