You may have seen my ladybug card I posted a while back, HERE. One of my customers thought it would be fun to see a BEE with this same concept, so I thought I would give it a try! Here’s the result!
Recipe:Stamp Set: Thank You KindlyInk: Craft WhitePaper: Basic Black, YoYo YellowAccessories: Large Scallop Circle Die Cut, 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, Large Oval Circle Punch (for antenna), 1/4″ Circle Punch, Black Brads
Cut out 2 black scalloped circles and one yellow one from the large die cut. One black one will be the base, the other will be the wings.
Cut the yellow one in strips, matching up the scallops ends. Tape it to the black large scallop circle.
Cut this striped one in half down the center.
Punch out a 1 ¾” circle out of black cardstock. Glue this to the back of the large black scallop bee body.
Punch an oval out of black cardstock. You can throw away the OVAL that is punched. The part you want is the part that is left on the cardstock! Just punch again about 1/8” higher than the one you just punched. Do this two times to make the antenna. Then punch a ¼” black circle for the ends of the antenna. Glue the antenna to the back of the head.
Attach the striped wings to the black scallop circle body. Attach with two black brads at the top. They will swivel to open and shut.
Stamp your sentiment on the body.
