Lift-the-Flap Valentine Chocolates Card

Happy Valentine's Day!  I hope you have a wonderful time celebrating with your loved ones.  Today I'm sharing a Valentines's Craft that my son and I made this year for my husband.  It's a lift-the-flap Valentine's Day Box of Chocolate Card.  You lift the flap to reveal secret messages from the ones you love.

Inspiration:

Anna from The Imagination Tree wrote a book called  The Story of the Kindness Elves.  She sent me a copy to review and we really enjoyed reading it.  It's a sweet story about two little elves who team up with two children to do acts of kindness around their town.

After reading the book I was thinking of ways that we could be kind to others.  With Valentine's Day around the corner,  I thought it would be nice to create a card with my son to encourage and love my husband.

Let's Make a Valentine's Day Card! 

Grab some red, black, white, and brown construction paper.  

Cut out a large heart from the red paper.

Then, cut out a slightly smaller heart from black paper.  Use a glue stick to glue the black heart on top of the red heart.

Cut out several white circles.  Then, cut out several slightly small brown circles.  Glue your white circles onto the black heart.  Then, fold a small portion of your brown circles and glue them down to your white circles, creating a flap.  (Now you've made all the chocolates.)

Grab your chalk markers and Sharpie markers and get to work decorating your chocolates and box and writing your encouraging messages.

Gorgeous, right?

This is such a neat card because it's beautiful and when you lift up the flaps, your recipient gets a bunch of lovely, encouraging messages as well.
