Happy Monday, friends. It’s Valentine’s week and I’m not a big romantic but it just so happens I have a few Valentine’s themed posts for you this week. I thought I’d kick it off with a simple little D.I.Y. (DIY stands for do it yourself, by the way, I keep finding a surprising amount of people who have no idea what that acronym stands for, which kind of blows my mind, but either way now you know.) This would be such a cute gift for some girlfriends, or if you’re like me you can just make it for yourself. I give myself gifts all the time because no one knows what I like better than me. It’s mega simple to make and I think it comes out so cute.
Let’s get started.
What you’ll need:
One piece of paper (I suggest something semi-good quality but not too textured, like a watercolor paper. I’m using hot-pressed water color paper)
One scrape piece of same paper
Lipsticks in multiple shades of pink and red
Makeup removing wipes
Using the scrape piece of paper I suggest you do a few practice smooches. See what different shaped kisses you can make and which ones look the best.
In the wise words of Beyonce, “If you liked it then you shoulda put a frame on it.” Wait…that doesn’t seem right. Well, either way, frame that baby up! I picked up this gold frame from Marshall’s for the ripe price of $4.00 #clearanceshoppingwin
That about does it. I think these would be really cute as just a single kiss in a small little frame, too (maybe even a cute gift for that special someone in your life.)
Enjoy and have fun awkwardly kissing paper.
I wanna know your thoughts on Valentine’s Day? Are you a hopeless romantic and love it? Think it’s a Hallmark holiday? Do you like to celebrate it with your girlfriends more than with that special someone?
