Valentine's Day is so much fun! I still remember, like it was yesterday, coming home with my school list. Oh the excitement of picking out the" just right" card for your friends/classmates and teacher. I wish that I had some of those Valentines now. I love Valentines so much that I kept each one of my children's Valentines from their elementary years. They are tucked nice and neat into each of their own scrapbooks. Did you manage to keep any of your Valentines from childhood?
I have another Valentine Shaker for you today. It's a Love Bug shaker. He is so excited to mail his Sweetie Pie her Valentine.
I painted his antennae black.

The back of Love Bug. Yes, he is a Ladybug or maybe a Manbug? Do you remember the Lady/Manbug from Disney's A Bug's Life? It was hysterical. So, I guess Love Bug is like him.
Love Bug and his friend Bee Mine.
The Love Bug Shaker is made using the same pattern as Bee Mine. The only difference are the wings and antennae. Love Bug has hearts on the end instead of pom poms.
Have a wonderful night and don't "bee" afraid to try you hand at these shakers. They are really easy. And remember, you could always make them out of paper :)
If you need more in depth instructions use the Elf shaker (Nov 14, 2012), Pumpkin Shaker (Sept. 21, 2012 **don't forget to use the cardboard inserts, I forgot to add them to the pumpkins) and Snowman Shaker (Oct. 27, 2012) tutorials. I am so sorry but my links are not working. I have been having a little trouble with blogger the past few days, hopefully it gets fixed soon.
I would be absolutely thrilled if you shared your photos with me. It is so cool knowing that I can share something that I dearly love to do with everyone.
Have a wonderfully crafty day tomorrow,
