Glow Stick Valentines

IMG_7150
I am so excited about Anna's "You Make Me Glow!" Valentines for her classmates. They turned out just like I imagined and Anna can't wait to give them out at school next week!

The hardest part was getting Anna to cooperate, but once I got the shot, it was a very fun project for me. Have I mentioned it before how much I love school projects?

Using Photoshop, I enhanced the photo and added text and hearts - strategically to cover the light switch and wall decor - using different shades of pink. And just for the record, I wanted to use shades of blue, to match her shirt, but she wanted pink. All pink.

Then I just ran to the nearest Walgreen and printed 20 4x6 prints.

Luke had just gotten back from a week of traveling, but we wasted no time in putting it all together. He made two slits near Anna's hand and carefully slid a glow stick through.

And that's it. Done.

I am looking forward to next Friday to see what she brings home!

(As usual, this is not my original idea. It's from here.)

  1. These turned out very nice, much better than the previous year's effort. Though I still wonder why we go through this trouble for a dinky little commercial holiday.
