Bella and I worked on her Valentines yesterday. She will be handing out these ladybug valentines.

We used red and white card-stock along with brads(metal paper fasteners), 4 1/2 ” square of black tissue paper, Tootsie Pops and wiggly eyes. Yes, black brads would have been easier, but I couldn’t find them anywhere. So we colored ours with a sharpie marker and it worked perfect!

If you want to make some ladybug valentines, here is the download for the body and wings.

We placed a little glue stick around the bottom of the wrapper and wrapped the black tissue paper around the sucker.  Next we attached the wings to the body with the brads, then hot glued the ladybug to the sucker.
