I know you’ve been waiting with baited breath to see what we came up with for Valentine’s this year. The concept came together for my daughter so well, but didn’t translate as well for my son, so I modified it to something he would think was cool.
Kisses from Kira Valentines
So this is the final product. I started by taking pictures of my kids in front of our red curtain, and did several takes with Kira until I had a picture that really looked like she was blowing a kiss.
I got the idea from somewhere in blogland, that you can put labels on Hershey’s kisses. You want the 3/4″ size. I found printable ones at Office Max, by Avery, and they have a Word template you can download online. I printed close-ups of my kids pictures on to the labels, some text, and we used these fun stamps from the dollar spot at Target to decorate the rest. They are also the perfect size for these labels.
Outta This World Valentines
“Kisses from Trenton” just wasn’t as cute as “Kisses from Kira”. And as hard as I tried to find an alliteration that would work (true love from Trenton, Tenderness from Trenton, Tickles from Trenton, etc.), nothing seemed to gel.
When I saw that we still had this alien stamp (also from the dollar spot at Target), I decided on the “outta this world” theme. This is the kid that had the rocket birthday, remember, so he thought it was pretty cool. This is what his Hershey kiss stickers looked like:
And here they are ready to go:
