Valentine’s Day Photo Shoot Tutorial

Valentine’s Day, the sweetest time of the year is just around the corner. I heart this adorable idea, inspired by Pinterest and just perfect for someone you love this year.

You certainly do not have to be a crafty extraordinaire to undertake this project. This is one of these simple craft ideas, where you just let your creative flair take over. There are no templates to print, no rules or restrictions, just your imagination, some paper, scissors and tape (although secretly I prefer some good old fashioned blu tack.) It always helps, of course, to have a nice clean wall or backdrop for your photography.

What you’ll need:

Red cover paper
Blue Tack / Tape
Camera or phone to take that precious snapshot


First things first, get snipping and create a range of love hearts. Depending on your desired outcome, they can be uniform in shape and size if you wish to, or mix them up for some artistic design.

Cut out paper hearts

Then find yourself a suitable backdrop, this could be a wall in your home, a whiteboard in the classroom or a photographic backdrop in a studio. Arrange your love hearts, thinking about your little model having cupped hands, raised slightly in the air, to blow kisses out to the one they love.

Get that camera ready, one, two, three, Happy Valentine’s Day.

The final product

Why not give this easy photo shoot a try? We’d love to see your creations! Post your photo on Instagram and tag @madeit to share it with us.
