The cute little gift tag will win anyone’s heart.  Whether it’s on a gift to show your “honey” some love or a house warming gift of tea and honey for someone new in the neighborhood, this little bee will be busy warming hearts.  This bee in meant to be enjoyed so be sure to have some fun creating him!

 

1

Emboss half of sheet of cardstock after folding it in half to form a card base and then opening it up again.  Create the embossed area using a stencil and stylus.

2

Stamp the jar onto the honeycomb making sure that the lid is above the embossing.  The lid should be lined up with an untouched area of cardstock.  The stamp is lined up with the folded edge on the left.

3

Cut around the stamped area, but do not cut on the fold.

4

Add yellow ink onto the raised areas using a blending tool to move the ink into the center of the jar from the craft sheet using a small circular motion.

5

Now add some light brown ink down onto the craft sheet and move it onto the edges of the jar using a circular motion again.

6

Layer some yellow ink on top of the brown to give it a golden color.

7

Cut 2 pieces of twine that measure the width of the jar and glue them on.

8

Use some of the twine to tie a bow and attach it over the pieces of twine.

9

Now, place a stick of the Mod Podge Melts into a high temp glue gun and carefully fill the bee in the mold.  NOTE:  You will need a high temp glue gun that is a .28 in size so the Melts fit correctly into it.

Allow the Melts to harden and then remove from the mold.

10 Paint the bee will black acrylic paint using a dabbing motion with the paintbrush.   Allow it to dry thoroughly and attach it to the tag.

11

Finish the bee by painting some yellow stripes on the body using a small paint brush and yellow acrylic paint.

The next time you need a gift tag for that special gift create this cute little bee tag and it will be the “buzz” of the party.  Attach it to a box of favorite tea and a jar of honey for the perfect gift for anyone including yourself.  Don’t be afraid make a gift for you to enjoy, too!

After 15 years of doing cakes she decided it was time to stop and focus more on her family. She began doing layouts, then cards and it went from there. Before she knew it, next to spending time with her family, she spent every free moment creating something and blogging about it. One thing led to another and here she is today!
