How to make our heart shaped lovebug cards
Take a piece of red card and fold it in half. Using the folded corner as the point, draw a heart onto your card as you can see above. Remember to leave part of the fold line intact or you’ll end up with two heart shapes rather than one heart card!
Cut out a black semi circle for the head and glue it down inside the front of your card.
Add two googly eyes to the lovebug’s head. Cut out several black spots and glue them onto the heart.
Finish off by cutting out two thin strips of black paper, curling them at one end and then gluing them onto the head as antennae. Your little lovebugs are finished! Add a special message to the inside and your cards are ready to gift!
We have hundreds upon hundreds of pom poms in our craft box and we rarely ever get to use them. This is simply because we have a baby in the house who loves to eat everything and anything. Pom poms seem to have a habit of getting everywhere and like all small crafty items prove a choking risk – any parent of a baby knows the process of constantly scouring the floor for any potential edibles! However, the other day she decided have a monstrously long nap. So, my son and i decided to have our own pom pom making party. We had loads of fun and came up with loads of super cute pom pom pals but this pom pom ladybug pal was our firm favourite!
You will need
1 Large red pom pom 1 medium black pom Several small black pom poms 2 googly eyes Glue (we used a glue gun as pom poms can be a bit fiddly!)
Take your head piece (the medium black pom pom) and glue it on to the big red pom pom which will make your ladybug’s body.
Cover your Ladybugs red body in the small black pom poms, these will be your ladybug’s spots. To finish her off, glue on two googly eyes! how cute is this little one! we loved them so much we made a couple and a little paper leaf for them to sit on.
