DIY Scratch off Photo Valentine

Posted on


Hey…doesn’t that picture look familiar? Lol. A good crafter makes use of what she has! Anyway, I love this Valentine because it gives you the element of surprise. Just give your sweetie a coin and let them uncover your surprise message/photo. Wouldn’t it be super sweet if someone used this valentine as a proposal?


Here’s what you’ll need:

  • glossy picture
  • black acrylic paint
  • masking tape
  • hand soap
  • bowl
  • paint brush
  • sharpie
  1. Place masking tape around the edges of your photo (to mimic a polaroid) and tape to a piece of paper.
  2. Mix the arcylic paint with the hand soap (2 parts paint/1 part soap)
  3. Paint the photo. Let it dry about an hour.
  4. Paint another layer of the paint/soap mixture. Let it dry completely.
  5. Remove tape and write “Scratch Me!” at the bottom of the photo.
  6. Give your sweetie a coin and scratch off!
