Oh my Gosh. I made a couple of these a few years ago. I made them for the classrooms that I worked in and I made bierthday bugs. I used lots of colors of yarns> when one of the lids had a birthday, I would put it on their desk and it was there to remind everyone to be kind to that person that it is their special day.

Melissa, it can be as big as you like, this one is about 5 inches tall and I used an empty yogurt cup in the middle...... The ones on the website are smaller......

I've thought about making these for a long time. They are so cute! I think I'll start on some graduation ones for next year. My son could give them to some of his friends.
