Valentine’s Day can be a perfect opportunity to get a little silly in your celebrations, so we designed these printable heart shaped glasses for an easy way to accessorize on the occasion! You are welcome to print these Valentine’s Day glasses for your party guests, or you can even give them out as individual valentines.
Printing Your Glasses
Our heart glasses come in pink, red, magenta and seafoam green. There are two sizes in the download, one for adults and one for kids. Pick your favorites and print onto white cardstock – easy! If you want to use a glittery textured cardstock for your glasses, you can print the template onto regular copy paper, trace the design onto the glitter paper and cut. We used this project as a fabulous opportunity to try out our new Canon PIXMA TS8020 printer from their TS Series. They are nice and compact, so they are great for keeping in our individual work spaces! As you know, we switch between specialty papers all the time, so we love that the TS8020 has two different loaders we can use to alternate quickly. Because we love making crafting as easy as possible, we are giving away one of these fantastic printers!
Assembling Your Glasses
To cut out the centers of the hearts, we recommend using a craft knife or x-acto blade. Once you have all your pieces trimmed, you can assemble them with glue. We used a glue dot roller, but a hot glue gun or glue stick are also good options. If you want to make the glasses a little sturdier, use two layers of cardstock and glue them together. Fold up the envelopes and stick a pair of glasses in each one for a cute and unique valentine! For some extra flair, add some lenses to your Valentine’s Day glasses with red acetate sheets or cellophane sheets, which you can find at your local craft store.
