Kids Valentine card: Ice cream cone Heart

Cone Ice cream Card which opens into a heart

Valentine's day is almost here and CJ wanted to make Valentine cards for her friends. She was so specific that the card should have a heart. So we browsed and browsed. I found lot of DIY cute/fun cards on site but my little girl wanted something more. She said "Mommy why don't you think of something cool". So I was thinking and thinking. When I saw this beautiful bouquet card linked up at Mindful Meandering Artsy-Craftsy Challenge, I knew that would make an Ice cream cone heart. I had decided but waited for CJ. So when she came from School, I told her my idea and she was super-duper excited. We made a heart and folded it. The front page of the card(one lop of the heart) is Ice cream cone and when you open it you have a heart. It turned out pretty good!

Cone ice cream card that opens into a heart shape

Materials Used:

Construction paper
Child Safe scissors
Smiley Sticker optional


Steps Overview
  1. Using the template, Cut the Heart out of Brown construction paper, Ice cream scoops out of pink/blue and cream construction papers. 
  2. Fold the Brown paper heart and glue the scopes of Ice cream on the front lop of the heart.
  3. Embellish with smiley sticker as cherry or use the template circle
  4. Decorate as you wish with glitters, markers. In the below card CJ just colored the pink paper for cherry top. I wrote "You're so cool"
  5. In the inside of the card(heart), write your valentine message. Cj belong to Busy bee class. So we drew a bee, flower and wrote "Bee my Friend"
