Recycled Valentine’s Day Pop Up Card

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. This year make your sweetheart a pop up Valentine’s Day card from old magazines & cardboard. Here is a great video tutorial for making your own Valentine’s Day card.

Ok – so there are a couple of supplies in the video that need a little greening up to make this a really eco-friendly craft. First, it looks like she’s got a brand new envelope, but I’m sure you could round up a used one or otherwise, any light, scrap cardboard like cereal boxes, beer boxes, or frozen food containers.

Also, I’m not a big fan of spray adhesives. You might use a glue stick, or a more eco-friendly product like Ecoglue.

If you don’t have any magazines lying around, get creative…you can really use anything like old posters, books or even junk mail.

Show your love this year to all your friends & family with this DIY Valentine’s Day Pop Up Card…They’ll love it!
