Unique Homemade Valentine's Day Cards
I knew the little pouch template I made last year would come in handy. The large template was for mailing sendables, you can view the original pouch card here.
The smaller pouch template however, I made on a whim... to use up space on the paper and because I figured it would come in handy some day. And now here we go.
How to Make a Valentine Pouch Card
Here's how to make these unique homemade Valentines Day cards that hold candy, stickers, love notes and more... these are only 3 x 3 inches but you can make them any size you want.
What You'll Need:
Note: Here we're using the smaller template but either can be used to make a great homemade Valentine card. The smaller pocket fits less candy than the larger.
Tools: Ruler, scissors, 1/8" hole punch, glue of your choice.
Tip: For little kids you may want to skip the hole punch and just glue a bow to the front of the finished pouch. This is because little kids will have trouble not tearing open the pouch to get it open.
Note: The two ends of the ribbon will go through the single hole in the top flap (as shown above right)...
When you are ready to close the pouch, you can make a bow (no knot needed). Of course, you should wait until your card is finished and you've enclosed your Valentine gifts (stickers, candy, notes etc.) before completing this step.
What Can You Put Inside? These homemade Valentines Day cards are fairly small, a good size for Valentine exchanges. You can't fit a lot of candy but you can enclose:
You can also make larger cards using the larger pouch on the template sheet, which is 4 x 4 inches if you would prefer a larger pocket.
