Alan and I do not typically make a big deal out of Valentine's Day. We usually make a nice meal at home, exchanges cards and maybe a small gift, such as candy, and enjoy the evening watching a movie or playing a board game.
I do not anticipate this year to be any different. I however, procrastinated on making a card. I wanted it to be fun and different from the typical. I grabbed a Sharpie, pad of Post-Its, and my camera and went to work.
I started with these 2 photos:
I then wrote out a sticky note with a reason why, stuck it to something related, took a photo, and repeat.
Before getting too carried away, I wrote out these two.
Then thinking Dakota and Jaffery might want to say something...
I then quickly printed all the photos on our wonderful Canon printer (Alan was in the office doing homework, so I had to hang out so he didn't see what I was printing).
I then found ribbon, adhesive, and a couple pieces of 4x6 cardstock.
I first attached the cardstock on the ribbon, making one the "cover" and one the inside of the card. I then attached each photo on the ribbon, leaving a little bit of space between each photo to allow for folding everything together.
Here is what the final product looked like:
