More Homemade Photo Valentine's!

 Here are four more ideas for homemade Photo Valentin's!

Tips for taking Photos:
When taking the pictures for these Valentine cards you will need to have your child hold there open hand or closed fist, almost straight out in front of them.   The closer the hands are to the camera the bigger they will be in the picture.   Big hands allow more room for the treats to fit in their hands.

Download your pictures onto your computer and use a photo editing software to crop or dress up the look of your photo if desired.  Print your pictures 4x6 at a one hour photo or print them off at home.



Photo #1  (Boy Holding Bag)

-Use a hole punch to punch holes above and below the the fist.  
-Carefully pull the bag through the two holes.  
-Tie a bow around the bag below the fist.
-On the back side of the photo, tape the exposed part of the bag to the back of the photo. 
*DONE*

Photo #2 (Two hands holding heart)

-You'll want to use both hands to hold those bigger treats like sugar cookies and such.
-All you do is tape or hot glue the treat to the hands.  EASY!
*DONE*



Photo #3 (One hand holding heart)

-You'll want to use this picture to hold smaller treats, like chocolate hearts etc...
-Just like photo #2, Tape or hot glue the treat in the hand.   Simple!
*DONE*

Photo #4 (Girl holding string of treat bag)

-You'll want to use this one if the treat bag is to large to fit through the hole punch, as in photo #1.
-Use an exacto blade to make slits above and below the fist. 
-Thread the ribbon through the slits and tie knot in the top of ribbon.  That's it!
*DONE*

And that's all there is to it!  A truly sweet personal Valentine!
