Here is my project for today's hop

To me bugs and summer mean a 

glass jar with holes punched in the 

top and catching lightening bugs at 


So when I saw this cricut cut 

file decided to figure out how to 

make it 3 D and look like a jar 

with bugs. 

It took some doing (about 3 hrs 

worth) but I got it done!  

I will include the explore cut file 

for everyone. 

Cricut File 
I also glued a piece of acetate that I cut free hand and glued that to the front panel.  I have no brand for the paper since I buy it by the pound.  I used 1/8 inch strips of foam tape and doubled them to pop the front panel with the acetate on it. 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.
