Valentine’s Day is a holiday where we like to show our loved ones how much they mean to us and what better than to make a nice gift for the occasion.

We love making simple crafts, and this one is sure to be one of them – an easy and fun V-Day card to make with a hidden message.

The card includes a pull mechanism that reveals the message when pulled. Your kids can write whatever they want to express their affection on the card, to make it unique.

And as they say, “A special card for a special person.” It is.

They can choose between 3 different parts to stick on the mechanism: a heart, lips (a kiss) and a dove carrying an olive branch.

Ready to make your card? Let’s be creative!

Or follow the step by step tutorial

Print our hidden message Valentine’s Day card template (you can get it at the end of this tutorial).

Color the hearts and the background with your best markers. We decided to go with a blue-red color combination.

Use your scissors to cut out the “sleeve” for your V-day card.

You need to cut out the “window” of the hidden message – fold the template in half.

Fold it one more time as shown in the picture below to get a good grip on the folded “cut out” area and cut it out.

Your front side of the card should look like this.

Use your scoring tool to make neat creases on all the surrounding flaps.

Continue by cutting out the mechanism pieces from the second page.

Apply glue to all the flaps.

It’s time to insert the mechanism into the card. Place the sliding strap between the two flaps – it should stick out a bit, so you can pull it to reveal the hidden message afterwards.

Press the front side on the flaps to glue them together.

Use your pointing tool or press firmly with your fingers all around the card to make sure your card is firmly stuck.

Now you need to apply glue to the pull mechanism (the area is marked).

Place your chosen image and paste it on the marked area.

All you have to do now is remove the strap sticking out of the card and write your hidden message.
