  1. Paint the walls of the yogurt cup with red acrylic paint. Let it dry for an hour. You can double coat this if necessary. 
  2. Cut three medium-sized hearts from the red card stock. This will be the bug’s wings. 
  3. Cut three medium-sized oblongs from the black card stock. This should be proportionate to the heart since it will serve as the head of the bug.
  4. Cut three medium sized pink circles. This is the abdomen of the bug.
  5. Glue the head on the tip of the heart wings. Do these for the remaining two.
  6. Glue the pink circle on the rear end of the bug’s wings or at the opposite side of the head.
  7. Add some details on the face of the love bug. You can create some cut-outs from the pink card stock for the eyes, lips, and dimples. Other details that can be made on the wings can be done using a permanent marker.
  8. Cut six pieces of 1 inch long purple pipe cleaners. This is the antenna of the love bug.
  9. Curl one end of the six pipe cleaners and glue a pair of antenna on the head of the bug from the back of the head.
  10. Hot glue the red paper clip on top of the antenna at the back. This should be placed in between the two antennae.
  11. Cut the purple pipe cleaner into 2 inch, 3 inch, and 4 inch, respectively. Glue the pipe cleaner on the gut of the bug at the back. This is the stem of the love bug photo holder.
  12. Create three holes on the bottom part of the yogurt cup using the awl hole crafting tool.
  13. Insert the love bugs on the holes on the yogurt cup base.
  14. Create a bow from the pink gros grain ribbon and glue it in front of the base cup, right in the middle of it.
  15. You can now insert your photos through the clips at the back of the love bug.
  16. Allow this to sit for 24 hours to make sure the glue is completely dry and then it is ready to give!
