We LOVE the movie Top Gun & in one of the final scenes, ‘Iceman’ says to ‘Maverick’ “You can be my wingman anytime.”  Iconic. How is it that we have never seen this on a Valentine’s Day card before???

We LOVE pom poms almost as much as we love glitter. You can easily craft these cards with even the youngest of kiddos if you use school glue instead of hot glue.

This is a cute card & treat in one. The plastic bugs we used are from Target in store only (but on Amazon here) and sold in a pack of 60 which is definitely more than we need. Plenty left over to play with! These TOOB Brand Insects (BUY HERE) would be great as well. We’ve used them for other projects in the past. They are also found at Michael’s Craft Stores in the US.
