diy: valentine cards
With Valentine’s Day only a few days away (wow, when did February happen?!) we thought it would be the perfect opportunity for another little do-it-yourself project! Erica, our senior graphic designer, Valentine’s Day enthusiast, and master DIYer wanted to do something unique and different for all of her single girlfriends this February 14th. She thought, what better way to show a little love for her girls than with some DIY, homemade Valentine’s cards…
I love Valentine’s Day — whether you’re single or taken, it’s a wonderful concept to celebrate. I know a lot single people want to hunker down and let the day pass with as little fan fair as possible, but buck up! Don’t you remember how thrilling it was to get a Valentine from your crush in second grade? Sure, they were teacher mandated, but, still, a Valentine from the right person could make your whole year.
What you need:
· Valentine’s card template — download all four adorable designs below!
· Hand held single hole punch
· Ribbon — the colors are up to you.
· Your favorite maracuja divine shine lip gloss
While I design and craft my own cards, I wanted to make this easy for all of you by creating pretty template cards you can to download in seconds! There are four different color options for you to choose from (candy apple red, powder pink, …). Plus Maureen and the tarte team decided to sweeten up V Day with a lip gloss BOGO — buy one maracuja divine shine lips gloss from yourself and get one free to giveaway! What better way to say I <3U than with a silky smooth pop of color on the kisser?
Let’s get started…
Step 1, Print out as many cards as you need — I suggest printing them out on thicker paper, like a heavy card stock.
Step 2, Cut out each of the cards, and then punch holes in the cards on the small circular cut lines.
Step 3 & 4, Choose a pretty length of ribbon –around 12 inches – and it pull through the holes in the card to fasten on your favorite shade of our maracuja divine shine lip gloss.
In order to take advantage of our lip gloss BOGO, choose both shades of gloss before checking out, and then enter code KISS at checkout. This opportunity will only last from February 11-13, so pucker up and get shopping!
And I hope all of you sweet tartelettes have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
