As you know, Pinterest is my guilty pleasure. It truly is like getting a new magazine in the mail every day. Not that kind of magazine, silly! Sheesh. Get your mind out of the gutter!
For me, it’s like Shape, Runner’s World, Better Homes and Gardens, Food Network Magazine and Family Fun all rolled into one happy space. But I didn’t realize how literal that was until I stumbled upon this awesome Valentine’s Day idea.
How adorable and creative are these Valentine’s Day cards? It sure beats the perforated, punch out Sponge Bob stupid pun cards my kids would beg me to buy.
So when you’re flipping through Family Fun and you wonder, “Who are all these amazing moms?” All those amazing, creative moms, dads, grandparents and teachers do indeed exist and can be found on Pinterest. So go follow them (and me too)!
And then you can try to replicate their ingeniousness like I did.
I started with a photo shoot…
…and a tiny bit of tweaking and editing in Picnik (which I will not be happy to lose on April 19) to add the text “Valentine, I’m a sucker for you.”
Then, a few small cuts for a heart-shaped lollipop and voila!
Our classmates’ cards are complete.
Thank you Family Fun Magazine Design Mom Pinterest!
