Arlene's BB&B Block


I had a lot of fun doing these beetles.  All but the prety one on the left are authentic shapes and  colours. I just had to make an imaginary one too.   The butterfly is stumpwork, the wings are made first and attached afterwards.

Hi Diane, I love your bugs - they are just too cute and you did an awesome job on them. Your butterfly is so pretty. I just took out the wire of some of the same type of ribbon to make jelly fish - I am going to have to try your method out to make a butterlfy next.

A jellyfish sounds interesting! There's really no end to things that can be wired. Nice that the wire is provided along the ribbon edge!
