Good Monday Morning Krafty Friends!

I'm BUZZING with excitement to share my latest My Cricut Craft Room 
project with you!

While looking over the project options, thinking aloud I said "What the heck can I make that starts with the letter Q?" My boyfriend replied "Queen Bee!" as if it were a no brainer. lol Hmpfh, why didn't I think of that?! He seemed so happy with himself that he came up with the idea that I couldn't not do it, ya know? So together we picked out the images....a bee from Create A Critter and a crown from Storybook. I decided to make a little treat out of this Queen Bee because I have a friend that it will be perfect for as a "Just Bee-cause" gift. 

Want to make your own? Here's how:

-You'll find the bee on page 68 of Create A Critter. I cut her at 4 1/2", using vellum for her wings then glittered the black part of the body and antennas. I Glossy Accented her eyes, drew on some eyelashes to make her more girly then finished off her face by adding rosy cheeks with a sponge dauber.

-The crown can be located on page 65 of Storybook. I cut it at 3/4" using the <crown2> & accent frame feature. I placed black rhinestones over the holes for some added bling. All crowns need some bling right? 

-I filled the treat tube with jelly beans, tied some tulle around the top just because I love tulle. I don't think I could craft without it. lol  Printed the sentiment onto cardstock using the "Giddyup" font. Punched the tag using Martha Stewarts tag punch, then tied it on with some DMC floss. I finished it off by adhering her to the tube. Now she's ready to fly off to her new home.  

Thanks for stopping by, I hope I've inspired you today! 

Please head over to My Cricut Craft Room to see the rest of todays projects.
