This photo Valentines Day card, started with our first 2 years. I actually first published this post in 2012!
Each year, I try to make a new design for a DIY Valentine’s day card for kids. Since we have 4, I ended up re-making these a few V-days ago because they were just adorable.
How to Make DIY Photo Valentine’s Day Cards
The kids love passing their Valentine’s cards to their friends that feature their photo and a sucker.
Making these cards is super easy, let me show you how. First, the supplies. Here is what you will need.
- Digital photo of your kid (see instructions below)
- Canva (see below)
- Cardstock Paper
- Valentine’s Day Suckers
- Scotch Tape
First I positioned the kids outside in good light against a brick wall. I liked the background and was going for quick and easy – so without doing a full on photo shoot, the brick wall would have to do.
Pose for the Photo Valentine’s Day Card
I have the kids position their arms in various high angles.
Shoot a few different shots and angles – that way one of them is BOUND to work!
Edit the Photo
I would recommend just throwing your photo in Canva. It’s free and easy to use, plus has several fun fonts and features for editing your photographs and graphics. It’s super easy to use, perfect for making this
Print the Photo Valentines Day Card
I printed these off on cardstock paper.
Cut the Card
I used an X-acto knife to cut a slit for the sucker to slide in. You can use scissors as well, just be careful not to cut yourself (OMG I just went all mom on you, via my blog – sorry!)
Slide the Valentine’s Day suckers into the slit.
Tape the Sucker in Place
Tape the sucker on the back of the card, this will prevent it from flying out.
Pass Out the DIY Photo Valentine’s Day Cards
Because I am simple folk – we bypassed the envelopes in order to keep it easy, plus with the clunky Valentine’s day suckers it would of been a pain.
That’s it folks, and you have yourself a darling homemade FUN photo valentine’s day card that will be memorable and a hit with your kids!
I made these years ago for our older kid. This always gets rave reviews and is super fun to make with the kids.
