Kid's Craft - Valentine's Day Cards

Creating Homemade Valentines Card/Pencil Holder

Give the gift of something personal. Nothing shows you care more than something you have made yourself. Anyone can go to the store a buy a card. It takes planning and thought to create you own cards - and your recipient will treasure your gift even more.

Supplies: Card Stock Craft Paper, embellishments, glue,
hole punch and pencils

You can really use any type of craft items or scrap you already have at home. For Grace's class valentines, I used some 12 x 12 scrapbooking pages and cut them into 6 pieces. I took scraps of paper in different shapes and layered the cards to make them more colorful. Grace wrote her classmates name, signed each card, stamped with rubber stamps and decorated them with stickers. To add the pencil, we used a hole punch to create a hole at the top and bottom of each card, then slid the pencil into the hole. EASY!
