Kid Craft- Valentine Pop-up card

What you need: Plain white card stock; colored construction paper; glue stick; markers, crayons or colored pencils.
How to do it: 1. Fold a piece of card stock in half.
2. Mark 2 parallel lines in approximately the center of the card about an inch apart and cut on them.
3. Fold this section to the inside and crease the 2 folds.
4. Fold a section of a colored piece of construction paper along one edge- make this folded section about 2 1/2 inches wide.
5. Draw 1/2 of a heart so the center of the heart is on the fold, then cut on the line. Make the widest part of the heart no more than 2" from the fold.
6. Using a glue stick, glue the left hand side of the heart to the left-hand side of the small inside fold you created in the card. Close the card to make sure the heart doesn't stick out.
7. Use markers, colored pencils or crayons to add words or designs to the heart and inside of the card.
8. If desired, glue another piece of colored construction paper on the outside of the card to hide the cut-out piece of the pop-up and decorate that.
Have fun!
Thank you to Hannah Jaros for the instructions on the pop-up card.
