Sweet & Easy Photo Valentines

Photography tutorial, tips and tricks

Valentine's Day is this friday!  If you have kids you will probably be frantically running to the store to purchase some pre-made cartoon cards for their classroom parties, wishing you had time to make all those elaborate valentines you've been eyeing on Pinterest.  Ain't nobody got time for that! So I thought I would share how to make these sweet and easy photo valentines from Minted, so you will be prepared next year.  They are cheap, quick to put together, and so so cute.  Plus my kids loved making them!

 Next, simply place a piece of double sided tape to the back of your photo card and stick it to a box of conversation hearts.   I love the Scotch permanent tape best for this.

 Once all of your photos are taped to the candy boxes, cut a piece of bakers twine and wrap it around the sweet little package, tying a bow.

I found my bakers twine at Target but you can find some at any craft store.

 I usually have some left over valentines and love to pass them out to the grandparents.  Its almost more fun than sending Christmas cards!

 (These sweet valentines come with envelopes but please note, they are too small to mail using USPS.  I like to just hand deliver mine.)
