Valentine’s Day is always a day full of love. There is nothing better than receiving a homemade Valentine’s day card from your loved one. My daughter loves making things for her dad, so this year we decided to make Valentine’s day paper crafts to share.
This tutorial will show you how to make an easy Valentine’s Day Ladybug Card. It comes with two FREE templates to choose from. One is blank which can be colored or used as a tracing guideline and the other is already colored.
The choice is all yours!

CUTE AND EASY DIY VALENTINE’S DAY LADYBUG
- Card Stock Paper or Construction Paper
- Printable Lady Bug Template (found at the bottom of the page)
Follow the directions below to make your own Valentine’s Day Lady Bug craft!
To save ink, print off the blank template.
Then cut out all your shapes from them template and trace them on your red and black card stock paper.
Next, glue your lady bug’s head to the “V” part of your heart and then glue on the antennas.
Allow the head and antennas to dry a bit and then flip him over.
Finally, glue the heart spots on your Valentine’s Day Lady Bug. Don’t forget the hearts on his antennas too.
How did yours turn out?
More Options to Choose:
- You can print the blank version and trace the cut outs on card stock paper for a sturdier Valentine’s Day card,
- Print the color version for a simple and easy Valentine’s Day craft or,
- Print the blank version and use it as a Valentine’s Day coloring sheet activity and then glue the pieces together.
To print your Valentine’s Day Lady Bug template, turn the printer on, click on either the color version or black and white then click print.
I like this version best. While I am working to use it as a template for our card stock paper, my daughter can color her own to keep in her collection. Once complete then cut them out and glue him together.
