Punch Eyes
By Gary Melow

Foam sheets, a hole punch and a permanent marker are all you need to make a ton of light-weight eyes for bass bugs and other flies.

My wife was making a project for her first-graders, using a single-hole punch to make holes in sheets of thin craft foam – like you'd use for rubber spiders and the like. She marked each spot with a dot from a Sharpie® then punched the hole. The resulting scrap were little foam circles with black pupils, perfect for deer-hair bugs and poppers.

Now I "punch eyes" from her scraps in a variety of color combinations. ~ GM
