This is such a versatile card that can be easily adapted for any occasion. I'm thinking Father's Day or an anniversary or to welcome a new baby. Instead of bees just add photos and hand written personal messages on the tags.

I hop you have enjoyed this tutorial and will maybe create something similar yourself. Remember to share your creations on social media using #papermilldirect.

Thank for looking today. Stay safe and keep crafting!
