Making the clover:
Take each chenille stem and bend in the ends a little so the wire won’t poke
you. Glue a heart to each end. It easier to paint the hearts when you can hold
Paint each of the hearts with the green paint. Let dry. When the hearts are dry,
gather the hearts together with the points in the center and twist the chenille
stems together to form the clover.
Making the lady bug:
Using the 1/4” hole puncher, punch out one circle from the scrap of red
cardstock. Place the red circle onto the mini glue dot but do not remove the
glue dot from the protective sheet. Use the Micron Pigma marker to color half
of the circle black. On the other half draw a line down the middle and make
some dots. When the green hearts are dry, place the lady bug onto a heart.
Curl the end of the chenille stem a little. If you want to wear the clover, glue
a pin back behind.
