3×3 Pop-up Valentines Using Print and Cut with Courtney

Hello Lori Whitlock fans!:)This is Courtney Lee from Court’s Crafts  with my first official Creative Team post and I am here to inspire you to make those last minute valentines for your kiddos! I know it seems easier to buy them at the store… but I promise this is SO simple, unique, AND you can just print them again next year!

I used four different files to create these valentines (and actually two different machines!) Valentine Print and Cut Set 1, Valentine Print and Cut Set 2, Valentine Print and Cut Set 3, and the 3×3 Valentine Pop-up Cards.  I was determined to get to know my print and cut feature on my Silhouette so I resized the digital file to fit the front of the 3×3 card from the 3×3 Valentine file. You can just print them out as they come and you will have super cute valentines! I printed 6 extra for the girls because they were just too darling. Here are the outsides.

After I printed and cut them, I cut them down to a smaller size to fit on the front of the 3×3 cards. The front is actually 3 x 2.75 because of the way they fold. I corner rounded some of the edges and started on decoration! I used border stickers, stickers, and enamel shapes to add some depth and interest.

The insides were too cute. I cut all of the 3×3 Valentine bases and insides with my Cricut Explore Air. It was made SO simple because the different layers are color coded and you can sync them so easily. I moved a bunch of color layers together so that I wouldn’t have so many mats to cut and so the valentines would have some super cute continuity. Here are the insides. I arranged the collage so you could see how they coordinate with the outsides above.

Have fun with the decoration! I tried not to over-think it and I just had a blast. I love that when you decorate the bottom of the pop-up that you also get to see it on the inside of the card. It’s super fun.

I hope this inspires you to grab some of Lori’s adorable valentine files! There are SO many cute ones to chose from and the kids have such a great time helping you make them! My two littles are fighting over who gets which ones! Time go to make some more!:)The SVG links to Lori’s shop are above in the text. Here are the Silhouette File links.

Well, you certainly did inspire me, Courtney! I bought pretty much everything on your list! Can’t wait to start making my own little valentines!
