I shared these simple I adore you DIY valentines last year on A to Z Celebrations and wanted to make sure to share them here as well because they are seriously the handmade DIY valentines ever.
You’ll most likely have all of the supplies to make these cards on hand. All you’ll need is:
- Scrapbook paper in fun Valentine’s Day colors (pink, red, purple) or patterns
- Scrapbook paper in a solid color that contrasts with the Valentine’s Day patterns (black, white)
- White cardstock
- Red or pink marker or a Valentine’s Day “I adore you” stamp
- A gluestick
Step 1: Cut out 3×5 inch rectangles from the white cardstock and 2.75 inch x 4.75 inch rectangles from the patterned scrapbook paper. Repeat until you have one white rectangle and one scrapbook paper rectangle for each card you need to make. Glue one of the long edges of the patterned scrapbook paper to one of the white cardstock rectangles.
Step 2: Cut out a small heart from the solid colored scrapbook paper by folding the paper in half and cutting half of a heart shape.This will give you a perfectly symmetrical heart.
Step 3: Glue the heart onto the front of the card on the right edge, right in the middle vertically, like a doorknob.
Step 4: Open the card and either write or stamp “I adore you,” or “I a-door you” on the inside if you want the cleverness of the card to be more obvious.
You could also create a variety of cards and use a combination of different sayings like “I a-door you,” and “You are a-door-able.” And that’s it, the easiest homemade Valentine’s Day cards ever.
