Honeybee Shaker Card with Customized Dyed Ribbon

Hey, Pals!  Bees are buzzing and flowers are blooming, so I’m popping in to share this Honeybee Shaker Card with Customized Dyed Ribbon.  It’s adorned with Ribbon, Metallic String and Pastel Sweetheart Blossoms from Actually Affordable Ribbon.

You would possibly acknowledge this Elizabeth Craft Designs Honeybee from an earlier publish.  This time I dressed her up in shades of aqua and coral.  She’s headed for the spring flowers inside that shaker body for certain!

Create the shaker body with an Everythings Blooming Massive Doily.  Die reduce a circle from acetate and cling to the again.  Then add 3 layers of froth tape and press over your number of sequins, buttons and beads.

Die reduce the honeycomb from patterned paper.   Hold the punch out items, flip to the reverse aspect and glue contained in the cells. You may as well scatter some sequins in for a contact of sparkle.

Customized Dyed Seam Binding Ribbon to the Rescue!

What do you do once you don’t have excellent shade of ribbon in your stash?  I flip to my white seam binding ribbon!  Then I pull out my Misery Inks and add simply the colours I need.  Right here’s how.

  • First, reduce about 1 yard of white seam binding ribbon.
  • Subsequent, choose 3 complementary shades of Misery Ink. For this card, I selected Tumbled Glass, Damaged China and Fossilized Amber.
  • Swipe the Misery Ink Pads on a non-stick craft sheet, then mist with water till small shade droplets kind.
  • Dip the seam binding ribbon by means of the inky puddles.  Don’t swipe, or the colours will get muddy.
  • Dry the ribbon with a warmth gun between purposes, and repeat till you might be proud of the ultimate consequence.
  • In case your ribbon is wrinkled, you may iron with a heat iron.  However I just like the crinkles!
  • Now tie your fairly bow and high with Iridescent Metallic String.
A Peek Inside

Add a cute aspect pocket inside your card, then fill with a mini be aware card and packet of wildflower seeds.

Create a cute little tag with Honeybee and Bloom stamps from the All the pieces’s Blooming launch.  Tie waxed linen thread across the high and add a bee attraction to finish the theme.

I hope I’ve shared some ideas and concepts that you should utilize in your subsequent artful journey.  You’ll discover a linked provide checklist beneath this publish.
