Chalkboard Valentine Photo Card

A chalkboard valentine allows for countless changes of heart. Make the prop out of foam board covered with chalkboard self-adhesive paper. Write a message for one love, take a picture, and then erase it and write another note. Mail or e-mail the photos.




With this chalkboard heart, you can personalize your messages.



  1. Step 1

    Print the heart template. Trace heart onto foam board, and cut out.

  2. Step 2

    Cover it with a piece of chalkboard self-adhesive paper. Place heart facedown, and cut paper around the heart shape.

  3. Step 3

    Write in messages using chalk markers.

    What if you did it on wood so you could hang it as decor. Would also be sweet to add the words MINE and YOURS. I am a chalk artist, you can check out my work at

    I think it'd be cool to take a picture of you holding a blank heart then put black construction paper in the same shape ON the picture (over the heart you're holding) and write your messages in white crayon to resemble a chalkboard. Then you can personalize every one, but only take one picture (also helps if you order a set of cards with one image).

    I saw this idea and ones similar in the Feb issue of Living. Yesterday was my daughter's birthday and to celebrate they went to Mexico. I spelled out Happy Birthday to you xoxoxo on our refrigerator with the grandsons magnetic alphabet letters, snapped the photo with my cell phone and "voice-mailed" to greeting to her! What fun!
