Decorate a popsicle stick as your pal of choice. Clothes can be cut out of construction paper and glued directly to the stick.2Picture by Elena PinskyOnce all glue has dried, stick your pal into the pocket and write a spirited message on the shirt itself. This is the perfect Valentine for a cherished friend.

In the middle of the folded side, cut a tab about an inch thick that tapers in. 4Picture by Elena PinskyPush the tab in the opposite direction so that it remains hidden when the paper is folded. Cut the shape of a heart around the tab. Be sure leave a part of the folded edge on the top part of each side of the heart so that the card will be able to open.5Picture by Elena PinskyCut out the form of a much smaller heart and write a message on it. Open the paper and you will see that the tab, which juts inward, is formed in two parts. Glue the bottom tip of the smaller heart onto the bottom part of the tab. Once the glue has dried, the card can be further decorated. When your recipient of choice opens the card, your message will pop out. 6Picture by Elena Pinsky
