Thanks for Bee-lieving In Me!



  I decided to revisit an idea from one of the Valentines I did earlier this year. So, here's a cute teacher gift for Burt's Bees products. I love Burt's Bees products because even those most sensitive to scents, can usually tolerate them. Plus, they don't have all the harsh chemicals that most bath and body products have.

I have given two different options for cards with this gift idea. One has a space to do a fingerprint bee, the other is just a card. I figured I would do this because I am just not sure what age fingerprint crafts become "uncool" for kids. However, I am almost 33 and still love them!

Printable link for blog subscribers here.



To make the bee: Use one sideways thumbprint and index tip print. Embellish with stripes, stinger, wings, legs, antennae, and face.
To embellish the bag: Glue card to bag, fold bag over at desired level, and punch two holes. Thread ribbon through holes and tie a bow.

  5. Thanks for the wonderful idea! I wanted something that was partially hand made but with something useful and store bought for my kids teachers. I am a beginner at crafts and I found this to be very easy and they turned out very nice. I will hand them over with pride. Thanks again for the great idea!!!
