  1. Fold a sheet of cardstock in half.

  2. Press heart shapes firmly into paint and then onto the paper. Let dry.

  3. Add glitter or bows to decorate the cards.

  4. Encourage kids to 'sign' their names or make drawings with crayons inside the cards.

You can practice painting shapes onto plain paper before actually making cards to see how your design will look.
