Bi-Gum Valentine Butterfly
Cut two hearts from pink paper and glue the
tips between two sticks of red gum as shown in picture. Hint: When gluing the
two sticks of gum together, slide the top piece back about 1/8" creating an angle on
which to glue the head. Use a wrapped candy heart with a cute little face (or a
wooden heart or paper heart) for face. Glue the face heart to the end of the sticks
of gum as shown. Glue antennae to back of head. I used a short string of beads
(or use a flower stamen or chenille stem). Bend the wings upward along the edge of
gum. Add your valentine message to the wings. These would make wonderful party
favors and also could be used in place of traditional Valentine cards.
This one was made for my daughter and the
message on the wing says, "Butterflies are heaven sent like you!"
Someone had asked for a poem, and
in 2002 Monica said
How about something simple like:
You make my heart flutter
That is why I "chews" YOU to be mine!
I think that's perfect!!!
