I ruff you! That’s what a dog could say for Valentine’s Day, if a dog could talk. A dog can take off with your Valentine Cards, though, and that’s the idea behind our super cute The Dog Ate My Valentine Cards Craft!
Not only is our The Dog Ate My Valentine Cards Craft an absolute adorable Valentine’s Day craft, with an envelope that the dog is holding in its mouth, but we have a free printable sheet of Puppy Valentine’s Day Cards that you can print and include in the envelope the dog is running away with. It’s everything you need for tail-wagging Valentine’s Day!
For our The Dog Ate My Valentine Cards Craft you will need to print our Puppy Template as well as the Puppy Valentine’s Day Cards. You will also need two shades of brown cardstock, cardstock for the envelopes, black paper, heart stickers, medium googly eyes, a black marker, scissors, and glue.
The Dog Ate My Valentine Cards Craft
- Puppy Template and Puppy Valentine’s Day Cards
- Cardstock – 2 shades of brown, colors for envelopes, red
- Black paper
- Heart stickers
- Medium googly eyes
- Black marker
- 1” circle punch (optional)
First print the Puppy Template Printable. Trace everything but the muzzle and ears on a darker shade of brown cardstock. Trace the muzzle and ears on a lighter shade of brown cardstock.
Cut all the pieces out.
Lightly bend the muzzle piece and, about ⅔ of the way down, make a snip in the center. Cut a piece of red cardstock just smaller than the muzzle piece and glue just around the edges, making sure the center remains unglued.
Glue all the pieces in place.
Glue on googly eyes as well as a black circle for the nose. This can either be done with a 1” circle punch or simply cut it out. Detail the mouth with the black marker and draw lines on the paws.
Print the sheet of Puppy Valentine’s Day Cards. Also included on the sheet is a template size for the envelopes. It’s a 3×3 size.
With a sheet of cardstock cut to size for the envelopes, turn so it’s like a diamond. Fold the bottom point up about a third of the way. Fold tip under. Then, fold the two sides over, so they’re just slightly overlapping. Glue or tape in place.
Write a Valentine’s Day note or fill envelopes with the Puppy Valentine’s Day Cards. Seal with a heart sticker.
Slide closed envelope into the puppy’s mouth.
