Valentine’s day is the classic day of the year focused on sharing and showing love for your babysitter, teacher, partner, best friend, your kids or even your parents. Buying a Valentine’s day card for these loved ones is great, but you can make it even more special by making a Valentines day card by hand. This simple Valentine’s diy can help you put together a beautiful handmade Valentine’s day card for your loved ones in no time!

What does the ladybug stand for or symbolize?

This year, we chose to make our valentine’s card a cute ladybug. Why is this? The ladybug has a really beautiful meaning in many countries. In general, the ladybug symbolizes luck and is a symbol against meaningless violence. However, in many countries, the ladybug also stands for a chance to find love. The number of dots on the ladybug’s back stand for the number of days or weeks that you need to wait before you bump into your true love. How romantic is that!

What you need in order to make this DIY Ladybug Valentine's Day card:

  • Red, black, and white paper
  • A black marker or pen
  • A pair of scissors
  • Glue
  • A stapler
  • A pencil

Let’s get started! Making the Ladybug Valentine’s Day Card

Step 1: Draw the body of the ladybug on the black paper with a pencil and then cut it out.

Step 2: Draw a circle on the red paper and cut it out. Make sure this circle is just a bit bigger than the ladybug's body.

Step 3: Then cut this red circle in half. These will become the wings of the ladybug.

Step 7: Now it's finally time to write something sweet for the one you care about so much. Grab your black marker or pen and write down your message for that special someone. The message doesn't have to be long, but by expressing your appreciation for that person you will make them happy anyway!
