How to Make

  1. Lay out two wooden craft sticks on a flat surface and stick together using masking tape.
  2. Repeat this with eight more sticks to create five pairs of sticks.
  3. Take two of these pairs and turn them upside down. Then use the masking tape to stick the two pairs together.
  4. Add another pair of sticks and stick them together with the masking tape. Repeat this until all of the sticks are added.
  5. Use some red paint to paint a heart in the middle of the craft sticks and leave to dry. Then mix up a light pink shade of paint and fill in the rest of the wooden craft sticks.
  6. Once the pink paint is dry, paint “I” above the heart, and “YOU” below the heart in black paint and leave to dry.
  7. Once dry, turn the card over and write “Reasons I love you” and list your reasons in the centre. Then Fill in the border with pink paint and decorate with little red hearts.
  8. Concertina fold the sticks and tie together with a piece of red ribbon.

Top Tip

You may need to trim the width of the masking tape if it overhangs the width of the sticks.
