I have something against those valentines you buy in the box at Target that include "one free teacher" valentine and have cheezy sayings and goofy characters on them. I loved them when I was little, and I know the kids do too, but I'm just picky that way.
For my little guy's first Valentine's day I created a picture Valentine for him, with a cute black and white picture of him that I made look like a Valentine and I took them to Target and printed a bunch of copies and bought envelopes from Michael's and slipped them into his classmate's cubbies. All of the moms loved them!
This year, I've put together this cute little card for his classmates and to send to family.
Want one too? Send me a pic and your kid's "classified ad" and I'll put something together for $15.00. Each design will be a little different, with different colors and graphics. I'll send you the high-res graphic and all you'll need to do is print them! And feel free to be inspired by mine to create your own too!
