The Bugs Are Coming But No Need To Reach For The Bug Spray

Have you checked out Penny Duncan's blog lately? If not you don't know what you are missing. She has a great tutorial and the files to go with it (free) on how to make some amazing Dragonflies and Butterflies.
I tried my hand at making the Dragonflies. I am pleased with the way they came out except I really need to get some very tiny jewels or diamonds for the eyes. Although I had small ones as you can see from the pictures (below) that they are not really small enough but they will do for now. My next batch will have tiny eyes. Tomorrow I will try my hand at the butterflies.


  1. THese turned out fantastic. What do you plan on doing with them all?

  7. You did a beautiful job on your dragonflies. I made one of the butterflies, and they are really a lot of fun to make. I'll have to try the dragonflies next. Thank you so much for sharing with us.
