Lollipop Valentines

Last year I saw this crafty valentine idea...but, it was too late. And, I was too lazy. So...we tested it out this year. This is what you need:
  • a cute kid that is willing to take a picture
  • some kind of computer software such as Picasa, Photoshop, or even Paint
  • Lollipops
  • X-acto knife
  • Cutting map or glass
Step 1: Get your cutie all snazzed up and ready for a picture.
Step 2: Take a close-up photo of your cutie with their hand out in a fist (like they are holding an imaginary bouquet of flowers)
Step 3: Upload your photo to the software of choice. Add in some Happy Valentine's language.
Step 4: Upload your picture to Costco or any other photo printing lab. Convert to wallets.
Step 5: Pick up photos from the lab.
Step 6: Use your X-acto knife and cut a slit into the picture at the top AND bottom of the cutie's fist.
Step 7: Slide the lollipop into the picture slit.

And...wa - la. You are finished.

p.s. once we were done...the hottie said they were kind of scary. oh well...I guess Brady's class got some "scary" valentines.
from this standard picture...
to this cute valentine!
