Upcycled Valentine Cards

Thinking ahead to Valentine’s Day, we thought we’d have fun with some heart shapes & do some recycling along the way.

I found some white card (which had print on the reverse) & some pieces of thin white foam & cut out a selection of heart shapes, cutting out another smaller heart in the centre. Keep the 'mini' hearts from the centre as these can be used as decorations too.

Minnie loves flicking through old magazines, catalogues, brochures & cutting out the things that catch her eye. She often makes collages with these cutouts, but for this activity we used them for something new.

Minnie started by flicking through a Boden catalogue & choosing the patterns she liked, they have such fantastic designs & colourful prints it’s hard to choose which patterns to leave! Once the patterns were chosen Minnie cut them out.

We glued the printed side of the white card/foam & stuck it over Minnie’s catalogue cutout. Carefully we trimmed around the outer heart shape & our beautiful heart was ready.

We made several of these (as you can see!) & then set to work adding them to cards ready for Valentine’s Day!

Now all we have to do is to decide who to send them too! ♥
