Thoughtful Tuesday: heart cards

There's nothing better than receiving a cute card from a loved one, especially if you know they've spent some time making it with their very own hands! These really cute little cards which can be used for any occasion (and with Valentine's Day just two weeks ago what better excuse to make some?!) are available in the shop but now we're going to show you how to make some for yourself!

You will need:
- Pack of plain white card (we got ours from The Works)
- PVA glue
- An old book
- Scissors
- String

Step one: Fold your card in half.

Step two: Cut a heart shape out of one of the pages of the book.

Step three: Stick it down using the PVA glue and leave to dry.

For a 3D heart: use five different sized hearts. Put them all together and sew down the middle of the heart or use the PVA glue to stick down the middle.

When completely dry, you can then fold them out to create the 3D effect!

For a different effect, you could always use wallpaper, fabric or sheet music - or why not give it a go with any other material you like!
