A Valentine’s Day to Remember: Framed Photos

We can all breathe a collective sigh of relief at today’s Valentine’s Day DIY suggestion, as we’ve dispensed with the need for scissors and cutting. As you’ll note from our previous two entries, scissors and relative precision cutting were required to recreate the paper flowers and heart garland.

We acknowledged that while the end results are nothing short of spectacular and instantly memorable, we would have had trouble with the scissoring.

No such impediment to perfection exists for today’s entry! From our ‘Crafty & Creative Gift Guide‘:

Nothing says “love” more than a picture of the two of you displayed proudly in a fancy frame, and you don’t have to worry about breaking out the scissors or the glue. Chances are you’ve got plenty of great images languishing on thumb drives, SD cards, and computers, just waiting for the chance to be rediscovered. If you’re computer savvy, you can even add some cute embellishments (or give everyone in the photo mustaches, if you prefer). The thoughtfulness of your gesture will mean much more to your loved one than showing off how much money you can drop on gifts.

And we’ll do you one better, you can literally make this gift happen the night before or morning of Valentine’s Day, provided you’ve got a smartphone with a camera or at least a camera from which you can digitally grab the picture. Snap one while you’re watching TV or eating dinner. Snap one in the morning before you leave for work. Snap one as soon as you get home! The fact that you suggested a picture together alone will be memorable enough. Imagine taking it, dressing it up, printing it and framing it.

And for the technologically app-savvy Valentine’s Day virtuosos, here are just a few mobile apps that will add that little splash of awesome to bring it all together:
