A bunch of blogging moms decided to have their kids exchange Valentines (see Valentines Day swap) and it turns out this was Nico’s firsts Valentines he got. So I wanted to make a keepsake for him of it all, so while talking about it with my mother, she suggested a frame which I thought was a great idea! I also asked all the moms to send me a pic of their kids so I could match it to the Valentines (some moms do not want the photo/name of their kids online, which is fine, I respect that and it’s why you see black areas in the finished photo).
If you have 30 minutes you can make this! (That includes printing time with a finicky printer!) It’s really simple, I got a simple white frame at the thrift store, flipped the photo that was in there and used the white back. Then I just arranged them the way I thought it looked nice, rolled up scotch tape in the back of the Valentines and photos, wrote the names, put it all back in, cleaned the window and done! Printing everyone’s photos actually took longer, lol (I wrote the lines about the printing 2 days before I made the frame and it turned out I had printer problems and it did take me longer to print than arrange them, lol) Here Nico is looking at his Valentines frame after his nap, which was a surprise for him. When he first saw it he had a big smile, so I think it was a hit
