Little Bitty Bugs {Lawn Fawn} !

Hi there!  Taking a break from Christmas prep to share a *little* project with you using Lawn Fawn's new Bugs and Kisses stamp set and dies!  It's pretty impossible for me to not want everything that Lawn Fawn comes out with, so when they new Valentine's mini release was available, of course, I had to fill up my cart! :)

I happen to think that everything is cuter in mini size.  These itty bitty bugs and their little bug jar are beyond adorable.  Sometimes I need just a tiny note to slip in my sons' lunch boxes, or in the pocket of a pair of my husband's jeans when he's not looking...  These are perfect for that.  Sometimes, my boys don't need a long winded written speech for them to be reminded how much I love them...  That's were these bitty notes come in.

I stamped and diecut a set of 5 jars, and a bunch of little bugs too.  Then I diecut another 5 jars  to use for the card back.  I put a little score line along the upper part of the card back so that they will open easily, and attached the front to the back with scor-tape.  I popped the little bugs up with foam squares because no matter how tiny the project, I need to use foam tape.  Yep.

On the inside of a few, I selectively inked one of the sentiments from the Bugs and Kisses stamp set and stamped it inside.  The rest I left blank for my own little notes.

I wanted little envelopes for these, and I pulled out my Papertrey Ink Tiny Envelope die, which fits these perfectly. I used coordinating papers from the Let's Polka 6x6 paper pad, and stamped an envelope wrap using the Winter Gifts stamp set and dies, and Milo's ABCs.
