Oh, I'm in love... with these sweet bees party printables. The kit includes: 1) cupcake wrappers and toppers
2) drink labels-I hand stamped* the word honey on a label then secured it to my honey jar with several rounds of lightweight jute. 3) garland 4) pennant straw toppers 5) envelope printed on white cardstock with coordinating stationery 6) envelope front printed on brown kraft paper/grocery bag 7) envelope back printed on brown kraft paper/grocery bag NOTE: Click on photos to enlarge.
I chose to make honey-sweetened carrot cake cupcakes. It is a bee-themed party kit, afterall. The recipe uses almond flour, making them gluten-free, with only 2 tbsp oil and 1/4 cup honey. You can spread with frosting, but it's not necessary. They taste perfectly wonderful with a sprinkle of raw sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds. I covered the table with a chicken wire print fabric. I think it looks like a honeycomb, too. I don't remember where I purchased it since it has been lying in my fabric stash for a mere 20 years or so... waiting for the perfect project. Oh, yes. If you hold onto something long enough, you will surely find a use for it one day.
These hand drawn sweet bees printables are available in my daughter Heather's you-make-do shop. She has created two versions... one kit with a slightly darker color suitable for printing on brown kraft paper/grocery bags to compensate for ink absorption and another kit with a slightly lighter color for printing on cardstock. The brown kraft paper/grocery bag version results in a natural, earthy-looking product.
*The making memories "rummage" upper and lowercase alphabet stamps can be purchased where scrapbooking supplies are sold. I've had my set for several years or more, so I don't remember where I purchased it-probably Joanns or Michaels. The stamps produce an old-fashioned typewriter look. The letters' magnetized backing holds securely to the stamping tool.
