DIY: Handmade Valentine's Day Cards

As a continuation from our last post about the Love Letter campaign for DoSomething.org and Meals on Wheels, I thought I'd share a tutorial on how to make a cute handmade card for your special someone this Valentine's Day!

Materials needed:
Cardstock - One bright color for the card and one craft color for the envelopes 
Hearts cut out of of paper -  use as many colors as you want
Glue, or glue dots
Envelope printable download - follow the link below to download

  1. Download and print the template for the envelopes on the craft paper and cut them out
  2. Fold the envelopes along the fold lines and glue the flaps together 
  3. Glue the envelope to the card and start gluing hearts in it spilling out
  4. Write a message of your choice for your loved one!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Love Letters

This month, we joined DoDomething.org's Love Letter campaign to make Valentines Day cards for senior citizens in our community that are home bound and face isolation due to disability, location, and language barriers. It was a really fun project for us and our Etsy Dallas team members that family and friends participated in and we got cards from all over Dallas and Austin too!

In total the team made over 100 handmade cards that Meals on Wheels will deliver over the next few days, and we hope it will put smiles on many faces!

Below are a few cards that Jenny and I made for the project. Later this week we will post some tutorials so you can make your own cards!
