Handmade Valentine Ideas Using Cardstock
This clever idea is great for a DIY classroom Valentine treat. If you are making multiples, simplify the process and just do two colors of cardstock and make an ombre heart.
A paper heart is dressed up in this simple DIY valentine card idea. Use your Cricut Pen Tool to draw on your sentiment and the work is done for you.
This die-cut heart card is a great Valentine's project for Cricut users. The die-cut lace, red glitter, and retro lettering really gives this handmade Valentine's day card a vintage charm! Plus - the Heartbeat Glitter scrapbook paper just steals the show.
Think outside the box and choose basic die cut shapes, but cut them in pink and red and add heart sprinkles or stickers. Sometimes just using valentine scrapbook paper with basic shapes is all you need for a handmade valentine card.
Speaking of "outside the box", check out this adorable pizza box gift card holder! Gift cards aren't the most personal gift, but this simple Valentine's Day craft elevates them into something truly special!
