Looking for a unique and kawaii card for your sweetheart? In that case we’ve got a nice DIY project for you. Our Super Cute Kawaii Valentine’s Day printable card is easy to make and it comes with a cute love coupon.
What you’ll need:
- Printable template – download from Ko-Fi (and consider a donation to support SCK)
- Two sturdy sheets of A4 paper
- Pair of scissors
- Hobby knife with a cutting mat
- Tape (washi or regular)
Download the free printable and print both pages – use the ‘fit to page’ or ‘scale to fit’ setting to match your paper size. I would recommend using photo paper for page 1 and regular card stock for page 2 as this makes it easier to write on the coupons. In these photos I’ve used photo paper for both pages.
We’ll start with the first sheet, which contains the card. First you can place a ruler on the dashed line in the middle to score the card. This will allow you to make a crisp fold later on. I used a wooden letter opener, but you can also use a bone folder or a dull knife for this.
Next up, put your printed card on the cutting mat. Place the (metallic) ruler just inside the pink marks and make a straight cut using the hobby knife. Repeat this for all the sides.
Now you can take out the card and fold it in half.
Time for the fun part; decoration! Cut out one of the hearts and put a folded piece of (washi) tape behind it. Place it on the middle of the card. You could stick the other heart on the inside of the card, or use it as a separate small card.
Cut out the coupon and write your gift on it. For example ‘A romantic dinner for two’ or ‘A movie of your choice’ or something unique that your loved one will appreciate. You can place the coupon(s) with a bit of washi tape on the inside of the card. Lastly you could write a message or poem on the inside of the card.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
