Would you LOVE to have a lollipop?

The only bad thing about the girls' valentine's this year is that I have no idea what we can do next year that will be any cuter than this! Super simple and easy to do - I just took a picture of each girl - I had them stand in front of some red curtains - told them to hold their hand out toward me like they were interviewing me with a microphone - and snap! Then I used Photoshop to add Happy Valentine's Day along with their name and the year and printed out enough copies for their classmates. (I bought really cheap photo paper at the dollar store - I did have to cut out the pictures but it was way cheaper than buying the Canon 4x6 photo paper.) Next I just used a steak knife and with the photo on a cutting board, I cut a small slit at the top and bottom of their hands. Pop the sucker in through the holes (plus, I added a piece of scotch tape to back, mainly for during transit in the backpacks and to the classroom) and Voila! - you have the cutest Valentine's ever! They were a HUGE hit with the girls' friends at school.

this is the most adorable idea! I may be borrowing it when my daughter is old enough for valentines (or old enough to stick her hand out when instructed haha)
