"Cute As A Bug!" Picture Frame Magnet Craft Kit
Not as big as I thought it would be
Frame is smaller than I thought it would be. There is no backing to hold the picture in making it look cheesy. Now I have to buy something to cover the back in. To many pieces to fit on frame. To many steps to follow. Kids were totally lost.

Too many little pieces
I order a lot of craft projects from OTC and this one was way too tedious for my students. I had to pre-assemble many of the bugs so that they could actually finish the frame in the amount of time I had with them. I wish you could tell what came pre-made and what didn't before you ordered.

I was surprised at how tiny the pieces were! all of the bugs have to be put together out of tiny pieces. the lettering on the frame "cute as a bug" was cut off on the bottom on a few of them.

Not what I expected
The frames are very cute, but they are very tedious. There are so many pieces and everything has to be glued. There are also many missing pieces in the kits. Not a good project for kids 5 or under.

Fun craft but lots of tiny parts
I did this craft with my Daisy troop of 6 and 7 year olds, and although the end product came out great, it did take much preparation ahead of time. The kit comes with many teeny, tiny parts that can be easily lost...so I glued on the little eyes and antennae ahead of time and I also glued together the ladybug bodies. It made the craft time go much more smoothly and quickly.
Quality wise, the frame is made from a thin foam material-not super sturdy, but for the price, it was as expected. I was disappointed that most of the kits were missing at least 1 or 2 parts, and the "extra parts" baggie that was included only had 2 things in it!

For some reason I thought that the foam pieces were self-adhesive and they were not. I was unable to use them for my daughter's birthday craft because the kids were little and I did not want them using glue. Thankfully I had bought other bug stickers from here that were self-adhesive, though not as cute and it worked out fine. I would not have purchased it if I knew you had to glue ever single little piece together to make each bug. Also the frame was a little flimsy!
