Specially for Him Card

Material

  • Pink card paper 5 ½” x 8 1/2″ in size
  • White card paper
  • X-Acto knife
  • Pair of scissors
  • Scratch off lottery ticket
  • Craft glue

Procedure

Look for a lottery ticket having “lucky” word written on it. Take the pink card paper and make four slits, at its base, in which the lottery ticket can be easily inserted. At the top of the card paper, stick a small white paper cut with spiral sides and write a sweet phrase on it like “Lucky to have you”, “Hugs and Kisses”, etc. Instead of the white paper you can also search for tiny metal plates that come with engraved love messages.

Cupid Heart Card

Material

Cupid Heart Card

Cupid Heart Card

  • Heart shaped cookie cutter mold, 4″ to 5″
  • Drinking straw, 1
  • Glittery pink craft foam
  • Pair of scissors
  • X-Acto knife
  • Fluffy pink feathers, 2
  • Craft glue

Procedure

Trace out 2 heart shapes on the pink craft foam by using cookie cutter molds. In the front side of one of the hearts, place the straw in an angled position, just the same that we commonly see everywhere, a heart with an arrow pierced in it! With the help of a pencil, mark the spot of the entry of the arrow as well as the exit. Now make slits on the marked points and insert the straw in it. Now, create a 1″ cut on the left end of the straw and insert in it a 2″ triangular cut of the same craft foam. By repeating the procedure with the right end of the arrow, insert the pink feathers in it. Secure all the cuts, using white craft glue. Take the other heart-shaped craft foam (the one that is without the arrow) and make a line of the white craft foam across its humps and place the arrowed-heart carefully over it. Let it dry overnight and later write your love message inside the hearts.
