Happy Valentine's Day!

I thought I'd share this little bee with you all, since it's Valentine's day today! :) This was another CHA project done for the Maya Road booth.  The bee was made out of a paper mache ornament and a styro-foam ball, that were covered with patterned paper. I used a chipboard butterfly from the Butterfly Accordion Album for her wings. Then added some Satin Pleated Ribbon around the bee's middle. To attached  the bee to the base a wooden dowel was threaded through the box, and up through the body and head.

Leaves and Felt Pearl Flowers were added to the top of the box along with some Vintage Pearl Pins.

Here's a close-up of the chipboard and banner on the sides of the box.
