You Gotta See This!

for last year's valentines we totally jumped on the bandwagon and made the tootsie pop valentines.
i gotta admit. who ever thought of this idea is genius!
they were the cutest valentine's ever and i'm not sure if we'll ever top them.

but we will try.
(the idea for these originally came froHERE. thanks for letting us know Char.)




here are some ideas we are considering for this year. :)

i believe i came across these over on pinterest.
the perfect boy valentine.


2.  I Dig You
so... super cute!


3. I "wheelie" like you.
too, too fun!!


i think i might do this for my hubby. he can always use new socks. :)


5. Don't Ever Change
chocolate coins are the best. :)



how fun!! and super cheap!!



7.  clothespin valentines
so cute!!


8. The Best Crush
another great Valentine using a cute picture!


9. M&M Bottles
i'd love to give these out to all my friends.
they also make me want to redo all my valentine decorations in grey and pink!



10. And of course our
(we also have a few more ideas up our sleeve... we'll be sharing next week)


So have you decided what you'll be doing for Valentine's this year??

  14. I couldn't find an online tutorial for the pop valentines, but I can explain how it's done. It's so simple that it probably doesn't warrant a full tutorial:

    First, take a picture of the subject (child, etc.) posing like they're holding something in front of them towards the photographer.

    You can use photo editing software to add text, etc. to the image.

    When you print them, you cut a small hole at the top and bottom of the hand and slide the pop through the holes.

    You can also mount the photograph on colored paper (like this post has) to add some color.

    I hope this helps - I can't take credit for the idea, but at least I can help share how it's done!
