Unfolding Love

Unfolding Love Note

Make a romantic printable craft symbolizing the unfolding love between the two of you with a personalized love note.

The note slowly unfolds to read:
"There is... something special... unfolding between us."

Surprise her/him if you just started dating and don't want to be too mushy yet.

You can add "There is always" if you've been together for a longer time or you can personalize each word to say what you want to say.

A heart-shaped bow and ribbon adds the final touch to a visual representation of your unfolding love.

The personalization template PDF allows you to personalize the name and words. Simply print and fold with the detailed photo instructions below.

Unfolding2 Step 1

In Adobe Reader, select File, Print (input page number to print page 2 only) and make sure Page Scaling is set to NONE. Print page 3 on the back of page 2 by reinserting the page properly to print on the back. Since every printer is different, you may need to test print direction by drawing an arrow on the corner with a pencil. Print page 4 normally.

Unfolding3 Step 3

Use the paper clip to score the fold lines. The fold line guides are the green dashed lines. Line up the paper clip on the fold line guide, then place the ruler next to it to keep straight.

Push down and slide clip along guide lines. Repeat for each fold line.

Once all fold lines are scored, use the craft knife and ruler to cut out each piece.

When cutting, keep the cut path slightly inside of the line so that you do not see white around the edges.

After each piece is cut out, place the red ribbon pieces aside for later.

Turn over the personalized paper so that the "unfolding" text is on top. Fold in half as shown.
