Hi my Stampin’ Friends,
what could be better than to gift a gorgeous Pot of Honey made by local bees and potted up by my good friend John (a Beekeeper). Just perfect to add a special touch to Christmas or at any time. Honey has such wonderful health benefits too and they say that it can help arthritis, cholesterol, coughs, fatigue, hay fever, headaches and more. I have a wonderful book on Honey by Margaret Briggs which explains all about the origins of bees, their life cycle, the health benefits along with some delicious recipes. I especially love making the Flapjack, its gorgeous.
Anyway, back to my Gift Box. As I am making Christmas Gifts I have used the Year of Cheer Speciality DSP, as it is as thick as ordinary Carddstock to hold my pot of honey.
Then I had one of those light bulb moments when I realised I had my Dragonfly Dreams Photopolymer Stamp Set with co-ordinating framelit dies, so perfect for stamping out some bees and cutting them out using my Big Shot.
Its makes a complete Gift for me as I have even stamped out the Label using my Merry Little Labels Stamp Set with co-ordinating Punch.
So without further ado here is my video showing you how easy they are to make using my Scoring Board and Envelope Punch Board. So cute with the bees on too. I love them.
I hope you have also found inspiration on my post today. If you fancy a shmooze through the Stampin’ Up Catalogue for more ideas and creativity these are available in the side bar, just click on them to download the images.
