3D Valentines

Want to make personalized, creative, 3D valentines for your child to hand out? These are easy and inexpensive.

First, have your child dress in their Valentine's Day attire, and choose a pretty background. We went in our front yard and used a very green plant. Have your child hold their hand out so that it's closer to the camera than their body.  Take a few shots and choose the best one.

I used Snapfish to order prints online.  I also added the cute border. They have a lot to choose from for various holidays.  I chose matte prints instead of glossy to combat fingerprints, since you're going to be handling the photos to insert the lollipop.

My daughter chose to sign her name to each one.

Use a craft knife and make a 1/4" to 1/2" slice right at the top and bottom of the hand. Insert a lollipop through the slit, passing it behind the hand.

Et voila! You have a 3D Valentine!
