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!
