DIY Valentines
You can mass produce some DIY Valentines with some pretty paper, heart punch and hole punch.

These stamp edges were made with a hole punch, punching just a half hole all around the outside of an art trading card. After that, you just need some pretty pink paper from your favorite craft store, and maybe a heart punch or two.


  • Card stock paper, in shades of pink and white
  • Paper cutter
  • Hole punch
  • Glue stick
  • Trading card sleeves (AKA penny sleeves)


  1. PREP: Cut lots of white card stock to trading card size (2.5″ x 3.5″). Cut lots colored paper to 2″ x 3″ rectangles.
  2. Students use a hole punch to punch half of a hole out all the way around the white paper.
  3. A heart hole punch is used to punch out the desired heart shade to go on the colored rectangle.
  4. The heart is glued on the colored paper, and then both are glued onto the white “stamp”.
  5. Cards are stored in a plastic sleeve.
