I made these for my son, a huge LEGO fan. My original plan was to create a card that resembled a minifigure, but that was way too complicated. I thought of a LEGO® brick design after I remembered the 3-D foam dots I had. It’s simple yet fun.
LEGO® Card Tutorial
Fold a piece of cardstock in half to make a card:
Punch holes in the remaining cardstock. The number of circles needed depends on your card size and punch size; just line up the circles on your card as you punch to determine how many will fit. I used 12 circles.
Attach foam dots to the punched circles. (Hmm… they look like monster eyeballs from a cookie.)
Arrange the dots on the card – “eyeball” it (ha!) or measure and mark the placement spots with a pencil.
Remove the remaining backing from the foam dots and stick to the card.
Valentine’s Day LEGO Card
These little cards can be made quickly by using a store-bought pack of white cards with envelopes (the one shown is 2.5×3.5″). Add a heart sticker to one of the circles, or a punched heart in place of one of the circles. Include a clever note inside, such as “I’ll never LEGO of you.”
I’d love to see your LEGO card designs and ideas for what to write inside – leave a comment and include a link to your card!
