Homemade Lollipop Photo Valentines!


Have you seen the now popular Homemade Lollipop Photo Valentines yet?

I was first introduced to this genius idea for a Valentine’s Day Card, thanks to Heather.

Photo Card? Candy? I’m game – I just had to try this idea for my own kids this year!


It’s true the hardest part is getting the perfect photo from the kids {“My arm is sore, Mom!!”}. My twin toddlers’ fists could have been closer to their body and since there was 2 of them in the photo – it was kinda squished. But, I do like the result!

Once you have your photo printed, just take an exacto knife and cut a couple slots on the top and bottom of the fists and weave through a sucker or lollipop. Easy!

This idea has really taken off – so many people are making these cards for their kids this year. Personalized, cute and very easy!

Happy Valentine’s Day from My Chaos to yours!

  1. This is the greatest thing ever!!! I love it and am totally saving it for later. Itd be cute to get a photo of me (lol hold on I’ll explain), and send down some sweet treats to my 4 and 5 year old nephews. I think they’d get a kick out of it!

    1. That would be cute, Nancy! I think this idea could take off – personalized lolli’s for a bride and groom, perhaps!?
      You never know….

  2. OMG I’m in love!!! Next year will be our first year of official V-Day cards trading, and I am sooo doing this! Thanks so much for sharing!

    1. They were the biggest hit Cathy – and my kids love them to bits. I will do this again next year!

  3. Brilliant! I pinned this. Not only a great idea, but sooo well-executed! Coudn’t be sweeter! 🙂

  4. Such a great idea! We’ll definitely be doing this next year with both our little girls (since the bebe would then be almost 2! *sniff*). This year we found a blog that had print outs that said “you make my heart glow” and attached glow bracelets. Another great idea. 🙂

  5. Tammi…what a lovely idea and your girls look adorable, of course. It really looks like their little hands are reaching out of the picture!

  6. I love the Valentine’s Day photo cards! I like the way it look as if the girls are reaching out of the photo handing you a lollipop. Cute idea.
