When I tuck my children into bed, say good bye to them, or even part with my husband... they often hear "Love you more than words can say." My mother said/says it to me. We pass these bits of love down the family tree, don't we... I'm sure you have a saying, too. I thought it would be sweet to put these words on everyone's nightstands on Valentine's day. Shhh. A little greeting when they open their eyes. Since my daughter had called the process of punching out her water color hearts "heart popping", I got the idea to make a couple of the extras into these pop up cards. Here's how:
- I took a small rectangle of card stock (around 3x5) and created a crease at the midpoint with a bone folder.
- A watercolor heart was pasted over the crease.
- I cut out the heart to the crease with an xacto knife.
- When I folded the card, that little heart popped right up!
