I needed a way to "wrap" two concert tickets, and the usual gift cards and holders were so generic, so I came up with the "Love Bug Box" and buried the tickets in the candy!
It's a cute little paper mache' box, that you can stuff with numerous treats for your special someone!
Step 1: Supply List
Scrap book paper to cover the box
Acrylic Paint- red, pink, black and off white
Wire for the antennas and wings
Styrofoam balls- 2' and 1 1/2"
Step 2: Making your LOVE BUG'S Head
Step 3: LOVE BUG Beginning the Body
Next roll it on the hard surface, squishing the sides together until it has a teardrop shape, as in photo two.
Add a little glue onto the flat spot then attach the head, inserting the toothpick into the body portion- photo four.
Roll a small ball for the nose and three coils for the hair.
Place the nose and coils onto the head and smooth, smoosh and mold to the head. Making two nostrils with a sharp tool or toothpick.
Add a mouth with a sharp tool.
At this point insert two long skewers into the bottom of the body and set aside to dry a little.
