You Will Need

* Scissors
* Ruler
* Photos in profile
* 9" x 12" construction paper
* Pencil and eraser
* Markers

Step 1: Trim the paper

Use scissors to cut the construction paper so it's 4 inches wide and 12 inches long.

Step 2: Make the folds

Make a crease 3 inches in from each of the short sides. Then, make two more creases 3½ inches in. The extra creases give the card a wider footprint so it will stand up on it's own.

Step 3: Create top face

Using the photo as a guide, draw your profile in pencil on the left flap, so the tip of its nose nearly reaches the edge. Be sure to draw lips that are slightly open. Then, cut along the line of the profile, removing the excess paper.

Step 4: Trace the nose and mouth

Fold the flaps back into the middle of the card, so the left flap, with the face you've already cut out, is on top. With the card closed, trace the nose and mouth from the face onto bottom flap.

Step 5: Draw bottom face

Open up the left flap. Using the photo of your sweetheart as a guide, draw their profile on the right flap so the lips and nose overlap the ones you traced from the top face. Cut the face out from the right flap. Lock the faces together at the lips.

Make sure the faces lock together by adjusting the creases and trimming the lips.

Step 6: Finish the faces

Draw in facial features. Make them look like you and your partner by adding distinguishing features like glasses, and hair color and style.

Step 7: Decorate the inside

Decorate the inside of the card with a funky design, and add a personal message for your beloved.
