Welcome to the Damask Divas April Blog Hop featuring the Buzz and Bumble paper pack from Close to my Heart. Thanks so much for visiting! If you got here from Julie’s site, then you are in the right place. If you lose your spot or want to start at the beginning go back to the Damask Divas home page.
I cannot say that I like bees in person since they can sting, but I love these cute paper bees! And I love the honey that real bees make! I was inspired to make a card and gift box set. I covered the 4 1/2″chipboard card box with the various papers from the pack. I used the Honeycomb stamp set to stamp the honeycomb shapes and then cut them out. I layered them together to make the bee hive shape. I cut the bees out of some scrap paper and pop dotted them on. The paper flowers were made using the Artiste Cricut Cartridge exclusive to CTMH. I also added some copper glitter glue to give the box some sparkle.
Here are more photos so you can see the details:
