But before I get to that...I had a lot of questions about how I applied the wrapping paper to the wall in my last post...I did it the same way as I did the first time (you can read about it by clicking the link about gift wrapped walls in the post) I used my staple gun. I just stapled the paper around the edges, and a couple of times in the middle. Because the space I was covering was relatively small, it worked like a dream, and it's easy to remove, which is important because this is a rental house.
Okey dokey, now on to the cards.
I saw this very cute idea floating around blogland last year, and mentally filed it away to use for this year's Valentine's cards.
So first things first, I took photos of each of the four kiddos with one hand extended in a fist. (They are wearing their Sunday clothes because I grabbed them right after we got home from church...not a bad idea...their hair was combed, their faces were clean, they looked presentable.)
Then I used Picnik.com to add borders and text to each.
I poked holes in each card at the top and bottom of each child's fist. And then the five of us had fun putting lollipops on each card by weaving the sticks through the holes.
Didn't they turn out ADORABLE?!? (If I do say so myself.)
