Somewhere around Christmas time I saw these adorable gifts being handed out using EOS lip care as a Rudolph nose. Adorable. Just freaking adorable. And it got me thinking…what could I create for Valentines! Now we do not lack EOS containers around here. I was first introduced to them years and years ago when I snagged a sample at BlogHer (I think it was BlogHer!) in 2009. Since then I have been a fan. Aside from the glamorous little containers in lots of colors, its pretty good lip stuff too.
Which is why this crafting idea makes a totally fantastic NO CANDY Valentines to hand out. At $3 a container, this is probably not the best solution for a class of 30 kids, but reserved for a special teacher valentine or an exchange among teenage friends, I can’t think of anything better.
As far as supplies go, I bought my Silhouette at Zulily, my EOS at Target, my paper at Staples. You can also get a crafting knife (I know there must be a more official title for this item but I am having a brain fart right now) at Hobby Lobby.
I created quite a few EOS Valentines this morning. I kept trying to new things and came up with several ideas, all of which I hope you love and will appear in other posts as this one has already gotten quite long, and am offering up the PDF Printable and the Silhouette files if anyone wants to cut them out easily. If you use the PDF printable, in order to get a really nice cut you will probably want to use a crafting knife of some sort.

Printables– for these you can print and cut out. Just cut the circle to insert the EOS. You will unscrew one side and put the lip balm through and tighten the top back on. Remember to use cardstock or layer pieces of card stock for the strongest hold to pass out.
- Color PDF file – the words LOVE are in different colors with the circle to cut out
- Black and White PDF file (you can have your kids color in for a personalized touch!)
Silhouette Files– Have a Silhouette machine? You can use my Files to cut these out! I put them on a Google Drive as my blog cannot host the .studio files.
- Color File with just a Circle Cut
- Black and White File with Full Letters Cut and Circle Cut
- Black and White File with just Circle Cut leaving the letters
Now I enjoyed doing these so much, I made a ton of other cute shapes perfect for stacking and gifting! I will be adding these in another blog post. Do not forget to pin, share and USE!
