Okay, a good start. But we can do better than that. And that's when the I ♥ You card was born!
What You'll Need
A piece of cardboard (I used a cereal box.)
Red or pink paint
A toothbrush (I used an old one.)
Paper clips (You'll notice from my picture I had to use pens. Resources were limited.)
What You'll Do
Step 1: Fold the cardboard in half, and on one side trace a ♥ (heart) in your cardboard. Cut out the heart. I used a cookie cutter to trace, but you can do it however is easiest for you.
Step 2: Fold the piece of paper in half and place it in the fold of the cardboard, centering the opening of the heart on the card's front.
Step 3: Load the toothbrush with paint. Holding the toothbrush close to the paper, run your thumb back and forth along the bristles to splatter paint on the paper. You can splatter as little or as much paint as you like. If you'd like to do two colors, be sure you let the first color dry before splattering a second.
Step 4: Let the paint dry, and remove the card from the cardboard. Decorate! I just used markers to make a simple I ♥ You.
