How to Make the I Woof You DIY Valentine’s Day Card

What you need:

  • pencil
  • scissors
  • glue stick
  • white and black cardstock
  • color cardstock (we used light blue, brown, dark brown)
  • black marker

Step by Step Tutorial

The Card

To make the card, use a letter (A4) sized paper: either the whole sheet for a large card (perfect for younger kids) or cut in half for a smaller card that will fit in an envelope.

Step 1

Have kids fold it in half to create a card.

Step 2

The Dog

You will need a sheet of brown paper (or other color) roughly the size of the card. Have kids draw a triangle on the paper.

The bottom part of the triangle can be as wide as the folded card (it’s OK if it is a little more narrow).

Step 3

Cut out the triangle.

Step 4

Make the Dog out of Triangle

Gently fold the upper part towards the center of the triangle.

Step 5

Apply some glue and attach the folded part.

Step 6

Apply some glue to the bottom part of the card and paste on the brown shape.

Alternatively, you can apply glue on the back of the dog’s body instead of applying the glue on the card.

Step 7

The Ears

Have the kids fold dark brown cardstock (or any other color they choose) in half and draw an ear-like shape on it.

Cut out the shape – they will cut two ears simultaneously because the paper was folded.

Step 8

Have the kids glue the ears on each side of the dog’s head.

Step 9

The Eyes

To create the puppy’s face, have them cut out two white circles and glue them to the face.

Step 10

Then, they draw two black dots for the eyes.

Step 11

Instead of drawing the eyes, they can also use googly eye stickers or googly eyes.

The Snout

To create the puppy’s snout, have the kids cut out an oval shape from black cardstock and then glue it to the dog’s face (at the tip of the folded triangle).

Step 12

The “I woof You” Speech Bubble

Draw a speech bubble on white paper and cut it out. Outline it with a black marker to get a more cartoony look, and glue it above the dog to the card.

Step 13

It’s time for the punny message! Have kids write an “I woof you” note inside the speech bubble. They can write anything they like really, but we think this pun works out great!

Step 14

The I Woof You DIY Valentine’s Day Card is finished!
