{You're a Great Catch} Valentines

These are my son's valentines from last year

I loved how they turned out and they were really easy to do!

The hardest part was getting him to hold the fishing pole in the right place for the picture.

Once I got that, I added some text to the image and had enough prints for everyone in the class printed at Costco in 4" x 6".  I clipped the corners and then glued them to cardstock cut to 6" x 8".

Add the Swedish fish and you're done!  I originally made them with chocolates that I made in the shape of a fish mold, but then remembered that our school is nut-free (the chocolate I used had traces of nuts in it).  Doh!  The Swedish fish saved the day though.

Now I need to start working on this year's valentines!  Maybe I'll blog about them next year.  Do you have any good ideas for valentines this year?

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love this idea!!! I'm not sure the new school my son attends does Valentine's in middle school. We shall see!

  2. What a fun way to personalize Valentines! Swedish fish are a huge hit with most everyone I know, so I'm sure they loved the treat, too! Love this idea!

  3. I love Swedish Fish! Thanks for a great idea!
