Another wrapped candy bar! It's so fun to make little animals and things with paper punches. This time I made a Bee. This little bee is made from the ornament punch, the oval punch, and a 1" circle punch. I punched out two ornament punches, one in Daffodil Delight and another in Basic Black. I cut the black one into a few strips and added them to the yellow punch out. I made sure to make one of the strips line up with the point on the bottom of the ornament punch to highlight the stinger.
I added a little bit of texture to the bee's wings by running it through an embossing folder that has little hearts on it. This is a brand new embossing folder, featured in the new Occasions mini catalog. It's called a "Textured Impressions Embossing Folder" and I am sure to be using them a lot in the coming months. It is sold in a set of three for $8.95, and they are meant to add texture to the edges of your cards, or smaller things like my wings! I also added a bit of glitter because, well just because. Since I had my "Big Shot" out, I decided to cut out my letters too. These letters are from a die called "Billboard".
This die has upper and lower case letters, all on one die, for $21.95. I use it a lot in my scrapbooking.
Here is a close up of the bee.
I hope you like today's project!
