Red and black card
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!

Heres what we used
How to make a toilet roll love bug
Start by taking your empty toilet roll and coating it in your chosen paint and popping it aside to dry. Once dry add two eyes – we used white paper ovals and drew the details on with a marker. Cut out a heart shape for the wings, then fold each side of the heart just off center to create a small section that you can use to glue down the heart shaped wings.
Twist a pipe cleaner around the toilet roll between the eyes and wings so that you have two equal lengths. Curl the ends of the pipe cleaners around to make the antennae.
Finish off by adding some decorations to your love bug! With this one we used a hole punch to cut some little black paper spots to stick on but little hearts look fab too and you can be as creative as you like!
Your little toilet roll love bug craft is finished and don’t they look adorable?

Red card Black paper Pipe cleaners Tape Scissors
Take your piece of paper and place it in the landscape position. Fold the top corners to the bottom ones to split it perfectly in half. Then, cut along the fold line to give yourself two long equal strips.
Secure your two equal strips end to end as shown above and decorate with some black paper hearts or your chosen decorations. Secure the two loose ends of your headband together to create your crown shape.
To make the antennae, twirl two pipe cleaners around your finger or a pencil to create two spring shapes. Glue a heart to one end of your spring and then glue the other end down inside your crown at the top.
