Since I suck at card making, I decided to craft something different to send out as Valentines. Using materials I had lying around, I made these little magnets. They were quite fun to make, and I’m so glad they turned out! Here’s how I did it:
2. Paint black stripes using the trusty Sharpie, let dry.
3. Paint a coat of sparkle glaze to add glitter and shine, let dry.
7. Top it off with a ‘head’ of your choice. I used a piece of my cold black heart (black metal heart bead).
10. Press the bee on top of the glue (see right pic for back view).
With the Valentines, I included a homemade sweet treat – Love Bark (which is like Rice Krispies Treats on crack. Really, really good crack). I can’t get them to look half as appealing as they taste, but dayam they taste like heaven. I also printed a little ingredients list with it (in case recipients have allergies).
I printed the ‘BEE MINE’ pattern on a piece of vellum and wrapped everything up in it with some twine, then finished it off with those recycled tags I made.
Added bonus: here’s the closest thing to a bee ‘fit you’ll ever find me in.
