My Funny Valentine

I was teaching recently when one student said “it’s Valentine’s day, can we make something for our parents?”. Erk! Not being an overly romantic type, I had no idea this was coming, so had to think rapidly for something simple enough for this fairly young class to manage.

A quick trial later, I had a pop-up Heart Card for them – 6 creases and wee dab of glue. The heart used A6, the card A4. It’s nothing radical or wildly original and I’m sure you can figure it out from the photos, but I’ve actually drawn up a folding sequence – if you’d like a copy, drop me a line.

It’s dedicated to my guru Wayne, who’s in for an operation tomorrow. Not a brain scan, the equipment isn’t sensitive enough…
