I’m dying to show you these cute BUGGLES we made. It’s a fun little kids craft using clear gems and reusing an Altoid tin and it would be an awesome kids summer craft. This easy Altoid tin project makes a fun little travel toy or bug collection for your children. We call the little gem critters “Buggles.” Keep in your purse for when waiting at restaurants or offices. Kids can make them with friends and name them and trade them. Here’s how to make it . . .

How to make Buggles Craft:
Step 1. Gather scraps of patterned paper. Add extra details if you want. We wanted this one to look like a bumblebee so we added some black stripes and a stinger.
Step 2. Put some glue on the gem and stick it to the paper. Press it down so the glue spreads out.
Step 3. Let the glue dry thoroughly.
Step 4. Using scissors, cut around the gem, trimming off the extra paper. Glue on the googly eyes.
