Step 5.

Unfold your paper. You should have four sections separated by three creased lines. Fold that third creased line all the way on the right, towards the middle crease, tucking the extra paper underneath. This creates a unique accordion type fold as shown.

Step 7.

To make this card interactive, draw a large heart in the center of the card, with the middle of the heart on the opening of the card.  We also wrote the phrase “Share this Valentine with some you love because…” on the front.

Step 8.

Once you have completed the front of the card, open the card so that it is flat.  Draw the inside of the card. We grew 2 halves of the 2 hearts on the creases. We also wrote the phrase “Two is better than one” inside. Make sure to finish with your Valentine’s message and sign your name!
