What You Need

Step One: Begin by placing the white cardstock in the printer and printing the card template above.
Step Two: Next, cut a piece of black cardstock approximately 5″ by 7″ (or big enough to fit the red craft foam heart with space above and below.
Step Three: With the white gel pen, draw stars around the borders of the paper, leaving the middle blank if you wish. Let dry, and repeat on the other side.
Step Four: Next, glue one red heart down completely in the middle of the cardstock, and let dry.
Step Five: While it’s drying, cut out the Rebel Alliance symbol and the “i love you” phrase from the white cardstock paper you printed. Glue the symbol in the middle of the heart, and the words above it. Let dry.
Step Six: Flip the black paper over. Place glue around the bottom half and side of the heart, leaving the top unglued to slide a card or ticket in.

Step Eight: Let all glue dry completely. Slide your gift into the foam heart pocket, and your valentine is ready to give!
