bug mobile

It has been HOT in Minnesota.  I'm up early getting ready to go to Crazy Days in Excelsior.  It's a yearly tradition with my wonderful friend Kay.  We love the deals.  More than anything we love hanging out together for the morning.
Today's project is a bug mobile.  You can get an even better look at it in my Fox 9 segment here... http://www.myfoxtwincities.com/story/22842692/crafting-with-bugs-and-water-beads
I used my large circle punch to make the bumblebees.

The wings are hearts!

The ladybugs are a scallop punch.  I used smaller punches for the head and dots.

The butterflies are cut freehand.

I have to give credit to my husband for putting the mobile together.  We used 2 embroidery hoops and fishing line to string them together.  I'm definitely hanging this up in my classroom!  


  1. I just ADORE your craft segments on the news- and I live in Knoxville, TN! You are ADORABLE- and your ideas are ingenious!

  2. I agree with wonder woman above! seriously!!!
