Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Since we love Oliver Jeffers, I used Stuck as inspiration for my Valentine’s Day cards.


What you need:


ribbon / embroidery thread

popsicle stick / skewers

hotglue gun

washi tape



Draw out a diamond and cut two pieces, my kite was about 4.5 in long by 4 in wide.

Choose the picture you want for the front and color it in. Cut a ribbon for the kite tail, any size you think will look good. Glue the tail to the inside of the back blank piece of the kite. Place glue around all the corners of the kite, and glue on the front of the backside of the kite to the inside of the kite. (see below)


Cut or break the popsicle stick with one side longer to fit the length and width of the kite. Hot glue the stick on to the back of the kite.


Add washi tape to the end of the kite tale and write a little message on the back.


Happy Valentine’s Day
