QR code Valentine card

My 4th grade daughter loves making still motion videos with her and her brothers toys. This year she made one for her entire class as a “Valentine card”. She had so much fun putting it together and was truly a project she was in charge of.  visit her video at http://caleigh.yarianfamily.net

The best part of this project is you can have your QR code direct them to whatever you want it to.  You could do a photo, some kid of art, or a video.  All you need is a place to post the images and a QR code.  There are free QR generators  all you have to do is put the web address in and it gives you the QR code image.  In our case it goes to a website where her video is posted.

The card was simply made in publisher and printed on cardstock.

Easy Photo Valentine Cards

Cute and memorable valentines cards for kids.
I just had them hold their arm out and take a picture.  Then then I ordered one hour prints from our local department store. Using  a craft knife to cut a line above and below their hands and side a sucker stick through.  Its crazy how much it looks like they are holding the sucker.  I had to take a few shots because in some of my pictures the camera had trouble figuring out where to focus.

I had the kids write their names on blank address labels  then placed them on the back.  I was worried they would press to hard if I had them write directly on the photo.  You could add text to the front of the photo or add stickers such as hearts on top.
