Valentine's Day

Both of the boys had Valentine's Day parties at school this year, so we needed to come up with 36 Valentine's cards and treats.  Several months ago, I came across a really cute Valentine's card idea...

I took pictures of the boys in front of a red curtain in our house with their hands outstretched...

...and then added two different Valentine's Day fonts in Photoshop that I found for free on the internet.

I added card stock to the back of the prints to make them more sturdy, and then just cut a slit at the top and bottom of their hands.  I let the boys put the suckers on their cards, and they were done!

They also had to have boxes with lids to keep all their Valentine's in.  So we went to Hobby Lobby to find some non-girly paper to cover their shoe boxes.

Pirates in red, black and white!

Hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day!

Sooo cute!!! I seriously considered doing those cards this year too - but then found out the kids aren't allowed to have lollipops at school (what the heck??) so that was out. Love yours though! And those boxes are AWESOME. :)
