Cutting Machine or Scissors



  1. Print the PDF file if you are cutting by hand or use the SVG file if you are using a cutting machine. We recommend printing onto colorful cardstock.
  2. Once your designs are cut, bring the edges of the grass around to meet each other and use a spot of glue to to secure the back.
  3. Arrange the bugs in various angles within the blades of grass or attach a few to the bottom of the grass with glue.
  4. Cover with glass dome and display!
