How to make your Lucky Ladybug Greeting Card
  1. Using scissors, cut a large heart shape out of the black cardstock for the ladybug’s body.  Trace the shape onto the red cardstock and cut out.  Cut the red heart in half for the ladybug’s wings.
  2. Using the brad, overlap the two red hearts pieces and carefully poke the brad through them.  Line up with the black heart and poke the brad through the black cardstock.  Bend the brad into place.
  3. Cut a small half circle from the black cardstock for the ladybug’s head.  Glue to the top of the ladybug’s body.  Glue the wiggly eyes to the ladybug’s head.  Cut the pipe cleaner in half, fold the ends to form antenna, and glue to the ladybug’s head.  Allow the glue to dry.
  4. Using a black marker, draw spots on the ladybug’s wings.  Using a silver marker, write “Good Luck!” underneath the wings.
  5. Your card is complete!  Deliver to a loved one and watch them smile!  For added fun, fold a large piece of cardstock in half, glue your ladybug to the inside of the cardstock card, and write “Just Thought I’d Fly By to Wish You…” on the outside!
