10 DIY Valentine Ideas Featuring Your Photos
There are a certain three little words everyone wants to hear this Valentine’s Day.
But aren’t 1,000 words even better?
Use a photo (they’re worth 1,000 words!) to make a Valentine this year, and you’ll say so much more than “I love you.”
1. A Really Sweet Frame
This might not be the world’s most non-perishable frame, but it sure is cute.
Grab an extra box of candy hearts, so you don’t eat all your supplies as you DIY.
2. A Puzzling Prezzy
Let that special someone know you love them to pieces!
And they get to put those pieces back together and that’s fun, cuz it’s a puzzle.
3. Tiny Book, Big Love
Make your honey pie an adorable mini photo book from your Instagrams.
Tell the tale of your fairytale love.
4. Better Than Bling
Who needs diamonds? Drape your sweetheart in photos.
Turn any snapshot into earrings, a necklace, or a grill (maybe, we only tried those first two).
5. 3D Love
The perfect pop-up card for a love so big two dimensions just can’t hold it.
No special glasses required.
6. Analogue Love
Snap photos for your boo, then hand over the whole roll.
They’ll have to get it developed to see your snapped love notes, pics of favorite places and the like.
7. Stand Up for Love
These supercute photo stands, are just the thing for your snuggle-muffin to keep a photo of you close by.
Plus, they’re easier to make than you’d think. Try it out.
8. Photographical Trickery
Take a photo with a hand extended, so you can slip in a pencil or candy.
Mmmmm. Candy. (Can’t wait for the Feb. 15th sale)!
9. Go Classic with a Card
Make your prince(ss) charming a photo card with a special surprise.
Open to reveal and photo and a hidden heart. Awwwww.
10. I Love You a chocoLOT
Grab a heart shaped box of the good stuff and decorate the top with photos, glitter and other trimmings.
Your baby cakes will love it (and you)!
Yes, we googled “cute pet names.” It was weird.
