Altoid Tin Reuse Bug Craft Toy - 2

Hello crafty friends!  You are here to make a cute little Buggles craft toy out of your Altoid tins right?  This is the right place!  I showed you how to make the actual BUGGLES on the PREVIOUS PAGE.  So now here's the info on how to reuse and decorate your metal container.

These little buggles are fun for older kids to create, trade, and travel with using the little Altoid tin as the buggles home.  Not recommended for children under 3 years old.

What are Buggles?  Click the video to find out!

So let's decorate your Altoids tin.

You can use any cute, little tin.  Save and recycle those metal containers.

All I did was trace the lid on my scrapbook paper and cut it out.  

Then I evenly spread the glue and stuck the paper on.  

I glued ribbon around the base of the tine and a cute little bow.  

You could add buttons, stickers, tiny gems, etc.

And that's it!  Now you have a darling little summer bug collection in a cute case! 

I hope this inspires some creativity today!
