Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, but we still have time for one more fun card craft idea. And our 3D Heart Air Balloon Valentine’s Day Card will be to send your Valentine soaring!
This 3D Heart Air Balloon Valentine’s Day Card uses layers of paper for a pop-out effect. It’s the same paper pop out idea as our Cat’s Meow Pop Up Paper Card, which is another fun Valentine’s Day card.
I’ve included a free printable template of all the 3D Heart Air Balloon Valentine’s Day Card pieces to make assembly even easier. Simply download, print, trace onto the paper of your choice and cut out! Other than that, it’s a pretty simple process of cut and paste all the pieces in place. Finally, write a sweet message in the clouds before giving it to your Valentine on Valentine’s Day!
- Heart Air Balloon Free Printable Template
- construction paper, 4-5 different colors including white
- fine-tip marker or pen
Take a colored rectangular paper and fold it into half lengthwise. Trace and cut the big heart on the folded paper by keeping the top sides of the heart along the fold. Unfold the paper after.
Take different colored craft papers and trace the patterns from the template on the colored craft papers. Carefully cut out the traced patterns from the craft papers.
Choose the placement of the heart air balloon. Take any 2 medium hearts, fold them into half and apply glue along the fold. Place the 2 folded hearts side by side on the place for the air balloon, creating another 3d heart pattern.
Take the last medium heart shape and fold it into half again. Apply glue along the fold and carefully place it in the middle of the 2 hearts from the previous step.
Now, take the rest of the air balloons patterns and glue them on their place. Finally glue the clouds. To give the clouds a little 3d look you can glue a small piece of cardstock paper below them. But make sure to write your message on the big cloud before gluing it on the card. Allow the glue to dry. You can create more variation of this card by using different colored and printed papers.
Here’s hoping Love is in the Air this Valentine’s Day for you and yours! Be sure to check out even more fun Valentine’s Day craft and recipe ideas at Our Kid Things!
