Busy Bees Tag of the Month Tutorial for May 2024 with G45 Let it Bee

Hello, Friends!  It’s only fitting that this Busy Bees Tag of the Month Tutorial is our project for May 2024!  Between baby showers, softball games, Button Farm projects, getting the garden in and just every day life, I feel like I’m as busy as a bee!  But it’s all good fun, and my heart is filled with joy.  With Mother’s Day on the horizon, I wanted to create a tag that could double as a gift.  I think you are going to enjoy seeing this whimsical creation come together.

Even Busy Bees Stop to Smell the Flowers

We’re going big today with a Tim Holtz Medium Etcetera Tag.  These 1/4″ thick tags measure 6 1/2″ x 12″, so there’s lots of room for adding lovely details.  I’ve dressed my tag up with Graphic 45 “Let it Bee” papers. Then I created a meadow full of cone flowers with Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace Vignette Watering Can Dies. Reneabouquets Lemon Blossom Bees decided to join the party, too.  Of course, I found  way to add some vintage buttons from my stash to the design.

You’ll learn how to create the cute posies and the adorable watering can in the tutorial below.

Busy Bee Tea Party in a Box

You know what’s extra nice about these tags?  You can use the back side to create a lovely tea party in a box for mom!

The goodies include a darling little bookmark, note card with a fun surprise inside, Biscoff cookies, Lemon and Ginger Tea Bag, honey stick and a sweet vintage silver plate spoon.

This would be so cute as part of  your kitchen decor.  When the treats have been enjoyed, why not store recipe cards in the spacious box pocket?
