Bee Balm

Our small church group of women have been meeting for dinner every two weeks when possible during the summer for fun and fellowship. Last Thursday was our last dinner since we are transitioning to a fall church wide study in September. I used several different products to package up a Burt's Bees Lip Balm for each as a simple token of gratitude. 

I worked in assembly line style so I first created the bees using The Greetery Honey Bees die set, cut from true black, harvest gold and white linen cardstock. I added a bit of color to wings with an E81 Copic pen and then assembled the bees. 

Next I created the packaging using the Papertrey Ink Tag Sale #1 Die which I elongated plus used some off the plate die cutting so I could fold up in order to secure the lip balm. I then created the cutouts using the My Favorite Things Lip Balm Window & Frame. I originally thought I would strictly use a yellow, black and white color scheme but at the last minute decided I wanted to add more color, thus the hawaiian shores frame. I used the Picket Fence Studios Hexagon Randomness Stencil with Aztec Sunflowers Paper Glaze Luxe to partially add the small hexagons and then lightly blended bright buttercup ink on the opposite side. 

I cut the leaves from green parakeet cardstock using a die from The Greetery Summer Findings Die set and a flower from the Spring Findings Die set. I was a little "extra" by cutting the tiny flower center to match the lip balm cap. After attaching the bee, leaves and flower to each, I inserted and glued down the back of the  Lip Balm Pouches, added the lip balm, folded up the tag and tied with yellow cording. 

Products: The Greetery, Papertrey Ink and My Favorite Things dies, PTI cs, Picket Fence Studios Stencil and Paper Glaze, MFT Lip Balm pouches, PTI ink

Can you believe it took all these products for these tiny little packages?
