Valentine’s Day Craft: Homemade Valentines

Nothing is better than gifting a homemade Valentine’s Day card to your loved ones! Perfect for your kids to show love to their classmates, friends and family, these three easy Valentine’s Day card ideas will be fun for all ages and only require a few materials.

Coffee Filter Heart Valentines

What you will need:

  • Coffee filters
  • Markers
  • Water
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Paper


  • Step 1: Take one coffee filter and color it however you want.
  • Step 2: Spray the colored coffee filter with water or add a few drops of water and watch the colors run together. Then, let the coffee filter dry.
  • Step 3: Once dry, cut your colorful art into hearts and glue onto the front of a folded piece of paper.
  • Step 4: Write your valentine a special note!

Rose Heart Card

What you will need:

  • Colored paper
  • Scissors
  • Craft glue


  • Step 1: Take a small, round piece of paper and cut it into a spiral.
  • Step 2: Starting at the outer edge of the spiral, roll the paper until you reach the center and secure with glue.
  • Step 3: Repeat steps one and two until you have your desired amount of miniature paper roses.
  • Step 4: Grab a piece of paper for the card, fold it in half and draw a heart on the front.
  • Step 5: Glue the paper roses inside the heart on the front of your card. Let the glue dry.
  • Step 6: Add a sweet note inside and give to your special someone!

Heart Bouquet Valentines

What you will need:

  • Card stock or construction paper
  • Tissue paper (a few colors)
  • Black crayon (colored pencil or marker works too!)
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick


  • A piece of newspaper
  • Ribbon or twine


  • Step 1: Make the base of your card by folding a piece of cardstock or construction paper in half, and from the fold, cut a half heart shape (so when your card is opened, it is a full heart).
  • Step 2: Using your black crayon, draw a few lines on the front of your folded card starting at the bottom point and fanning out towards the sides at the top. These will be the stems of your flowers.
  • Step 3: Take your tissue paper and cut small heart shapes to be the leaves and petals of your flowers.
  • Step 4: Arrange your petals into flower shapes by layering your hearts until you are happy with the way it looks. Then, glue the petals down onto the ends of your stems and add some green leaves by cutting hearts in half and gluing them on the stem lines.

Tip: To create a 3-D flower effect, try gluing only half of the heart to the paper.

  • Step 5 (optional): Like a bouquet from the store, you can give your flowers a newspaper wrapping. To do this, cut two small triangles out of your piece of newspaper and glue them overlapping onto the bottom of your card. Trim any excess hanging over the edges.
  • Step 6 (optional): To finish the bouquet, you can add a bow or ribbon around your stems. Take pieces of twine or ribbon and glue them on your stems. You can crisscross them or add a bow as if they were tied up with ribbon. Trim any excess over the edges.
  • Step 7: Write a special note on the inside of your card.
