It seems that the days of homemade valentines are over, but this fabulous idea could bring them back. It is absolutely adorable and extremely easy. All you need are a few simple supplies and a pinch of pinch of creativity. Actually, you don’t even need any creativity—it’s all figured out for you!
Let’s get started. First, you need to take a snapshot. Have your model hold out a fist and snap a few shots. Try to have a monochromatic background to keep things simple. This photo was taken outside in the snow.
Next, upload your photo to your computer and then use a simple photo-editing program like Picnik to add a little text and signature. Remember to leave room for your lollipop.
Next, print your photos. Take a cutting board and an exacto knife and make two half-inch slits at the top and bottom of the fist. Slip your lollipop inside and you’re done!
You can hand them out as is…
…or pop them into a cellophane bag with some candy and a ribbon.
It’s truly that simple. Take this idea and run with it. I know you’ll have a lot of fun.
