I’m sure I first saw this Pop Up Valentine card project somewhere on Pinterest. Last year (almost) every kinder could make these hearts by the time class was over. It’s that easy!
• Cardstock paper, Valentine colors, 8.5″ x 11″
• Scrapbook paper (Valentine pads found in stationary dept.)
• Glue stick
1. Students glue a pattern sheet of 5″ x 8″ paper to the front of a folded card.
2. Students choose five hearts, and fold them in half with the pattern on the inside. I called them “white ice cream cones”.
3. All five folded hearts are lined up together, making SURE that the fold is on the same side. A glue stick is used to glue them together.
4. The fan heart is opened up and glued to the front of the card. The process is repeated to make heart two and three.

UPDATE: This is my 2nd year for making pop out cards with kinders, and I learned a few things about how to stretch my money. I still recommend using patterned paper from one of those big pads at Micheals, and good cream cardstock paper for the 8″ x 5″ backing. But the red folded paper needn’t be heavy, so some red colored paper from Staples works great. And if you stick to the red and pint patterned paper for your punched hearts, the matching color palette will be built in.
