As you can see from the image below, the fun spring accordion underneath the bear is what gives it that 3D look and feel. It’s a fun surprise for the person receiving the card, for sure! This way they get a cute little surprise and fun element to this simple and adorable homemade Valentine’s card.

Depending on how “springy” the card is, the bear part might stick out a little more than others if you make more than one of this card.

The purpose of having the springy bear as a part of the card is to make certain that it’s a fun surprise element. Situate the teddy bear cutout right on top of the “spring” so that it’s hidden until it’s handed over to them to enjoy.

What is my paper under the bear template doesn’t spring up enough?

If you’re noticing that your paper isn’t springing up enough, you might need to redo it and have it scrunched and folded even more. The smaller you can fold it, the more “spring” that it should have. 

How to make a Valentine Bear Card 

Luckily you only need a handful of fun materials to make this simple Valentine’s Day Card. As you can see below, you probably already have a lot of these at home in your crafting room.

Instructions to make this Valentine Bear Heart Card

Step 1: Print the pattern and cut out the parts. Select colored papers for the bear craft and for the card. Trace the template patterns on the papers and cut them out nicely.

Step 2: Take the head cut out of the bear and stick the face cut-outs on it one by one. 

Step 3: Now take the body cut out and stick the heart right in the middle of the body pattern. Attach the 2 separate paw cut outs on both sides of the heart to make it look like the bear is holding the heart.

Step 4: Apply glue on the bottom back side of the bear’s head cut out.

Step 5: Attach the head with the body overlapping a bit. 

Step 6: Cut out 2 long strips about 12 inches will do. Both strips should be of the same size.

Step 7: Attach both strips together by placing them at 90 degrees from any one end.

Step 8: Fold up the strip on the bottom side, over the strip on top side. Draw the bottom strip all the way to the opposite side.

Step 9: Now the previous bottom strip is on the top side. This time, fold up the current bottom strip and similarly draw it all the way to its opposite side.

Step 10: Continue to repeat step 8 and 9 until the strips end.

Step 11: After reaching the ends of both strips, use scissors to trim the open ends and level them with the rest of the folds.

Step 12: The paper spring is ready. Grab the paper bear.

Step 13: Glue the paper spring on the back side of the paper bear.

Step 14: Make the card by folding cardstock or construction paper. 

Step 15: Glue the open end of the paper spring with the card, on the inside. Press the bear along with the paper spring, against the card to make sure that it’s glued nicely.

Your cute Valentine Bear Heart pop-up bear card is ready! Don’t forget to write a sweet message on the front of the heart! 

Can I change up how this Valentine Bear Card looks?

As with any craft, you can easily make this Valentine card unique! Simply choose a different color cardstock paper for the background or change out the color of the bear. While it’s true that most bears should be brown and always tend to be, who says that they can’t be a different fun color as well? 

Having a red or pink bear for Valentine’s Day sounds like a fun idea to me!

What age group is this homemade card geared towards?

With adult supervision, I would think that any age can create this card. However, you’ll need to make certain that you’re there to help the younger ages out with the folding, cutting, and gluing. Besides that, this can easily be for preschool-aged children on up! 

The best part about this Valentine’s Day card for kids is that it’s 100% free to make. Since we provide the template to you free of charge, it gives you literally everything that you need! 

Take this time to be creative with your child and watch as fun crafting memories are made. You’ll be amazed at how the conversation flows and memories are made as you’re crafting this fun Valentine’s Day card.
