  • Card stock

  • Craft glue

  • Wire cutters

  • Permanent marker


  1. First, cut two bumps' worth of pipe cleaner.

  2. Fold the piece in half, between the bumps, forming one corner of the mouth.

  3. Pinch the center of one bump to form the top lip. Close the mouth by twisting the open ends together. 

  4. Attach the lips to card stock with craft glue. Using a pen marker, write a heartfelt message to your valentine.
