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!
This Little lovebug heart card makes the perfect card for valentines day or for any loved one! They’re super simple to make and only require basic craft materials, which makes it a great craft for classes and groups.
You will need:
Red card Black card Glue Scissors Googly eyes Black pen
From one piece of card you can make 3 love bug cards. Fold the card into 3 and cut along the folded lines.
Take one of your rectangle sections and fold it in half. Next you need to make your heart shape. To ensure the card functions, be careful not to cut the folded side of the card. Instead, use the folded side to make one side of your heart.
Next you need to make the head shape of your love bug. We found the easiest way to do this was to draw around the point of our bug then freehand draw the curve. Cut it out and glue it on to your bug.
Now you need to cut out and glue down hearts to decorate your card.
To finish the front of your little lovebug heart card, add two googly eyes, cut out a mouth shape and use your marker to draw on the shape of your wings!
