METALLIC WASHI TAPE BUMBLE BEES

July 6, 2018

  

It occurred to me this week when I made this project that bees don’t in fact have to be yellow and black - that’s the beauty of writing a creative blog.

 

So when I couldn’t find black washi in my stash, I changed it up completely and used my favourite metallic tapes to create adorable, shiny “bumble bees” for summer! 

 

TOOLS & MATERIALS:

 

 

DIRECTIONS (PER BEE):

 

 

1.  Use the larger of the two punches to make a yellow circle for the bee’s body.  Add three strips of tape, then turn over and cut off the over hang.

2.  Punch a circle of the same size in the glitter paper and then cut it in half (I used a paper trimmer, but scissors work too).  Hole punch opposite corners and add a hole to the top of the bee's body as well.

 

 

3.  Insert a brad through the holes you created and secure it.

4.  Use the small circle punch to cut a little more than a semi-circle for the head on the black paper, and slide it behind the wings on the bee.  If it doesn’t hold, use tape to secure it.

 

 

 

Total project time: approximately 20 minutes for 6 bees.
