Print our template. Regular print paper will work although it’s best to print it on heavier print paper.

If you will color in our templates, we recommend you do it before cutting, it certainly makes things easier.

No need to stay withing the lines ;).

Cut out all pieces.

If you are using the template as a stencil – trace the parts on the cardstock – body on the black one, “wings” on whatever color you want, legs on black one (these colors are totally up to you).Glue the “wings” on the body.

Cut the legs.

Fold the legs – accordion fold. This will make them wigglier and funkier.

Glue them on the bottom of the beetle body.

Glue the strap on the bottom of the body.
