Linda's dolls are busy at summer camp!
I bought Sculpey Clay to make the insects, but had not used it before and had to hurry to get this done. I was going to use small jars and put netting on them to hold the insects, but when I saw these button jars at Michael's for $1.50 (.97 cents after coupon) I thought I could use them and use the buttons for another project. Each jar is filled with assorted buttons the color of the button lid. Waiting in line at the opening of a new Joann's, I was one of the first 100 customers and won a $20.00 gift card, so I used some of the money to buy insect buttons. The lady bugs needed me to use a black sharpie to blacken their heads.
Caroline is so happy to have caught another butterfly. The butterflies I found at Michael's, clearance for $1.97, regularly $3.99. There were six in a clear plastic case. They are brads, so I just wrapped one on the netting and the other on to a stick. I made the butterfly net from a Dollar Tree bubbles kit. I cut the netting from an onion bag and loosely hand sewed it on the hoop.
