Card Engineering 101

GooglyEyes

February 14th is right around the corner, and what could be better than a handmade Valentine? A pop-up Valentine, of course! Yesterday, I had the good fortune to spend the morning teaching eight delightful young men the fine art of card engineering. Templates for the heart and card were printed on card stock, scored with a bone folder, and cut out. We used patterned and colored paper, cardboard hearts, stickers, rick-rack, googly eyes, markers, and colored pencils to embellish our cards. It was a blast!
