DIY "Stained Glass" Valentine's cards — craft with your kids!

Hobo Mama wants you to know she's a professional blogger! Look at how professional she's being!

Craft with your kids and make these DIY "stained glass" tissue paper & parchment paper Valentine's Day cards! These sweet Valentines are easy and fun to make, and so pretty when they're done.

I was able to wing this with supplies we had around the house, so I hope you've got these or similar materials at hand as well:

  • Parchment paper
  • Construction/colored paper
  • Scotch tape
  • School glue
  • Scissors
  • Markers, stickers, paints, stamps — whatever you want to use to decorate!

They've got a pleasing 3-D textural effect to them that suits the season.

I've included some ways to pop in some easy practice with writing, even for pre- or early readers.

Get your artsy side in gear, and make some cute and friendly Valentines for all your loved ones!

Here's the full tutorial and our fabulous creations:

Variation: If you wanted to keep the "glass" translucent, you could make these as posters or sun-catchers by not folding them and leaving off the back sheet of paper. Then hang as a decoration on your door or, even better, in a sunny window!

Remember: A card cannot have too many ponies.
