Heart cards for your valentine make great gift tags too.

Heart cards for your valentine make great gift tags too.

Handmade Valentine’s Day cards are a tradition so many of us created as kids and just kept it going. Here’s how you can do this one too:

Make a color copy of any art work or photograph you like onto letter size heavy weight paper. Cut out a heart-shaped template like the one I show you below. (You can copy this template below to your desktop and print it out to use. It’s FREE from me!)

Card template in white is place on folded page with your copied art or photo

Trace around the template and cut out the folded card. You are DONE! You can even do this with wrapping paper glued to card stock. I score the fold line lightly before folding to get a nice clean fold. (Tip: if template prints large, check your printer settings and type 100 to 125 percent in the dialogue box before you print.)

Look for small envelopes (note card or invitation size) at the stationery store, or make your own. Happy Valentine’s Day!
