Step By Step Instructions For How To Make Valentine Paper Bee Craft
Step 1. Print the template provided and carefully cut the pieces out using scissors.
Step 2. Paste the heart on the red construction paper; rectangular strips, triangle and crescent shape on black construction paper and ‘Bee Mine’ on yellow paper. Cut out all the pieces using scissors.
Step 3. Trace the red heart shape on pink construction paper and cut it out. Fold the pink heart into half and cut along the line.
Step 4. Paste one half of the pink heart on each red heart to make heart shaped wings of the bee. Trace the wings with the black sharpie.
Step 5. To make the body of the bee, take two yellow construction papers and cut them into halves. Make accordion folds with three halves and paste them together to make the bee’s body.
Step 6. Paste the heart wings on either side of the bee’s body.
Step 7. Paste the pair of the biggest circle and antennae from the template on the cardstock and cut them out.
Step 8. Glue the antennae on black craft paper and cut them out.
Step 9. Attach the antennae and the black triangle to the bee’s body as shown.
Step 10. To make the eyes of the valentine bee craft, glue the white circles on the cardstock circles. Use black sharpie to make eyeballs on the smallest circles. Finally, glue them on the white circles to complete the eyes. You can also use big googly eyes if you prefer.
Step 11. Paste the ‘Bee Mine’ on the thickest black strip paper.
Step 12. Lastly, glue the eyes, crescent mouth and stripes on the valentine bee. Finish it by attaching red pom-poms on the antennae.
