Sweet butterflies card

Cut two hearts out of craft foam or heavy paper and decorate. Tape the hearts together, point-to-point, overlapping them a little. Use a twist-tie or a piece of pipe cleaner to make antennae to tape to a roll of LifeSavers, then tape the LifeSavers between the two hearts. Take a look at the a photo of the final projects.

Charmed card
Glue a heart doily to the front of a blank card. Spread some glue around the edge of the doily and sprinkle with glitter for a sparkly border. Punch two holes through the doily and string a Leather Charm Necklace through the holes. Tie the ends inside the card and tape in place.

Heart prints card
Press your index finger on an ink pad and then onto a card, on a slight diagonal to form one half heart. Make another print the opposite diagonal, with the bottoms of the print overlapping to finish the heart.

Bottle-cap card
Cut two paper stripes of contrasting colour to glue onto the front of a card. Glue craft foam hearts inside empty bottle caps. Glue alphabet letters onto the hearts to spell out a message. When dry, glue the bottle caps onto the stripes.
