Time seems to be travelling so fast at the moment, Christmas has been and gone and valentines day is right round the corner. Handmade gifts are a fab way to say I love you and these valentines lovebug bookmarks are a really sweet and simple make for children to give to their family and other loved ones this February.

You will need

Coloured foam
Googly eyes
Popsicle stick
Scissors
Coloured paint or felt tip pens.
Glue

Start off by decorating your popsicle sticks with paint or felt tips and then put it aside to dry. Next, take your red foam and cut out a circular shape.

Place your red circle about 1/3 of the way onto your black foam, draw around the edge of your circle to create a small semi-circle. Cut out the semi-circle and glue it on to your red base to create your lovebug’s head.

Cut a thin strip of black foam and glue it down from the base of the head to the bottom of the circle to create two wings. Cut out some small foam hearts and glue some onto each wing.

Now give your lovebug two googly eyes!

Glue your popsicle stick to the back of your lovebug and your bookmark is finished!
