Making personalized photo Valentine cards is easy and inexpensive. We live in a day of selfies and sharing our pictures around, so why not give a Valentine card that encompasses that very culture? And besides, admit it, your kids are the cutest kids around, right?
Start by taking a few pictures of your little sweetie(s).
Step 1– Take the photo.
Step 2- Add in some wording using an editing program such as picmonkey.com, photoshop, etc. You can also use photo markers and hand write on each photo after they are printed if you aren’t computer savvy. In this pose I used the saying “I give you my heart, Valentine”.
Step 3– Print a 4×6 photo for each card. Make sure you crop it as a 4×6 before you add your graphics. This way nothing gets cut off when you print it in a 4×6 size.
Step 4- Adhere a piece of scrapbook paper to the back of each photo, cut slightly bigger than the 4×6 photo. This will give your valentine a more finished look.
Step 5- Using glue dots, attach a piece of candy to the front of the picture to look as though your child is holding it.
Repeat steps from pose #1, with exception of using glue dots to attach the candy. Use a 1/8 cm hole punch, make a small hole just above the fist and another hole towards the bottom of the photo. Stick the sucker stick into the top hole and out the bottom. If you can find suckers that are flat, the Valentine card will stay a bit flatter. Using a round sucker, you will have a small curve in the card.
Finish by following the same steps as pose #1.
