    Add a Message

    Cute Thumbprint Love Bug Cards

    We made our bugs into butterflies! We even gave them faces as well. 

    In a different color of marker, we also added the words "Love Bugs". You can write anything you'd like for Valentine's Day! Here are a few saying to write on your cards:

    - Will you be my Love Bug?
    - Happy Valentine's Day Love Bug
    - I'm Your Love Bug, Valentine!
    - Bugs and Kisses!

    Fold Card


    Fold your card paper in half. You'll want to make sure it's slightly larger than the white paper so the pink paper gives the white paper a border.
