Valentine’s Day comes just in the nick of time for me. Winter is starting to drag on with snow and endless cold. Right when I’m ready to throw in the towel, Valentine’s Day arrives with hearts and pinks and reds and chocolate.
We have some really cute projects in the Tips and Project Center where you can use photos to make Valentine’s Day gifts and decorations.
A photo can brighten up the usual little bag of candy for the classroom exchange. The mini-prints at Kodak Picture Kiosk are perfect for this because you can print two photos on one 4×6 and fold it over the treat bag, then staple. You could even rotate the top image so it is right side up when you fold, but I didn’t think of that when I was making this sample. (Live and learn)
This heart photo bookmark is not only easy to make but it’s quite useful too. Who wouldn’t like to see their favorite little face everytime they crack their novel open?
Add some candy hearts to a vase with a photo and you have an colorful centerpiece for your dinner table or Valentine’s Day mantelscape.
Save a few of those candy hearts and add them to a shadow box for a seasonal display.
You could make this as a gift or for yourself. Match a map of your hometown, next to a map of your sweetie’s hometown and cut into a heart shape. Mount it in a frame with a heart shaped photo of the lovebirds on top. It’s putting your love on the map!
Create a 3D effect by mounting photos cut out as hearts on a blank matt with mounting tape so they “pop” out.
Place glass over a favorite photo in a frame and you can fill-in-the-blank with a white board marker and update it as the mood strikes you.
Wee footprints with a baby photo will melt Grandparent’s hearts or complement a nursery.
Hopefully these ideas will inspire you to celebrate Valentine’s Day with lots of photos and love!
You can make prints for these projects at Kodak Picture Kiosk – especially if you are in hurry – walk out of the store with the photos in your hand.
You can also use the My Kodak Moments app to print the photos on your phone either at the Kiosk or have them shipped to your home.
