  • Cardstock
  • Super Sized Circle Templates
  • Scalloped Square punch
  • Flowers & Fun Shapes
  • Ultra ShapeXpress
  • Fleur de Lis lever punch
  • Scissor
  • Marker or pencil
  • Book pages
  • Hot glue gun
  • Yarn


  1. Trace a dinner plate onto a piece of cardstock to create a template. Then cut out the center using the Super Sized Circle Templates. Pick the size that works for the height of your muffin wrapper. Then make a cut from any point on the outside of circle straight toward the center. Wrap the template around muffin and mark cutting point (leave room for overlapping). Cut from this point straight to the center of the circle. This is your template. Trace onto cardstock and cut out. Angle a scalloped square punch as shown to create top of crown.

  2. Mark the center of each point and punch out as shown.

  3. Adhere together around muffin and top with an accordion folded strip of a book page or patterned paper topped with a scalloped circle center.

  4. Dress up regular cardstock with a honeycomb pattern to add to the bee theme.

  5. Just sprinkle a few here and there to give that honeycomb effect. The hexagons are easy to make. Cut out several diamonds from the Flowers & Fun Shapes set using the Ultra ShapeXpress on a craft mat. Take one to make your template. Fold the top and bottom tips down 5/8 of an inch each. Cut off these pieces and you are left with a hexagon. Place this template onto each diamond to easily snip off tips.

  6. The bees were created from the Fleur de Lis lever punch.

  7. Punch a Fleur de Lis from both yellow cardstock and vellum. Cut and layer as shown. Add black stripes with a pen.

  8. Beehive wired holders are versatile here, from photo holders on the tables to food labels for the buffet.

  9. Punch out nine scalloped ovals feeding partially into punch as shown. Fold each in half and adhere sides. Cut a piece of sturdy wire and wrap tightly around a pencil several times. Insert into center of beehive.

  10. These hanging accordion circles are taken to the next level using border punches.

  11. Run a border punch along the top and bottom of a book page (or use patterned paper cut down to size). Accordion fold, fold in half, and adhere together with a glue stick. Repeat to create four fans and adhere altogether. Hot glue a yarn pom pom to the center (just wrap yarn around two fingers, tie at center with yarn and clip loops with scissors).

I love working with paper and the ideas found here are very cute. I find the beehive wired holders to be utterly charming and adaptable for different uses. I am also a huge fan of the hanging accordion circles and agree that using a border punch really does add to the overall design very nicely. What a fun way to decorate for mother's day or these designs could be used for other parties as well. Thanks for sharing.
