These printable glasses have been in my head since summertime. Seriously! I don’t know what spurred the idea but I’ve been waiting and waiting until it was finally Valentine’s Day so I could make them for myself and the kids. They’re so fun for playing around (I have a secret plan for them and my kiddos on Valentine’s Day morning) and would be super fun as a Valentine for classmates or girlfriends! And if you don’t want to give them away just keep them for yourself after you make rose-colored glasses for Valentine’s Day!

These are super fun party favors, class Valentines, or just playtime accessories. You can also make them with or without the tinted shades (or change them to any color you like!). Fast, fun, and easy. Let’s make some!

Make Rose-Colored Glasses for VAlentine’s Day

Materials

Make Time: 30 Minutes

Instructions

  1. Download the Heart Glasses Template at the bottom of this post. Print, and cut out all three pieces. You’ll probably find it easiest to use a pair of scissors for the outer edges and a craft knife for the inner parts of the sunglasses. If you’d like to use a cutting machine like the Cricut, you can download the file and adjust it in Cricut’s Design Space to just cut the outer edges.
  2. Fold in the small tabs on either side of the heart glasses. Try to fold them so that they create a nice, straight crease and they’re folded at a 90 degree angle.
  3. Use a small piece of clear tape to attach the arms to the tabs on either side of the glasses. Wrap the tape around the arm and the tab, holding them carefully together and smoothing down the tape.
  4. If you like them just like that, you’re done! But if you want to make your glasses rose-colored, continue on to Step 5.
  5. Cut a small piece of cellophane wrap into a heart shape that fits behind the opening of the sunglasses with a little room to spare on all sides (a margin of about 1/4″ – 1/2″ should be plenty.) Affix the cellophane wrap to the back of the glasses with small pieces of tape. We used about 4 small pieces of tape for each piece of cellophane, spreading them evenly around the edge of the cellophane. Do this for both sides of the sunglasses.

Note: If you’d like to print out this tutorial, there’s a handy set of printable instructions down below!

Ta-daaaaa! Does everything look better now? I was so surprised that Henry was so down for taking pictures with these things. He did the whole kissy lip thing all by himself! Maybe he’s seen me do one too many photo shoots? But then again, once you get a pair of these on your face it’s hard not to have a good time.

I also keep trying to think of puns to attach to these if you wanted to give them as Valentines. “Looking good, Valentine!” “I only have eyes for you.” “You make life sunny.” Anybody else have a good one? Hope you try these! If you make some, be sure to share with us on Instagram and use #thelovelysquad so we can see how yours turn out. Have fun! xoxo
