  • First cut your red tissue paper into small squares.
  • Put a good amount of glue all over the paper plate. Have your child place the tissue paper pieces on top of the glue, until the plate is completely covered.
  • While your child is doing that, cut out the other “Love Bug” embellishments. Think eyes, wings, antennas etc.
  • To finish off the craft – staple/glue on the cardstock pieces to the paper plate. Then let it dry completely before displaying proudly!
