do something + give love letters...

Do-something-card

We created this Pop-Up Heart Valentine's Day card DIY for DoSomething.org and Mentor Up's Love Letters campaign which encourages teens to makes a card of love for senior citizens in their community. Even though Valentine's Day is still a month away, we love the idea of giving love any time of year to anyone who could use an extra smile.

Here's how to make one for a friend, loved one, or senior in your life...

Valentine's Day Pop-Up Card

1. Download our Heart Pop-Up template right here. You can use the template to trace over any other paper (patterned, solid colors, glittered, etc) or print it on paper of your choice.

2. Fold the printed template in half, then cut on the solid lines and fold on the dotted lines so that you're creating a full-sized heart when it's open. The inside piece (page 2 of the template) has the pop-up, and the outside piece (page 1 of the template) is a solid heart.

3. Make sure to pop out the inside's mini heart (see image above), then attach the inside and outside together with glue, double-sided tape, or any smooth adhesive. Then, decorate it however you like!
