Yippee!!!!

Now I am sure you want to see what I made for my hop project.....I am super excited about this and think it turned out cuter than I imaged :)
 Here it is.....Pretty cute huh???? So let me walk you through what I made....
My project started out using the Clear Skinny Candy Bags and the cute bee and sentiment from Paper Smooches. After cutting, coloring and adding my stickles to the image, attaching the tags to the bags using the Bumblebee Trendy Twine, I thought the project needed something more. I LOVED the way they all turned out but it got me thinking as to what I could use to hold them....
That is what inspired the beehive holder. I used the Candy Tube Holder Pack from SVG Cutting Files, removed the one hole and centered the other hole. I added some designer paper from My Minds Eye~Unforgettable, cut the cute beehive from a file I picked up in the Silhouette store and wrapped the hive with more Bumblebee Trendy Twine. I couldn't leave the hive without another cutie bee so I printed, cut and colored another, popped him up on the hive and added some curly antenna using some wired string. 
Last picture....promise :) Here is a closeup of the tag. You can see where I added the stickles to the wings and the body of the bee. I used my 3GJ bow maker to add double bows to the tops of all the tags. I also added some flat back gems in black to the centers of the bows.
Finally since this is all about the bumblebees, I found white and yellow chocolate candies to fill my skinny bags with.
Well there you have it! 
I hope you have enjoyed my project!! I know I had a blast designing it!!
