Valentine Lip Pinatas

Looking for a gift idea for Valentine’s Day? These DIY Valentine lip pinatas are fun, festive, and the perfect thing to fill with your bestie’s favorites!

Valentine Lip PinatasI’m a big gifter. Whether a simple card in the mail, a care package tailored to a specific recipient, or something homemade, gift giving is a way that I like to show the people in my life that I’m thinking about them and that they mean a lot to me. It’s one of my favorite things to do and I’m always on the hunt for fun ideas to package up little things. These Valentine Lip Pinatas will do just the trick for V-day this year. A little unconventional, but oh, so fun and festive!

Valentine Lip PinatasWith Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I was itching for something to give to my girlfriends this year. It is my first Gal-entine’s day after all! I decided to make some Valentine Lip Pinatas to use as a “bag” and pack them full of little things that I knew each of the girls in my life would love. A piñata is used to store candy, so why not take it up a notch and pack them full of great stuff that any of us would want? And, honestly, who doesn’t love a piñata?! Especially when they are this cute! Pucker up!

Valentine Lip PinatasHere’s what you’ll need to make your own:

  • Packaging Tape
  • Cardboard
  • Scotch Tape or Glue
  • Tissue Paper
  • Black Paper
  • Ribbon or Fabric Measuring Tape
  • Scissors

Valentine Lip PinatasFirst, draw out the shape for your lips onto your cardboard. (You can make them as big or as small as you want). Once you have settled on your design, cut them out with your scissors. Trace the shape onto the cardboard again and cut out a second set of lips. (You will need a total of two lip shapes for each piñata).

Valentine Lip PinatasOnce your shapes are cut out, using either a fabric measuring tape or a piece of ribbon or string, measure around the outside of your lip shape. Using the ribbon or measurement as a guide, cut out a long cardboard strip, in whatever width you want. This cardboard strip with create the “middle” or center section of the piñata.

Valentine Lip PinatasValentine Lip PinatasBegin wrapping your cardboard strip around the outside of your lip shape to bend it into the right places. Once the strip is “worked”, use packaging tape to begin securing it to the outside of the lip shape, all the way around, until you have a solid border.

Valentine Lip PinatasCut a small opening into the bottom of your lip shape. This is where you’ll be able to add all of your little gifts and nick-knacks and where your friends will be able to get them out too! 😉

Valentine Lip PinatasPlace the second lip shape on top of your lip “frame” and repeat the process of using the packaging tape to secure it all the way around, ensuring you are matching it up to the bottom piece exactly.

Valentine Lip PinatasNext, begin cutting your tissue paper into strips, about 1-1.5″ wide.

Valentine Lip Pinatas“Fringe” your tissue paper strips, leaving a space at the top where you’ll be able to tape or glue it onto your piñata.

Valentine Lip PinatasUsing Scotch tape or glue, begin applying your tissue paper strips, in layers onto the piñata shell. Start from the bottom and work your way towards the top to ensure even and full coverage with the least amount of tape/glue showing. Because of the lip shape, it is a little tricky to apply them. I wrapped full pieces from side to side and around the edges, and then finished the top and bottom sections last.

Valentine Lip PinatasOnce completely covered, use scissors to trim off any sections that are too long or a little unruly.

Valentine Lip PinatasUsing black paper, cut out another smaller lip shape (the same shape used for your piñata shell). Glue or tape it into place onto the front and center of your piñata.

Valentine Lip PinatasFill them with all of your bestie’s favorites like nail polish, lip gloss, gum, perfume, jewelry, gift cards, or anything else that you can fit in there! These Valentine Lip Pinatas make such fun little packages to un-wrap and are even fun to keep too!

Valentine Lip PinatasThey would also be super cute placed on a table for individual place settings for a Gal-entine’s Day brunch or a bachelorette party!
