I'd seen last Valentine’s day where these “sucker cards” were made by photographing your child with their fist outstretched. Two simple cuts later, the sucker is inserted and it gives the impression of them handing the receiver a lollipop. I was overcome by how CUTE it was and filed it away in the “maybe I'll do that next year” file. So, the morning I took Marin and Adalyn out for photos I secretly had the idea in the back of my mind. Well, none of the fist pictures turned out right so this is a variation of the idea, which in the end I think I like better. Makes Marin look like the luckiest gal in the world!!!! Lollipops the size of your head! Can you imagine?! (tee hee hee). She chose to give out Dum Dums because they are her favorite candy.
We spent Saturday evening putting these together for her friends. Cutest moment was the first cut with the exacto knife. She was SHOCKED that I was going to cut her!!!! “Oh, Mommy, don't hurt Marin!!!” It took me proceeding with the cuts and inserting a sucker to convince her that she really would like the final product.
