Gum Guy Cupids

Gum Guy Cupids

There's no better way to say "I'm stuck on you" than with one of these treat-bearing suitors.

2 sticks of gum (in their wrappers)
Double-sided tape
Pipe cleaner
Colored card stock
Glue stick
Aluminum foil or colored paper
Googly eyes and mini stickers
Colored markers (optional)
Time needed: Under 1 Hour

Step 1:
Cover one side of a wrapped stick of gum with double-sided tape. Cut a pipe cleaner in half and place the pieces atop the gum stick, centered horizontally, one for the cupid's arms and the other for his legs. Stack the second gum stick on top and gently press down to stick all the pieces together. Then bend the pipe cleaner limbs into interesting poses.
Step 2:
Now cut a heart-shaped face from card stock and glue on foil or paper hair. Attach googly eyes and a mini sticker mouth (or simply use markers to draw on facial features). Glue or tape the face to the body. Then dress up your Gum Guy with sticker buttons and bow ties, as much as you wish. For a finishing touch, on a small piece of paper, print a Valentine's message, such as "Stick with me," to pop in his hand.
