Homemade Valentines {“POP” Shots}

While taking care of our grands in WA, we made some Valentines together.  They are a snap to get ready for the parties ahead.  

After taking a picture holding an imaginary lollipop, upload your photo to your favorite edit page, I used Picnik.  Add borders, text and stickers and send them off to a photo developer.  It ran about $3.00 per photo for 25 @ Costco, and they were ready in a hour.   Jake, Shelby and Lizzy selected their lollipops for their friends.

I cut a small slit above and below their hand with my exacto knife where we slipped in the lollipop and they are all ready for the big day!  No cutting, no glue, no mess, give ’em a try.

    What a great idea for fantastic Valentine cards. I see that my daughter, Erin, (above)already discovered them. I would have sent her this post otherwise. There is still plenty of time to put this together. Thanks for a super idea.

    So very, very cute! It takes personalization to a whole new level Ü and “holding” the candy stick is just toooo cute Ÿ

    Thanks Jennifer. I actually made them with friends several years ago. I did not get the idea online, I just shared it!

    Maybe you and your friends were the actual original idea makers after all 🙂 Cool!
