Avery Elle–Bee Mine

Hello sweet friends!!

Popping in quickly to share another project that I created for the Avery Elle Winter Release.  This one features the new stamp set called Bee Mine, and the coordinating Bee Mine Elle-Ments.

It’s Valentine season, people!!  And I love Valentine season!!  I especially love  making fun little gifties for friends.  I think this would be a “sweet” gift for a teacher, too!  Here’s a photo of the inside of the tag:

So, this was super easy to create!  Here’s the simple how-to’s:

  • Trim a piece of Pure White CS to 3” x 6” and score at 3”.  Fold in half.
  • Place the Bee Mine bee hive die so that a small portion of the top of the beehive extends beyond the top edge of the folded cardstock.  Die cut the bee hive.
  • Stamp the bee hive from the Bee Mine stamp set onto another piece of Pure White CS, and die cut using the bee hive die.
  • Color the bee hive with alcohol markers.
  • Using a small hole punch, punch a hole at the top of the folded bee hive; loop some black crochet cord through the hole.
  • Adhere the colored bee hive to the folded bee hive using foam tape.
  • Stamp the bee hive image a third time, this time onto some Raspberry CS.  Trim out the heart, flip it over and adhere it to the front of the bee hive with foam tape.
  • To personalize the inside of the tag, stamp the “To:” and “From:” using Elle’s Alpha stamp set.

Voila!  You have a cute little tag to attach to a sweet jar of honey-filled candies!!  Easy peasy, and sure to make someone fall in love with you! *wink*

"Bee"utiful! Such a sweet little gift. I love the jar, and I also love honey candy, I haven't seen them since I was a little girl. Where can I buy them both?? Thanks for your inspiration and sharing your talent with us.
