Diagram 1



Going lengthwise across the 5 ” x 8 ” cardstock, measure 2 1/8” in from both edges. Score vertically. Crease and fold in on the scored lines to create the two front flaps of the card, they should meet in the center.

Trace and cut out hearts form cardstock according to the patterns. Or you can cut your own free-form shaped hearts.


Place the large heart in the center of the card. Use the double stick tae to adhere the heart to only the left side flap. Take a smaller heart and place along the center. Adhere this heart to the right side flap. These two hearts will keep the card closed. Use the rest of the hearts to decorate the card.


Open up the card and write your message inside.
