I've been wanting to try making a little curio cabinet for a while, so when I saw this box I thought it was perfect for housing a few insect specimens.

All the insects were created from bits and bobs I liked the look of and so have collected and stashed in jars and drawers. It's nice to finally use some of them, and they were so much fun to make! Cheesy





I gave them all Latin names based on what they looked like/were made of


Thanks for looking! Smiley

Wow!!! Very cool. My favorite "insect" is the Dominatrix Domino Bug! LOL! (I have a stash of old dominoes & now you got my creative juices are flowing!)

This is very clever & so much fun to look at. Thanks for showing it to us!
