How to make a Papercraft Ladybug
Select red and black colored craft papers for the ladybug craft. Trace the wing patterns on the red paper and trace the rest of the patterns on the black colored paper. Cut out the traced patterns. You can use googly eyes or you can cut out the eye patterns from the template.
Attach the antenna cutouts on the smaller side of the body base cutout.
Take the wing patterns and fold them into half lengthwise.
Attach the spot cutouts on either side of the folded wing patterns.
Attach the eye cutouts on the smaller part of the body base.
Take a folded wing pattern and attach it on the body base by aligning its closed end with the middle line of the body base. Place the wing in a slightly diagonal position near the bottom side.
Similarly, attach the other wing to complete the craft.
