Love bug valentines card craft for kids

Share the love with these adorable heart shaped lovebug cards!

Looking for a simple last minute valentines day or mothers day card? Then look no further! We love these cute little lovebug cards, not only are they super quick to make but they’re great for crafting on a budget too!

This valentines day we’re planning on cuddling up with some snacks and a family movie. What are your family’s plans this valentines day? Do you have any fun valentines traditions? We’d love to hear about them!

Here’s what we used

  • Red and black card
  • Googly eyes
  • Scissors
  • Glue

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!
