toddlers valentine card made with iris folding in shape of a train Valentine’s Day is coming fast. I made this toddler’s valentine card using the iris folding technique. It’s in the shape of a train, given that the little boy who will receive the card  is fascinated with trains just now. I’ve used bright, primary colors, since those are the colors that appeal to young children.

If you haven’t done iris folding before, there is an Iris Folding Video Demon at this link.

The word “Valentine” is created with alphabet stickers, as is the XO at the bottom.

I have given the big wheel some dimension by attaching it with a pop dot.

The tiny hearts are made with a craft punch.  I have added glitter by placing small dots of red Stickles Glitter Glue here and there. Stickles Glitter Glue is available at Joann.com and elsewhere.

Inside this toddler’s Valentine card, I have placed the cutout shape of the train, created when I made the iris folding cut. I have decorated it a little bit.
