Thank you!

I'm usually crafting late at night while watching CSI or some such programme. I've always found it more difficult to craft during the day. Total night owl! Cheesy

I want to make a bunch to pop on my tree at Christmas and surprise people!

I love these! And, I love the picture of them all upside down to show their springs- looks like a pile of dead bugs! But, you made a trio of good bugs, so we don't want them to end up dead in a pile. Cockroaches and mosquitos, on the other hand...

Are the paper parts glued onto the spring and legs, or are they just nested over the top of the spring?

Ugly bugs- I think not!!  They're the cutest bugs I've ever seen.  They really would be great Christmas tree ornaments  Smiley
