Die cutting from craft foam is a great way to quickly create dimensional accents. And the best part? Craft foam is inexpensive in available in a lot of colors. I die cut the new Paper Smooches bees from yellow, black, red, and silver glitter craft foam and inlaid the pieces… adhering them with Multi Medium on a kraft Paper Smooches die cut tag.
I created the fun sentiment by combining a greeting from the Paper Smooches Word Up and Bee Mine sets. I tied a Burt’s Bees Lip Balm to the tag with twine. Fun, huh? Oh – and I added a double bow of red silk ribbon and twine to the top of the tag, too.
This is a great way to share a simple bit of handmade kindness with just about anyone!
