Honey Bee Just for YouI

I really, really like these bees and all the goodies that go with them from Honey Bee Stamps!

I had an "out of the box" idea to try by weaving ribbon through two of the Hexagon Cover Plate dies (also from Honey Bee Stamps).  I used the bottom and middle layers.  Here are a couple photos of the process:
I added tape runner along the bottom, folded the ribbon over & trimmed the ends.
I turned the middle sized die cut "upside down" to have the small slits to weave the ribbon.
I die cut a white and black circle to have a base for the flowers and sentiment (& also to break up the busy background some).



Thanks so much for looking!

Supplies:
Honey Bee Stamps, dies:  Hexagon Cover Place bottom & middle layers; Busy Bees; Build-A-Bee; Sending You sentiments
Spectrum Noir alcohol markers
Glossy Accents
yellow ribbon from my stash

  1. Excellent, Carol!! My goodness you are clever and not afraid of tackling a project! This was worth all the work and, honestly, it needs to be a decoration in your home, patio, or garden wall (well-protected, of course!)! Have a great weekend! Hugs, Darnell
