The Ladybug craft template makes it super easy to cut out the shapes you need.

Step 2: Cut Out the Ladybug Craft Shapes

Once you have the print outs, staple them to construction paper and cut out the shapes you need.

print the ladybug template and staple it to multiple sheets of paper before cutting.

If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.

So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting.

Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.

Tip: While you’re cutting, if you cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left.

Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!

Step 3: How to Assemble

Whether you call it a ladybug or ladybird, this craft is so easy. Your children will love gluing it all together and make it their own!
