Valentine’s Day is almost here again, and it’s time to start planning all those elaborate crafts and projects to maintain your superhero mom status! Or you can skip all the planning and still look like a hero with this easy Valentine’s Day printable keepsake. All you need is a photo, printer, glue and an ink pad!
Materials: Valentine’s Day free printable (Tall Printable Valentine’s Keepsake or Wide Printable Valentine’s Keepsake), 4″ x 6″ photo, glue dots or glue, non-toxic ink pad
Choose the Valentine’s Day printable that is the same orientation as your photo, and print it out. I printed mine on letter size, semi-gloss photo paper I picked up at our local office supply store. You could also have it printed as an 8″ x 10″ at a photo kiosk.
Center your photo in the outlined photo frame, and glue it down. I prefer glue dots over glue to eliminate drying time and ensure that the photo won’t warp from being damp. Then grab your little one, press his or her thumb on the ink pad of your choice and create a thumbprint after each X on the printable to create the O’s in the XOXO.
It’s really just that simple! The kids will be so proud of their masterpieces, and you’ll still have lots of time to enjoy a nice heart-shaped box of chocolates with your littles. A few years from now, you’ll love to look back at your keepsake and marvel at how small they once were.
This Valentine’s Day printable keepsake would be a perfect addition to a scrapbook, or you could put it in a frame for a sweet grandparent’s gift. Hope you enjoy an amazing Valentine’s Day and make lots of love-filled memories!
This is just the cutest Christy! I love it and look forward to trying it with my kiddos! – M
