How to make a Lolly Butterfly:

  2. Using a pencil, draw a smaller heart onto a piece of thin card and cut out. Use this as a template to draw around onto some patterned paper. Cut out two hearts.
  3. Stick the patterned paper hearts onto the middle of the red card hearts using a glue stick.
  4. Overlap the two hearts and stick them together with pieces of sticky tape.
  5. Take a lollipop and glue on two small googly eyes and draw on a smile with a black marker pen. Then tape a small length of sparkly pipe cleaner to the back of the lollipop bending the ends slightly to make antennae. To finish, tape the lollipop to the front of the card and write a message on the back.
