Photo Valentine's Cards

We made similar Valentine's cards last year and they were a big hit with the kids.  This year, when I asked my three what they wanted to do for their classmates, they requested these same lollipop cards.  They're so cute and they're fairly quick and easy to make so I happily obliged.

Check them out...

And they're really quite simple to make.  I simply took a quick photo of each kid in front of a blank wall with their arm outstretched as if they were holding onto something.






Then I used PicMonkey.com  to crop the photo, add text and a frame.  If you've never tried PicMonkey, check it out.  It's really easy to use and all the features I used for these cards are free.  (Other features, additional fonts, etc. require a small membership fee)


Then I just inserted the image into a Word Document, put four on a page, and printed them out on cardstock.  I used an exacto knife to cut a small slit at the top and bottom of the kids' hands on the picture and inserted a lollipop stick.  Finally, I put a little piece of tape on the back of the card to hold the lollipop stick in place so it wouldn't slip out en route to school.

That's it!  Cute and easy enough to do last minute.

  4. This Fan Banner for the New Orleans Saint Fan is a great way to show the neighbors who you're rooting for on gameday! This pleated fan bunting is made of 100% nylon, measures a 27"x57" in size, and has three metal grommets along the top header for easy hanging. The NFL team colored panels are ruffled and the insignias are embroidered into our New Orleans Saint Fan Banner which results in a durable and quality banner.dallas cowboys american flag
