How To: DIY Valentine Photo Cards {Minneapolis MN Children's Photography}

Every Valentine's Day I love making photos cards for my daughter to give out to her friends. We've had a lot of fun coming up with ideas and making the cards come to life. Here is this year's creation which was very simple to make. 

Materials needed:
  • Empty wrapping paper tube
  • White wrapping paper (or patterned paper turned inside out works too!) 
  • Scissors and tape
  • Lollipops 
  • Somewhere to print your photos
  • Envelopes

1. Wrap your empty wrapping paper tube with white paper and tape down the seam. 

2. Take some photos of your child holding the paper tube like it's a giant lollipop stick. This is the fun part - Megan loved looking up and pretending she was looking at a giant Tootsie Pop!

4. Punch a small hole near the top of the stick and insert your lollipop. Viola!

P.S.  Here's our card from last year. Similar idea -  just hold out your hand, make a fist and pretend you're holding the lollipop:
