Sweet Text Message

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Cupid's calling! And we've got the perfect answer: a candy-button phone that tells your valentines they're worth every minute. Sharon Cindrich, a mother of two and a FamilyFun craft contributor from Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, designed this card using card stock, white paper, and button candy.


  • Silver card stock
  • White paper
  • Button candy
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Markers


1. Cut a rectangle from silver card stock (ours is about 2 1/2 by 7 inches), then fold it in half and round the corners.
