Tissue Paper Hearts Valentine
Children can be as creative as they like with this Tissue Paper Hearts Valentine Card. The cutting requires a little bit of skill, so it might be better for older children.
- Different colors of tissue paper. Valentine colors of pink, red, purple work well.
- White tissue paper
- Craft glue diluted (half water, half glue) in a small bowl.
- Medium width paint brush
- Construction paper or card-stock paper. For this example, I used red and a white paper with colored flecks.
- Glue stick
- Cut the construction paper in half, then fold in half. Two cards can be made from each piece of paper. Each card will be approximately 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ .
- Have the children measure a 1″ border around the front face of the card.
- Make a snip in the center of the card with scissors then cut to each of the four corners. Fold the triangle sections back then cut out to make the frame. (See example) If there are too many pencil markings on the front of the card, simply re-fold so the markings are inside the card.
- Cut a section of white tissue that is the same size as the folded card.
- Cut 10 – 12 mini hearts out of the different colors of tissue paper.
- Lightly brush the white tissue paper with the watered down glue mixture and randomly adhere the colorful hearts – keeping them a little more to the center of the paper. If desired, place one or two of the tissue paper hearts on the inside of the folded card.
- Once the white tissue paper section has dried, apply a very light amount of glue stick around the inside section of the card and attach the white tissue paper so that the hearts show through the frame of the card.
