Disney Sisters: UP Valentine's Day Card from Disney Family

UP Valentine's Day Card from Disney Family

Learn how to make this Valentine's Day Card from Disney Family inspired by the movie UP!

Our family loves holidays. We enjoy making a big deal over each special day. We even plan our calendars around them. Christmas, Halloween, Easter, you name it, we love it! The tradition started with our Great-Grandmother and has come on down the line to us girls. Valentine's Day is definitely one of the most festive days of the year. Any chance to celebrate LOVE is fine by us. Plus our mom's Birthday is February 11th, so while growing up the entire month of February was always extra special.

There is an online Disney destination that is a no-brainer for us, to get ideas for arts, crafts, cards & recipes, especially during the holidays. It's called DisneyFamily.Com and if you are not familiar with it, here are some other cute Valentine's Day cards that will make you a fan: Woody's Lasson Valentine,  Lumiere's Flicking Hearts Valentine, Charm-ing Cars Valentine's.

Last year I made my husband a handmade card that I found on Disney Family. We really like the movie UP, and I just fell in love with this craft the second I saw it. Here are the steps to make this adorable Valentine's Day Card inspired by the Disney Pixar Animated film UP. This would also work perfectly as a Birthday card, or Congratulatory card by changing the wording on the inside. Get creative and just have fun with it . . .  I know I sure did!

You will need:
You will need an 8 x 10 cardstock page
Additional piece of paper or cardstock to make the house
Small Heart Stickers around 15 (optional)
Pens, Markers or Crayons to color the house
Black marker for the windows & balloon strings
Glue or Glue Stick

Print out this page of House Cut-Outs / Design your own house template
(I made this craft last year & it is no longer available online, but I have an image of the page, these are from DisneyFamily.com. We did not create it.)
Buy heart stickers, or cut out small heart shapes. (I liked the idea of buying, because it meant less cutting for me) I got these from the Target dollar bin, (these hearts were kind of cool because they had a felt-like feel to them) but any craft store will do.

Cut shapes that will turn into the house. 
We used 6 shapes here, (since we already had the heart shapes for balloons) including: 
House Front, Roof, Dormer, Window Bay, Window Bay Roof, Chimney. 

Color one side of your shapes, any shade you choose. I thought the more colorful the better, and liked painting each shape a different color. But different shades of brown would work too. (they show that in the online example below)

Glue your shapes together to form the UP house. I used a glue stick.

Draw in your windows and the door with a black marker. I also outlined the house, but you can do whatever you think works well.

Then fold a 8x10 piece of cardstock paper longways & glue your house towards the bottom of the card. (make sure to save room for the balloons and the long strings.) We used white, but the example used blue (for sky) which also looked super cute.

Glue down as many heart balloon shapes as you want towards the top of the card. (I think I used 16) Make sure to leave plenty of room to draw in balloon strings. When you have the amount of ballons you are happy with draw in a bunch of ballon strings in black marker from the roof to the bottoms of the balloons, it doesn't have to be exact.

Lastly personalize your card with a little note to your special someone. Any sappy reference to UP, Ellie & Carl, the sky, or flying will do! 
This was my husband's Valentine's Day card last year I put, "You make my heart soar!"

Happy Valentine's Day...

You make our hearts soar!

with love, 
Disney Sisters
