We knocked out the other two kids' Valentines today.
I ended up going with Candi Gershon's genius "peeps" valentines I mentioned in my last post after finding the Peeps 50% off. I also scored on Pop Rocks at the Dollar Store of all places while there for something completely different. They were in assorted 3-packs. I was originally going to do them as I did for the Fiskars' site, but Kaylen was bummed that only Logan would have photos on his. This girl loves to be in front of a camera. So I modified the design to include a photo for her, too.
I took photos of both kids composed flush left with a white sheet behind them. For the Pop Rocks, I measured the width of the candy and as tall as I could go without covering up the logo to size the photo. I added a text block to the left the same size. Then when printed, fold in half and staple once in the right seam of the candy.
For the Peeps, I measured the front of the package down to the top of the word Peeps. I added a little to the width of the package. This was my photo size. Then I added a text box the same size to the top and added my text upside down. This way once printed and cut, I can fold the card over the top of the candy and staple once in the top seam. It takes a while to get everything set up in the beginning, but then the assembly is a snap. I printed out their sentiments onto cardstock and punched out with a Fiskars speech bubble punch. In hindsight I'd probably make the speech bubbles a different color instead of using a foam dot to make them "pop".
Since I printed the cards out on photo paper, the kids used a red permanent marker to add the names so we didn't need to worry about smearing. It is also easiest to fill in the names before stapling onto candy.
