Valentine Candy Caterpillar (Tutorial)
Well here in the Northwest we have certainly had some wild weather, over seven inches of snow on the ground and then if that was not bad enough mother nature decided why not add a layer of ice.
When I first saw the Poppy Stamp Cute Caterpillar die I thought wouldn't this be a fun project for kids. All I did was paint a wooden clothes pin, filled a snack/sandwich bag with M & M peanuts and die cut and coated the caterpillar with my favorite Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer. To assemble after filling the bag I pinched it in the center with the clothes pin and attached the caterpillar. You could make these for Easter and fill it with yellow and green candies. Oh course any of the candies that tried to escape the bag were eaten.
PS If you want to create the elongated body cut a thin strip of paper and glue the caterpillar pieces to it.
