Instructables

Step 1: Getting your materials together

Picture of Getting your materials together
You will need:

- Card - A4 size
- Scissors
- Pencil - a light one that you can rub out or colour over so it won't show
- Ruler

This card requires you to be able to draw a face. So if you aren't sure of your artistic abilities you might also want the template below. Or, in its original size, here: http://www.instructables.com/files/orig/F2V/H9LP/FCTI5KUQ/F2VH9LPFCTI5KUQ.bmp

Step 2: Cutting and folding the card

Lay the sheet of A4 paper in front of you longways, like a landscape painting, and cut a strip about 12cm (about 4 3/4") wide.

Now measure about 8cm ( roughly 3") in from one end and draw a line across the strip. Draw another line about 1cm (a little less than 1/2") further along. Do the same from the opposite end of the strip.

Now crease the innermost lines by folding the edges of the strip into the middle. Unfold the card and then do the same with the outer lines, except this time leave the edges folded into the middle.

Thanks for the great idea! I used a real photo of us kissing for the card since I'm not the best drawer :)

OK...here's the old folks version of your card...please note the granny "diamonds" on my eyeglasses!  LOL
OK, what am I doing wrong that my pic didn't post???

How did you go about posting it?
I went to add images, then (upload, My computer) and Browse.  My pic uploaded and had the word "add" under it.  I clicked on "add" which I assumed would add it to the post, but apparently it didn't. 

The "upload" tab has a box in the center and, in orange writing says "Upload new images/files using the Browse button above"...but the Browse button is NOT above, it's below.  Not that that should change whether something uploads or not. 

Now, if I try to re-upload the card, it's apparently somewhere in the system because it says "kiss card.jpg" and then [remove} in orange which seems
to suggest the pic is there somewhere.  There's a small circle to the left of the words "kiss card.jpg" that looks as if you are supposed to click on it, but it's greyed out and can't be clicked.  When I go to "my library" it's empty.

Hmm. I don't know what's wrong there. I get an option to try the new flash uploader. Perhaps that will work.

If that fails then you could upload it to something like imageshack and then post a link on here.


this is great! i'll give this to my girlfriend who says she wants "nothing" for her birthday..
Yeah it shoud say..."I couldn't find any nothing , so I made this for you"

Good point...I'm just losin my creative touch I guess...I was just thinking "crappy hallmark stuff" Probably because they managed to brainwash me at such a young age O.O

 Very good idea for a card. Just made one myself. 
Helixthecat (author) 4 years ago
Wow! I never thought I'd get so much interest in my card, not to mention two years after posting it!

Thanks for all your great comments everyone. The photos are especially neat.

If you made one for this year I hope it goes down well with your significant other.

I make cards for all occasions for my family and friends and have been stressing on a card idea for hubby for Valentine's day...none of my ideas seem "just right".  Then lo and behold, Instructables and YOU come along to save the day!

GREAT card...I can't wait to make it this afternoon!  (BTW, this old gal has been married for 41 years and STILL likes to kiss my old man!)

 Thank you so much! This was a memorable addition for the v-day gift I will be giving to my partner this year!   :-D
This would be awesome, but, im cursed or somthin... because i always get dumped EXACTLY one week before Valentines Day...I guess I could make one for my Companion Cube...or my dog...or somthin...
I absolutely love this!  I've made one for my hubby who is currently in Haiti with the Canadian Navy and won't be back until March (I guess I'll just have to save it until then).  The template is great because it gives you a place to start.  Way to go!

Ahh, I wish someone had sent me one of these. This is a lovely idea :). Maybe next year.......xx

nice! i'm making one right now. after i'm done, i'll post a pic.
Here it is! I used white cardstock paper, and constructed it a little differently. I used little paper hinges underneath instead of folding it over. It looks pretty good, if you can tell. It's based on the photo we took a few years ago.
