Last year we made some really difficult (yet really cool) circuit Valentine’s Day cards. This year we have gone back to simple with a spinning heart Valentine’s Day card.   And the great thing is that you should have all the supplies at home.

Make sure you follow my Valentine’s board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later. 

To make a spinning heart Valentine’s Day card you will need:

  • Card
  • Coloured paper
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Thread
  • Tape

I had some blank cards in my supplies, but you can just fold a piece of paper (card stock is better) in half to create a card.

In the middle of the front of the card, draw and cut out a circle.

On a separate piece of paper, cut out 2 hearts. They need to be the same shape and size.

Next cut out 2 lengths of thread. It needs to be long enough to go across the circle you cut out in the card.

Cover one heart in glue, lay the thread across it, then place the other heart on top.

Open the card up and tape the top thread above the top of the hole. Tape the bottom part of the thread on the opposite of the hole. Make sure that the heart is sitting in the middle of the hole, and the thread is pulled tight. Cut off any excess thread.

Finally decorate the front of the card and write your Valentine’s message on the inside. We used washi tape to decorate our cards.

As I said they’re very simply to make, but look great. BB was able to practice his cutting skills with this craft.
