Trim paper for Cuttlebug
Trim papers to fit onto Cuttlebug plates or the embossing machine you choose to use for this project.
Insert into machine
Place 4" and 2" circles onto A plate, flat side down - one above the other. Lay black paper on top of dies followed by B and C plates. Run them through the machine. Repeat process with only the 4" circle and red paper.
Punch a small hole in both black circles about 1/2" from edge. Overlap the circles and line up the holes; glue small circle under larger one.
Glue on eyes & nose
Glue on wiggle eyes and pom nose.
Create & attach wings
Cut red circle in half. Hold halves together and punch a small hole near top cut edge. Separate the wings, place them over the body and overlap wings where punched. Insert a brad into the hole and separate the tabs to secure.
Add spots & glue to craft stick
Punch 6 - 3/4" circles from black paper and glue them onto the wings. Glue your ladybug onto the jumbo craft stick and it's good to go!
