Bugging Out!

Time to brush the dust off this un-loved blog! Today I bring you - Buggy Valentines!

I first saw the idea here, at Dandee Designs.
In the last couple years, I've noticed the valentines come home - the candy gets sorted (most of which my boys don't like anyways) and they sit in a bag until I clean out the closet some months down the road.

I wanted to give something that was a bit more fun, wouldn't break the bank, and still quick and simple.

I downloaded the template - then popped it into photo-shop so I could add the line "from Mason" in a cute font.  Maybe next year his penmen ship will be a bit more refined and he'll write his own name.

What you'll need:
  • Bugs
  • Card Stock
  • Glue Dots (I used medium sized Zots)
  • Printer
  • Scissors
I picked up the bugs at Michaels.  They were $8.99 a tube for 18 bugs - paired with a 40% off coupon.

I printed off my copies on blue and pink card stock.  The teacher requested not to put classmates names on the cards, to assist in easily handing out the items at the party - however I wanted to designate the more girl friendly creepy crawlies.

Mason helped me put the glue dots on the bug, and then pressed them on to the card stock.

Here's the finished product - he loves them, even wanted to make extras for all the teachers/helpers/prinicpal!
