So Valentines Day is coming up and kids are going to want to make some Valentines.  Adults too!   What better way than with the One Sheet Wonder plan!  What I used was 1 sheet of printed 8 1/2 x 11 card stock and 1 sheet each of red, pink and white 8 1/2 x 11 card stock.   Cut pieces of the printed card stock following measurements on photo below.

That will give you 27 pieces to work with.  My card stock was printed on 1 side and white on the other but I bet you can get some awesome designs if you use 2 sided card stock. Next cut 3 pieces that measure 3 x 6 from each of the white pink and red card stock.  Score each 3x6 in half to make a 3x3 card.  You'll get 9 cards from the 3 sheets of stock plus scraps to add to your designs.  Now let your imagination go wild!  I used some heart and circle punchs that I punched out from left over solid card stock used to make the cards.  I also used a few stamps on some rectangles adding Valentine greetings.  Super simple, super cute! 

A much quicker card for the kids to make is the envelope card.  Adults will like making these too just add more embellishments.  I used my envelope maker and used the measurements for a 3x3 card envelope.  You start with a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 piece of card stock of your choice.  Score on the 2 5/8 mark on score envelope board.  Fold on score lines.  If you don't have the envelope score board you can do this instead.  Cut a piece of card stock 5 1/4 x 5 1/4.  on all four sides measure half way point (2 5/8) and place a little mark.  Make a score mark from 1 dot diagonally to the next dot.  At each dot make a small V cut. As shown below.  All 4 corners can be left pointed or you can use your corner rounder and round them off.

Decorate out side and inside fold and close with a small Valentine sticker. Ta Da!  Super simple again!

I'm feeling the LOVE!  I think I'll go make a few more Valentine cards!
