Hi lovely crafty friends, what if you can make your cards a gift to keep and or use and be able to send it through the mail?
This week I have three fun paper-crafting ideas you can make to surprise a loved one or your crush. If you don’t like Valentine, you can totally use these ideas throughout the year to make your cards a gift.
All techniques and ideas are shown in the video tutorial. Make sure to watch it to get all the best tips and tricks.

For this card that’s also a game I designed Valentine Hand Letter Quotes, which you can find in my GUMROAD store.
This quote is designed to go with this card, but will fit with any other game that you can add to a card. The pack comes with four different quotes and 4 different colour schemes and 3 different sizes.
With the TicTacToe game board on the front of the card and the cubes inside the card in a pocket, this card makes a fun gift.
A great way to wrap a candy bar is in a wrapper that looks like chocolate. Make it as a box around a Chocolate bar or a few candy bars and make the wrapper to size. Complete with colourful paper and foil to make it look very real.
You can use it with embossing folders, I used Tim Holtz – 3D Embossing Folder – Intertwined below, the one above is discontinued. You can also use cardstock squares and layer them for dimension.
If you want to send it just as a card instead of a box, just make it that way. You can even make a pocket inside to fit a few flat or smaller candy bars.
Another addition to the Gumroad Store is the Heart Of Hearts Paper Pack.
With a total of 16 colourful paper designs you’ll be able to send lots of love
Besides a big chocolate bar wrapper and a chocolate bar card you can also make a super cute small chocolate bar.
It’s the size of a matchbox with a little drawer to add some treats or a secret message. Make sure to watch the DIY mini Chocolate gift idea🍫😍 Valentines paper crafts✨ video, where I show you how you can make it in under a minute.
I prepared a cheat sheet with brief instructions and measurements that you can find in the Treasure Trunk.
