Make this cute bee perler bead into an encouragement card that is simple to make and thoughtfully placed on a card you can gift to a loved one!
Perler beads and puns are two of my very favorite things (aside from my children!) I absolutely LOVE a great pun; even more, I enjoy sitting with my kids and doing Perler Bead projects. So much fun!
Kids can learn color differentiation, practice their math and learn valuable skills in the area of patience.
My kids and I have done tons of Perler Bead projects – namely puns! Here are just a few:
This Bumble Bee is a cute way to send a card to a friend to let you know you’re thinking of them!
Bumble Bee Perler Bead Card
This Bee Perler Bead combines 3 colors that come together as a bumble bee perfect to send as a form of encouragement on a printable card (see far below!)
(Disclaimer: This post includes affiliate links for items at no additional charge to you.)
First, gather your beads and count out each color required:
- Yellow: 33
- Clear: 19
- Black: 46
Get started by laying out all of your materials on a flat surface. I like to lay a clean terry towel down to prevent the beads from rolling around the table (and onto the floor!)
You’ll start the layout with tail of the bee, and then slowly work your way to the wings and face. When the bee is complete, get ready to iron your creation.
Lay your wax paper atop and gently press with a warm iron for 30-35 seconds. Avoid over-pressing because the beads will melt a little too much.
BEE-autiful Day Card
In addition to those items you’ll also want to have:
- 8.5 x 11 cardstock
- adhesive dots (pick up at the Dollar Tree)
- paper cutter
- 5×7 envelopes (pick up at Hobby Lobby or here on Amazon)
- completely optional: 5×7 adhesive sleeves
- this Have a BEE-autiful Day Card (prints 2 per page!)
Once you print the card, cut the paper in half with a paper cutter, and affix your bee on top with a single adhesive dot.
That’s it! If you are sending to family or friends, place the bee on the card with a single adhesive dot. Then place in a 5×7 adhesive sleeve. Tuck in a 5×7 envelope and mail with a single forever stamp.
