These DIY Valentine’s Day Classroom Cards with shimmery envelopes are so easy to make with your Cricut Maker!
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.
Valentine’s Day is in just a few weeks and that means DIY Valentine’s Day Classroom Cards! A few years ago, I created some “you have the write stuff” cards and they were a huge hit. Only thing…I didn’t take pictures. Since we moved to another state, I figured no one would notice the repeat, and thanks to my Cricut Maker…these are even cuter than the first ones!
Now, I use the Cricut Double Scoring Wheel to make the cute Shimmer envelopes. These MUST be made with the Cricut Maker. Learn more about the Cricut Scoring Wheel and why I think it’s the best thing since sliced bread.
This project is ready to go in Design space, so you basically have to cut! SOOOOO easy!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO MAKE THESE DIY Valentine’s Day Classroom Cards:
- Cricut Maker (see why I love it so)
- Write Stuff Coloring Card Designs
- Cricut Design Space
- Cricut Pens
- Cricut Double Scoring Wheel
- White Cardstock
- Shimmer Paper
Please note: I may use some lingo for the Cricut that may be confusing to newbies.

How to Make Easy Valentine Classroom Cards
- First, open the Write Stuff Coloring Card Designs in Cricut Design Space and click MAKE IT or Customize it to make changes.
- After you’ve made your changes, the Cricut will prompt you to choose a material. Choose cardstock for the cards and shimmer paper for the envelopes.
- The Cricut will notify you when to change your pen colors when creating the card, then it will automatically start cutting out the card.
- You’ll next be prompted to change out the blade for the double scoring wheel. Tip: The double scoring wheel works best with shimmer paper. Learn more about the Cricut Scoring Wheel.
- After it is finished scoring, you will replace the scoring wheel with the blade.
- Fold Flaps at the score lines toward the white side of the paper, then glue the side tabs to the outside of the bottom tab.
- Have your child write the “To:” and “From:” before you place the crayons into the slots.
- Place cards in envelopes and label with a sharpie. That’s it!
The best part about these is that the kids can actually color on the cards. That’s the beauty of Cricut Pens!
