Primary TechniquePaper Crafts


Materials List

  • Construction Paper
  • Craft Glue
  • Pencil
  • Sharpie
  • Scissors


  1. To start this craft, grab a sheet each of pink construction paper, two different shades of brown, and a color of your choice for the background. Also make sure to choose pink or red colored paper for the heart shapes. Begin tracing the head and body base patterns on the darker shade of brown paper. Then, trace the mouth and the belly patterns on the light brown paper. Finally, trace the inner ear parts on the pink paper. Once you’ve finished tracing all of the patterns, grab your scissors and cut them out nicely.

  2. Start gluing the pieces together. Begin with gluing the inner ear parts in the middle of the ear bases. Then, use a sharpie or a gel pen to draw the nose and the mouth of the bear on the mouth piece (the small round shape on the lighter brown color).

  3. Next, glue the belly cutout along the top edge of the body base pattern. Make sure to keep the straight side of the belly cutout aligned with the top side of the body base pattern. Now you can glue the mouth and nose near the bottom half of the head pattern.

  4. Then you will glue the head pattern on top of the body base pattern.

  5. Now it’s time to add the details to your bear craft! Use a sharpie or gel pen to draw the eyes of the papercraft bear figure.

  6. Now it’s time to make the heart balloons! Start by tracing and cutting out the heart shapes from the pink or red paper you chose earlier.

  7. Add more details to the card by folding the heart shapes into half, symmetrically. Make sure to cut out the card. The card needs to be big enough to fit the papercraft bear and 3 or more papercraft heart balloons.

  8. Now that everything is ready, you can start piecing together the card! Glue the papercraft bear on one half of the card. Make sure to keep enough space on the other half of the card for the papercraft heart balloons. Glue two half folded hearts side by side to craft a 3D balloon. For this tutorial I used three heart balloons (so six heart shapes folded in half and glued together). Then I used a sharpie to draw strings to attach each balloon to the bear’s hand. And just like that you’re done!
