This was our quick sign for our quickly improvised Lady Bug Café for Valentines Day dinner.
I didn’t have a big poster board and couldn’t go buy one as Nico was sleeping. So I took 4 pink cardstocks and taped them together. Then I penciled the letters for the name, free handed. Don’t press to hard or it’ll be hard to erase, but I erased just enough to not have it show through the paint and enough to still use them as a guide (I have a tendency to shrink my lettering as I write).
For one corner I wanted a little more 3D effect so I used foam hearts flipped upside down and drew on them with a fine sharpie. I made little antennas with a black pipe cleaners cut to size and folded in 2. I also folded the tips to avoid Nico poking himself on them. I hot glued them to the tip of the heart.
I offered him some red heart jewels, he didn’t want to glue those on either. After a few minutes of telling/showing him how pretty it would be, he was up for it. He decided to put them inside the letters, so it turned into a little bit of a letter practice
In the rush I forgot to take photos, sorry.
