Paper Lipstick Valentines

Paper Lipstick ValentinesEveryone knows I’m a huge proponent of a red lip. Maybe you’re having a bad hair day, maybe you’ve worn the same outfit three days in a row, but throw on a red lip, and NO one knows! Instant glamour. I highly recommend everyone investing in a signature red lipstick. Confession: I still have the red lipstick I wore for my engagement photos…8 years ago. Yikes! Now is the perfect time to invest because nothing says Valentines Day like a showstopper red lip! So in honor of our deep adoration of a bold lip we’ve created Paper Lipstick Valentines! These luxurious tubes are filled with sweet candies and made from a toilet paper roll! Talk about trash to treasure, right? So even if you’re not quite ready to flaunt the red lip, these Lipstick Valentines are the perfect shade for everyone!

Printable Pencil Valentines

Printable floral pencil Valentines

Have you seen the movie “You’ve Got Mail”? If you’re a fan of Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks flicks, this one is a must see. I’m not going to give it all away, though I could recite the whole thing by heart, but Kathleen (Meg Ryan) and Joe (Tom Hanks) meet in an online chatroom and basically became virtual pen pals. At one point in the movie Tom Hanks says he would give Meg a “bouquet of newly sharpened pencils” if he knew her name and address. It was the sweetest sentiment and I’ve been obsessed ever since. So here is my (and your!) chance to live out my “You’ve Got Mail” fantasies: Printable Pencil Valentines! Valentine’s Day is a holiday most often celebrated through the gifting and consumption of chocolates. I have no qualms with that tradition, generally speaking. But, even I can appreciate a candy-free Valentine! School teachers, mothers, and whole-30 enthusiasts rejoice! Whether you opt for a whole bouquet of pencils or a single bloom, these stems are sure to please all!

Embroidered Library Card Valentines

Make a Valentine from a library card

Just the other day we were having a conversation at the studio about getting hit on at the library. The Lars studio is located quite close to Brigham Young University, my Alma Mater. It’s a beautiful campus, and I still visit the library often to read and write without distraction (look at my recent Instastories for more insights). I always choose the same spot to go and study: fifth floor, tucked away in a cubby against the wall, with a window. The window is a crucial component. There are other areas in the library where students go to socialize, be seen, and consequently, flirt up a storm.

So when I was asked if I ever get hit on at the library, I realized: I have never once been hit on while at the library in all my years of schooling. Not a one! I pondered over whether I should be offended or not, but soon decided on the later. I wouldn’t have traded my cozy, secluded, natural light-flooded cubical for anything. That being said, love can be found anywhere, even the library! So we decided to have a little fun and make some embroidered library card valentines! Knot & Bow provided us with these adorable library cards in beautiful colors that worked perfectly! Add a cheeky pun (I’m checking you out… 😉 and you’ll have a library date in no time!
