Children Projects Week! Ladybug

Hey everyone!

Sorry I wasn’t around too much last week!  I was busy putting together an Arts and Craft Idea booklet for my workshop yesterday. Thanks to those you came, we had a great time!

I thought I would share some of the children projects I ‘ve shown yesterday.  So I’ve decided to make this week a Children Projects Week!  I will post a different project everyday so keep watching!

Today I will show you how to do a cute Ladybug using some punches, the Big Shot and dies.

So here’s the picture:

The wings are attached with two brads (who make the eyes at the same time) and therefore you can move them around (open and close.) You could use this as a card and write a little message under the wings.

How to make it:

Material

  • Red and Black cardstock
  • 2 brads
  • ¾ in. circle punch
  • 2 ½ in. circle punch
  • Big Scallop Circle die

Instructions:

  • Cut 2 big scallop circles (one black and one red) using die and Big
    Shot. Cut the red one in half.
  • Punch 6 small black circles using ¾ in. circle punch.
  • Punch 1 big black circle  using 2 ½ in. circle punch. Cut in half.
  • Cut 2 antennas and a smile in paper scrap.
  • Glue the small black circle on the red scallop circle to make the ladybug
    dots.
  • Align the red and black scallop circle together and put the half black
    circle to overlap the scallop circles a little bit (to form the
    head).  Pierce the 3 layers and insert the brad to maintain the 3
    layers together. Repeat on the other side.
  • Add antennas and smile.
