Valentine’s Day is less than a month away and these sprinkles-covered ‘sweet lips’ would make a super-cute photo prop for any Valentine themed event… or any party with a photobooth for that matter!
Alternatively, these lips also make great gift tags or even mini notecards that can be hidden away for your loved ones to find on Valentine’s Day- perhaps on their pillow or tucked inside their laptop, etc. Can you think of any other uses for them?
To create your photo props, all you need to do is download the PDF at the bottom of this post, print out onto glossy photo paper (I’ve used Canon 275gsm Photo Paper Plus Glossy II), cut out the lips with scissors and attach lollipop sticks (can be found in baking and craft shops) onto the back of each of them with tape. Voila!
Have a fun and happy Heart Day everyone!

Here is a super easy Valentine we came up with the other day. All you need is some crepe paper and lollipops and you’re set. We added some “You’re my best bud” labels but these are sweet on their own too.
Materials Needed: Crepe Paper, Glue, Scissors, Tape, Lollipops
Step 1: Take a fold of crepe paper and cut out a stack of petal shapes with the paper grain going from top to bottom. Leaving a long piece at the stem.
Step 2: Stretch out the petals with your thumb to form a round petal shape.
Step 3: Take the sucker and add petals pinching them at the base of the candy.
Step 4: Continue adding layers of petals and add a piece of tape to secure them in place.
Step 5: Cut off excess paper beyond the tape.
Step 6: Cut off a strip of crepe paper for the stem and dap some glue on the end of it.
Step 7: Starting at the base wrap the strip around the stem and secure with a dab of glue at the end.
