Crafting Happiness - May

This was fun! I love how it turned out.
Pattern papers - Pink & Main, Home Sweet Home
Yellow gems for flower centers
Sentiment - Peachy Keen Stamps kit 2018
(I had to modify the size of the sentiment banner to fit this stamp)

I duplicated and laid out the hive pieces on the mat and then welded them together. This allowed me to cut one piece of the hive shape and glue the pieces on there. Much more easier than just trying to add a sliver of glue to the edges of the ovals that make up the hive.

I accidentally folded the box card incorrectly. So the finished project is flipped from it's original intention. Which means the cute little bumble bee is partially hidden behind the flowers, but would normally be more exposed if I had folded it the correct way. Oopsie. Still turned out cute though. :)

Thanks so much for visiting my blog,
