Instructions for making a Paper Heart Card
Step 1: Download and print out the free heart card template on any pastel colored cardstock paper. The pastel colors make the homemade card look reminiscent of traditional Valentine Day conversation hearts. If you don’t have pastel colors, simply use what you have on hand.
Another alternative is to print the cards on white cardstock and have children color the front of the card with crayons, colored pencils or markers.
Step 2: Fold the card template in half along the dashed line in the middle of the page.

Step 3: Use scissors to cut out both of the heart cards from the template. Make sure to cut out only along the black line of the heart, leaving the section along the dotted line uncut.
The section along the dotted line connects the two hearts together to make the folded card.
Step 4: Place two googly eyes at the top of your heart-shaped card. We love using adhesive googly eyes for simple projects like this so we don’t have to wait for any glue to dry.

Step 5: Use a black marker to draw a smile on your paper heart card.
You can get as creative as you want with designing the face of your cute Valentine card. Make a winky face, a kiss face, add eyelashes to your googly eyes, or any clever combination you can think of.

Step 6: Choose a conversation heart saying you want to use for the front of your card. There are so many fun ones to choose from.
Here are a few examples:
- LOVE U
- U R CUTE
- HUG ME
- BE MINE
Step 7: Using small uppercase alphabet stamps and a black stamp pad, stamp the saying you’ve chose on the front of your Valentine card.
To finish your heart-shaped Valentine’s Day Card, use markers to write a personal message on the inside of your card.
