Just BEE-cause...

It's my DT posting day over at Get Inky! Stamps, and today I'm excited to share with you a treat bag I made using their adorable Buzzing Bees stamp set!

To make the treat bag topper, I cut a 4x4 inch square out of white cardstock and scored it in half so that it would fold easily. Then I cut a piece of Recollections cardstock for the background, and stamped the bee right on the patterend paper. I colored him with Copics Y23, and Y26, which luckily were both a perfect match for the paper.

Then I stamped the sentiment the trail (also from the same set) and added some Star Dust Stickles to the bee's wings and also to the flower that the bee had just visited. :) The pearls are from Miriam's Crafting Supplies.

I filled the treat bag with lemon drops - I should've thought about what candy I was going to use before I adhered the paper... do you know how hard it is to find yellow and/or black candy?! Thankfully one of my crafty friends gave me the lemon drop idea, and I'll be sending her my dentist bill for when I have to pay for all the cavities I'm going to get from snacking on all the leftovers! :)

This treat bag is also being used as inspiration for our current Get Inky! challenge - Fabulous Floral Fun. Create a project using flowers for a chance to win a stamp set from Get Inky! AND everyone who enters the challenge receives their choice of THREE free digis! How cool is that?!
