Take your Galentine’s Day party to the next level with these Paper DIY Lifesize Lipstick Valentines!
What you’ll need:
- Scrapbook paper – 12×12 sheets
- Low temp. glue gun & glue sticks
- Scissors or paper cutter
- Ruler or yardstick
Step 1: Measure your black scrapbook paper (or whatever color you’re using for the outside tube of the lipstick) 2 inches across and then use your ruler or a paper cutter to cut 2-inch strips until you have 6 pieces.
Step 2: Measure the gold paper (the inside tube of the DIY Lifesize Lipstick Valentines), 4 inches across your paper and use your scissors or paper cutter to cut the hold into strips – you’ll get 3 gold strips (I used gold glitter – you can use a different color if you prefer no glitter). You can also cut the strips in half to double your amount
Step 3: Next, you’ll take whatever colors of scrapbook paper you’re going to use for the “lipstick” part of your DIY Lifesize Lipstick Valentines (I used bright and light pink, red, a light tan, and a coral) and you will measure 6 inches across. Use your paper cutter or scissors to cut directly down the 12×12 scrapbook paper – giving you two pieces of each color.
Step 4: Once your colored sheets are cut, you will need to slant these to give it the look of being lipstick. Using your ruler or yardstick, start in the corner of your 6-inch colored piece and cut a slant to your desired angle.
Step 5: After all your paper is cut (black, gold, and the colored sheets) you will start to roll them. First, start with the black and roll it until the diameter is about two inches (you can do more or less). You will want to use the low temp. glue gun to glue down the edges once it’s rolled and at your desired size.
Step 6: Next, you will roll your gold paper to be the inside tube. You will want this to be a little smaller in diameter than the black so it fits inside the black. Do the same by gluing the edges down once it’s rolled. Once you’re finished with the gold, you can slip it right inside the black base of your DIY Lifesize Lipstick Valentines.
Step 7: Next, you’ll roll the colored, slanted pieces. This will essentially be the “lipstick” for your DIY Lifesize Lipstick Valentines. Roll these and again, glue the edges once they’re rolled. You will want to make sure the colored piece fits inside the gold tube. Once it’s rolled, you can cut/trim the bottom of the colored sheet to make your desired height for your lipstick (I chose 7 inches, so I cut off 5 inches). You can judge this but slipping it into the gold to see what it looks like and then cutting by discretion.
Step 8: Put your gold tube inside your black and then the colored sheets inside the gold, and your lipstick will be assembled.
Step 9: If you want to fill your DIY Lifesize Lipstick Valentines with items/candy to be Valentine’s, you’ll want to cut out a circle of your black paper and glue this to the bottom of the gold on the bottom side. This will create a closing so candy or items you put inside don’t fall out. You can also just use these for decoration and do not have to close the bottom.
Step 10: If you wish, you can print off little tags to glue to the outside of your DIY Lifesize Lipstick Valentines. Mine said, “Happy Galentine’s Day!, Pucker Up, Valentine!, I Chews You!, and Team Kisses!”
You’ll have the cutest DIY Lifesize Lipstick Valentines that are the perfect shade for everyone!

About the Creator!
Hey, Y’all! I’m Jenna – a Jersey girl turned southern belle living in Knoxville, Tennessee with my husband and our sweet little girly girl, Wrigley (3.5).
I love finding and sharing easy ways to make everyday more magical and fun for Wrigley while adding a little splash of all my favorite fashion and little girl finds along the way.
My days typically consist of tutu-twirling dance parties, princess dress-up costumes, unicorns, crafting, all things pink and sparkly, and eating way too much sugar – all the while praying I’m raising this tiny gal of mine to know that the world needs her magic and that she’s fearfully and wonderfully made.
I’m so glad you stopped by. Come say hi and follow along over on Instagram, @splash.of.southern.
