I just got Andy off to school today with his valentines only to see an email reminder pop up this morning in my inbox about a neighborhood get together for the kiddos tomorrow morning. Oops! Looks like I get to make some of those girly valentines after all. :) I threw this together just a few minutes ago..SO easy and I think they turned out pretty cute. I call them lovebugs. :)
Seriously, no fancy equipment needed to make these!! I am so old school I used a cup to trace out the circles, cut out a little free-hand half circle for the head, a couple of free hand strips for the antennae, and used a heart punch, a brad and some black rhinestones.
Glue the head and antennae to theblack part of the body. cut the pink cirlce in half. attach the pink circle to the black cirlce at the top with a small brad. that way the wings will open like this...
and they can reveal your message. :) I printed the message on white cardstock, used a smaller cup to cut around it, then glued it on to the black body. Decorate your wings and curl your antennae and you're done!
I just used a pencil to wrap the antennae around to curl it and give it some dimension.
Do you want a pattern for this?? Let me know and I can make one up really quickly for you. :)
Have a great day!
