The little "bugs" or Buggles fit so nicely in an Altoid tin.
The possibilities are endless. You can create buggles of all colors and patterns. Here we have a lady bug and even a little bumblebee. It's so easy!!
Save those little tins!
Here's what you need:
leftover paper scraps
a little tin
small googly eyes
some strong clear glue (I'm using that crazy stinky glue in the picture--it doesn't have to be this stuff).
You'll also need scrapbook paper and ribbon to decorate your Altoids tin (see next page for instructions).
Step 1. Gather scraps of patterned paper. Add extra details if you want. We wanted this one to look like a bumblebee so we added some black stripes and a stinger.
Step 2. Put some glue on the gem and stick it to the paper. Press it down so the glue spreads out.
Step 3. Let the glue dry thoroughly.
Step 4. Using scissors, cut around the gem, trimming off the extra paper. Glue on the googly eyes.
Now let's head over to the NEXT PAGE to see how to make the cute tin container:
