  1. Trace or stencil your heart design onto the contact paper using your marker.  Since we had close to 50 people in the exchange, I made fifty hearts.
  2. Pick out coordinating washi tape.
  3. Apply washi tape over your design using whatever pattern you desire.  I chose to do a diagonal but you could do vertical or horizontal too.
  4. Cut out each heart.  I was very careful not to cut ON the line but just inside the line so the marker didn’t show through.
  5. Once all the hearts are cut out, carefully peel off the backing of the contact paper.  You have created your own washi tape sticker!
  6. Place on your card!

I bought a pack of blank bi-fold cards at Michael’s and printed up the inside of the card!  {I even included my blog signature!}

I just love how they turned out!  Of course, you could do this easily with a die-cutting machine but I wanted to create something that EVERYONE could easily make!

Have you finished your Valentines yet?

    I have paper left over but I think I have finished all my valentines! Thanks for sharing a new perspective by going back to basics a little with this SUPER CUTE valentine card idea! Would work on a postcard for school too… just print before you adhere the hearts! Love the ideas this tutorial spawned! Thanks for inspiring me without using my cricut! lol Kathi

    So cute! I will definitely be trying this out! I have been having trouble figuring out how to print on my blank cards that I purchased. Any tips or advice? Thanks!

      I set it up to be used for regular paper. I’m unsure how to work it for a card format. I’m so sorry!

    What I want to know is how you get that contact paper to stay flat? Because it always comes in a roll and I have to fight with it lol.
