Children's Crafts - Pop up Valentines Card from www.walkaboutcrafts.comYou will need:

thin card or stiff paper about 12 x 7 inches, folded in half for the basic card
stiff paper or thin card
sharp scissors
ruler
pencil
paper
glue

1. For the vase, fold a piece of card or stiff paper in half. Draw a triangle about 4 inches as shown. Cut out. Fold under the two long edges to make tabs.

2. Cut out two heart shapes about 1/2 inch high. Cut two strips of card or stiff paper about 5 inches long. Pleat fold like a concertina. Glue a small heart to one end of each strip. Stick the other end of each strip to the inside of the vase top.

3. Dab a little glue along vase tabs. Stick carefully to inside of the basic card so that the vase sticks up towards you. Make sure the folds of the basic card and the vase line up.

4. Fold card or stiff paper in half and cut out a big heart shape about 2 inches high. Then cut a strip about 2 inches long. Pleat fold the strip and stick one end to the back of the heart. Stick the other end to the card.

5. Cut out another big heart shape with a tail 6cm long. Pleat fold the tail. Glue one half of the heart to the card so that the other side sticks up. Glue tip of the tail close to the vase top.

6. Cut out a flower shape and glue a smaller rosette on top in a different colour. Then cut two leaf shapes on a long thick stalk. Pleat fold the stalk. Stick leaf shape and top third of the stalk to the back of the flower.

7. To finish, pleat fold the tail of the stalk and stick the tip to the card. Stick a couple of small heart shapes onto the card.
