A Short Tutorial on the Valentine Bee

Hello again!

Here is the tutorial for the Valentine Bee. I am sorry that it is so short. This is not a good day today for me but I wanted to post this for you in case you wanted to make one for a Valentine card - so I hope that this is helpful. If you have any questions, please do let me know and I will be happy to answer them.

When surfing the Internet I saw this cute photo of a Valentine centerpiece and immediately wanted to sit down and create this little bee. So, with this as my inspiration, I started playing with all my paper punches to see what I could do.

These are the punches I used in addition to the "thickers" foam letters. I have never purchased letters before so this was a first for me and now I am hooked! :<) I found them at Archiver's.

And here are the individual pieces that were made using the paper punches. If you match them with the punches in the photo above it should be self explanatory. If not, let me know!

And here is the little Valentine Bee that I created! Enjoy!

Wishing you a very Happy Valentine weekend! :<)
