Valentine’s Day comes at the same time every year, and every year I hustle to make classroom valentine’s for the kiddos! What can I say, I’m a chronic last minute crafter! 

The good news is that I have lots of practice coming up with easy last-minute valentine projects like these lollipop valentine cards. With the help of the Canon Selphy Square QX10, these are super quick and easy to assemble but they look like lots of planning went into them! 

The Canon Selphy Square QX10 is a super portable photo printer that prints 2.7” x 2.7” sticker photo prints! Yep, you heard me…STICKERS! Another cool feature of this portable printer is that the paper and ink come packaged together! 

For these lollipop valentines, we snapped a quick pic of Markus with a phone. Then, I used the Canon Selphy app to edit the photo and add some cute elements like heart images on his tee and a speech bubble with text that says “Happy Valentine’s Day!” There are a ton of editing options within the app that result in a super professional photo that you can create really quickly from your phone or mobile device. 

Here’s a step by step look at how I created these adorable treats: 

Step 1: Open the photo in the Canon Photo Layout app and use the options to create custom edits to your photo. For your photo, ask your kiddo to simply stand up straight and hold out a fist in front of them. Easy enough, right?!
Step 2: Print out the photo using the Canon Selphy QX10. 
Step 3: Now for the fun part! Peel off the backing of the photo to reveal the sticker!
Step 4: Adhere the photo to a piece of cardstock, then use a craft knife to cut two slits – one above the hand and one below
Step 5: Slide a lollipop through the slits
Step 6: To hold the lollipop securely in place, you can use washi tape or a sticker! For my valentines, I used the washi tape prints from the Sending Love Planner Bundle from YayDay Paper Co. , which I printed on my Canon PIXMA TS9521C Crafting Printer! 

That was so easy, right?! The hardest part of the project is getting your hands on the lollipops, which you can quickly find at the grocery store! 

I absolutely love how personalized these lollipop valentines are without having to break the bank of a custom order that will take weeks to arrive! For last minute crafters like me, this project makes you look like a super-star …even if you’re up making them on the night before the classroom Valentine party! 

Keep on crafting with these other posts
