Be My Baby Bumble Bee

Be my little baby bumble bee
(Buzz around, buzz around, keep a-buzzin' 'round)
Bring home all the honey, love, to me
(Little bee, little bee, little bee)
   – Music by Henry I. Marshall, lyrics by Stanley Murphy, 1912

 

I like making cards with a matching gift and I really wanted to make something that would do justice to this gorgeous felt from Benzie Bazaar. So, how about a card with gifts that can be attached right onto the card? Crazy, huh. Stay with me.

It starts out as a clean and simple card.

 

A handmade felt brooch attaches to the ribbon with a trinket/hat pin and a dangling bumble bee charm.

 

Basic Grey magnetic snaps placed between the paper layers attach a tag. The tag can double as a gift tag, bookmark or refrigerator magnet.

 

There's more inside . . . a luggage tag and embellished clip. You can write a personal note on the luggage tag and/or use the clip to attach a gift card.

 

Now . . . who should I give this to?

Oh my . . . where to start. There are quite a few ingredients.

  • Pattern Paper/Cardstock – Little Yellow Bicycle Seamstress, Chatterbox Parlor, Neenah
  • Stamps – My Favorite Things Just Bee Yourself
  • Color Mediums – Memento, Stampin' Up! Pastels, Copics
  • Embellishments – Chatterbox rivets, i-rock crystals, beaded chain, Making Memories vintage trinket pin, bee charm, Making Memories clip, Chatterbox tags, Basic Grey magnetic snaps
  • Fibers – DMC Floss (433), tulle netting, yellow seam binding, Chatterbox fibers, Benzie Bazaar felt
  • Tools – My Favorite Things Die-Namics (grass and inside scallop), Accu-cuts Gift Tag die, Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die, i-rock crystal heat-setting tool
  • Challenges/Linking Parties – Fussy and Fancy Friday Sketch, Splitcoast Stampers WT313 Fun Felt and SPRINGSC11, Skip to My Lou Made by you Monday.

Bee Back Soon, because later this week I'll be sharing a tutorial for making this felt flower as a brooch or hair clip.

  1. Fabulous card!, inside and out. Love the details, especially the measuring tape dp.

  2. Give it to…my best friend that has always bee…n there with a listening ear, a suggestion or two and advise. The one that has bee…n a highlight to old age, encouraged me to create from my heart and know that I can.
    The work within the recipes of cards is amazing. I know that when I put something out I have to admire it for awhile, take a picture or two and then it seems that within the right time it is needed and goes out to that "just right" person.
    Love your work from your heart…Tootsie
