Easy Valentine Card

Ok, friends, Valentine’s Day is next week, which means it’s really time to start thinking about the cards and gifts we want to give to the people we love!  Personally, I tend to be a fan of handmade cards.  First of all, because let’s be honest…most storebought cards are pretty expensive.  Second, although there are certainly some good ones out there, sometimes I have a hard time finding one that says exactly what I want to express.  So, I often find myself making my card for hubby so that I can write whatever is on my heart.  Here is a quick and easy card design I came up with that you can *honestly* make, even if you’re not a paper crafter.  Take a look…

– cardstock

– Duck Tape {I used pink and Wild Hearts}
– red ribbon

Duck Tape Valentine's Day Card

Step 1: Cut your cardstock in half so you have two pieces measuring 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Set one piece aside to use later, and fold the other piece in half.  The front of the card should measure 4.25″ x 5.5″.

Step 2: Adhere a piece of pink Duck Tape across the bottom of the card front.  I wrapped the excess around the card front and overlapped it in the back.

Step 3: Adhere a piece of Wild Hearts Duck Tape across the top of the card front.

Step 4: Wrap a piece of red ribbon tightly around the card front in between the two pieces of tape.  Secure ends on the back of the card front.

Step 5: Cut a small piece of red ribbon and tie it around the ribbon on the card to give the appearance of a knot.  I decided to use pinking shears to trim my ribbon ends just to add a little extra detail.

Easy peasy!  See, you don’t need any paper crafting skills at all; just Duck Tape and a little bit of ribbon, and you’ve got a fun, festive card…best of all, you can write any message inside!

Hugs & Glitter,
