As Valentine’s Day approaches we love to try out different types of Valentine’s Cards. Today we experimented with tissue paper. The results were 2 adorable tissue paper Valentine cards. (I have to admit they are much cuter in person. The pictures just don’t do them justice.) This post contains affiliate links.
Tissue Paper Valentine Cards — 3D Hearts
You’ll need: Construction paper, scissors, contact paper, tissue paper
After cutting a piece of construction paper in half, fold one piece to make a card. Cut a heart (or two… or three) into the front of the card. We used the fold and cut half a heart trick to make ours.
Cut a piece of contact paper to fit behind the front of the card. Peel and stick (easy enough).
Tear pieces of tissue paper and scrunch them into balls. Press each tissue paper ball onto the contact paper. (You can lay the tissue paper flat onto the contact paper if you prefer.) Little M also added in some of the construction paper left over from cutting out the hearts.
For toddlers have the hearts and contact paper in place before starting this kids activity. They will have a great time adding the tissue paper. Older kids can complete the entire Valentine’s card on their own.
Tissue Paper Valentine Cards — Heart Window
You’ll need: Construction paper, scissors, contact paper, tissue paper, glue
Cut a piece of construction paper in half. Fold it to make a card. In the front of the card cut out a heart.
Glue a piece of contact paper behind the heart window. For this one you want the sticky side to be inside the card.
Tear pieces of tissue paper and fill the heart. We scrunched it up, but flat pieces would work just as well.
Glue a piece of construction paper over the tissue paper and contact paper.
That’s it. Your tissue paper Valentine’s Day cards are ready to be filled out with messages of love. These would be perfect for Grandparents or teachers.
Can you think of a cute saying that would be perfect for these cards? Leave it in the comments…
