This tutorial is offered by Laura from Dacian Moon Handmade



– paper (not too thin)
– scissors
– two pieces of leather (red and black)
– glue
– paints
– toothpick
– pencil


Step 1

Fold the paper in half.



Step 2

Draw with your pencil a heart on the red leather…

… and then cut out the heart.

It should look like this.


Step 3

Draw a hat on the black leather.

Now, we’ll cut out the hat.

Here it is:


Step 4

Apply a good layer of glue on the back side of the heart…

… and place it on the middle of the folded paper.


Step 5

Take the toothpick and use it to paint with black paint the eyes and the mouth on the Heart.

We use a toothpick because with it we can make more thin traces and it will give us accuracy.

Now draw the hands with black paint on the heart.


Step 6

Apply a good layer of glue on the back side of the hat…

… and place it on one hand of the heart.


Step 7

Write with red “Be my Valentine”.

How could someone resist this cute heart?

Now the outside of your Valentine’s Card is done…… write something on the inside and your card is ready to hand out to someone special.  Now the real question is….. who is this someone special?  hmmmm….
