DIY Personalized Candy Holder Valentines

I have seen this idea so many times all over Pinterest that I am not even sure who to give credit to!  I keep running across the photos, so if you are the originator of this idea then by all means, send me the link to your blog post.  If you are looking for a quick, cheap and easy way to create your own Valentines then this is the way to go!  Not to mention, mine were FREE!  That’s right.  If you have never used the photo account at CVS then you automatically receive 25 free 4×6 prints!

Personalized Candy Holder Valentines

What you will need:

  • Photo of your child holding their arm out (as if holding a stick)
  • Suckers of choice
  • X-acto knife
  • Photoshop or you can use (which is sadly shutting down in April)
Once you have a photo of your child holding their arm out you are going to want to put some personalizations on the card.  You can use your photoshop or photo editing program or you can use which is free (until April).  I added hearts, borders, “Happy Valentine’s Day” and “Love, Graham”.  Make sure to resize the pixels of your picture so that they work with a 4×6 photo (1800 x 1200 pixels).  Print these out in a 4×6 size.  I received free prints by opening a CVS photo account.  Once the photos are printed just use your X-acto knife to cut two slits at the top and bottom of the hand in the picture.  Insert your sucker and you are good to go!
