Take your vanilla (2 x 2 3/4) c/s cut off the 2 lower corners & stamp your bug (I stamp him in Artichoke). Color it w/ Crayola Color Pencils (I used Jade-Green for body, Green for back & face, red for heart), then I took a black marker & colored his legs, arms & antena. I took a red marker & did the outline of the heart. Sponge your edges w/ Mellow Moss. Punch a hole toward the bottom for your eyelet. Mount on your red c/s & trim the edges. Roll on your heart wheel w/ Mellow Moss ink on the same color of c/s. Take a scrap piece of c/s & punch out a 1/2" circle, then make a hole in the center for your eyelet. Line up your 1/2" circle to your punched circle on your vanilla c/s & set your silver eyelet. Take a long piece of silver cord, fold in 1/2 & feed it through your eyelet hole, tape it on the back. Tape your bug tag to your Moss c/s & wrap the remaining cord around it.
When you are done w/ all of that add 2-way glue to the eyes & glue on some goggle eyes, also add crystal effects to the back shell of the bug.
It looks really cute in person.
