Valentines Day is almost here and I have been slowly getting things ready. I like to celebrate not only my love for my husband and children at this time but also my friends. I started making a special gift for my friends last year and I hope to continue to do this for years to come. They are a very important part of my life and help me in so many ways, so I want to always recognize them and let them know how much I appreciate them. I played around with the Sketchbook app on my Ipad to make these. I plan on learning Illustrator one of these days, but until then Sketchbook is a good alternative for me. For some reason I had bees on the brain.
I created a printable pdf for a page of six small bee prints and a pdf for a page with a card on it. Both are available for download here.
I cut mine out inside the black lines and then glued them onto honeycomb scrapbook paper I found at Michael’s. Then I added some decorative tape to the top and bottom (tape from scrapbook aisle at Target). I wanted to add some candy because I also found these cute bee bags at Micheal’s to fill up. I got most of the candy from Party City which has a great color coordinated candy section now by the way. I was impressed. The last time I went there a few months ago they did not have that.
I have handed a few out and have quite a few to get in the mail tomorrow. I hope that it is a sweet surprise for my friends and that they know how much I appreciate them. Are you doing anything special for your friends this week?
