Chocolate Caterpillar Love Bug on a Leaf Valentines Tutorial

I just love how this little guy has his mouth stuffed with a heart-shaped bit of leaf.

Green cardstock, googly eyes, pom poms, scissors, and sixlet candies on a white marble background.

Materials for Love Bug Caterpillar Valentines:

Piece of folded green paper, green paper cut into a leaf shape, scissors, and heart shaped paper punches on white marble background

Fold each long side of the green cardstock until the edge meets the center.  Cut a leaf shape, with the fold as the center of the leaf.  You can get 4 good-sized leaves out of one piece of cardstock.   Use a heart-shaped punch to make heart-shaped holes that the caterpillar has eaten through the leaves.

Glue the sixlets in place as the body of the caterpillar.  I'm linking to the sixlets I used on Amazon, but I actually bought them at the dollar store, and it's WAY less expensive to buy them at the dollar store.  Look there first.  Add a pom pom head and some googly eyes.  Use the punched-out heart shape if you want your caterpillar to be munching on a lovely snack.
