Here I am again, long overdue with this post, but happy to snatch a few moments to get caught up. I try hard to be creative daily (I love Deanne Fitzpatrick's motto, "Create Beauty Everyday") but I don't always succeed. I recently cut out seven little dresses that I had hoped to have finished by now, but I'll blog about those another time, hopefully soon. In the meantime, it's a darn good thing I have to come up with a weekly craft at the little Glanworth library so that I have an opportunity for a little creativity now and then. Here are instructions for making a ladybug with movable wings.
Start with a shape as shown, then poke or punch in a small hole.
Cut out a circle
then cut it in half and poke in a hole at the top of each half.
Decorate the wings with stickers or foam cut-outs,
then fasten the wings to the body with a brad. Glue on googly eyes and draw on a smile. Poke in holes above the eyes,
then make pipe-cleaner antennae.
Being crafty is fun at any age!
The finished bugs are fun to show off.
Happy crafting and happy summer!
