Valentine Card: Candy Cane Card

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Create a striped sensation, and get rid of those postholiday candy canes, with these confectionary Valentine cards.

Materials

Candy Canes

Red card stock

Ruler

Color-Aid paper

Craft knife

Non-toxic white glue

Markers

Instructions

Turn the red card stock into a card by scoring a crisp center fold: simply place a ruler where the fold will be (making each half 8 by 6 inches) and run the knife along the ruler without cutting through the paper. Fold the card in half along the score line.

Tear the Color-Aid paper into a rectangle to fit on the front of the card. The white side will show through along the ripped edges and form a pretty frame. Glue this rectangle onto the card.

Glue two candy canes in the center, facing each other to form a heart. Be sure to keep the wrappers on. (Mini canes would also be cute.)

Write a message in the center of the candy heart or along the outside. Don't forget to sign the inside of the card, too.
