D.I.Y. Advice from a Honey Bee

"Mind your own beeswax."

That is one piece of advice a honey bee would give you...and probably your mother, too.

This tutorial is dedicated to our Card of the Month for January, which is "Advice from a Honey Bee" by Ilan Shamir of Your True Nature.

Crafted by Karen.


  • 1 Advice from a Honey Bee Postcard
  • 1 Barnwood 12 x 12 Frame
  • 1 Sheet 12 x 12 Corrugated Cardboard
  • Wood Letters to spell the word "BUZZ" 
  • Black Acrylic Paint
  • Foam Brush
  • Tape Adhesive 
  • E-6000

All supplies used for this project can be found at our Bonney Lake store.
  1. Gently brush black paint over the ridges to accentuate the texture of the corrugated cardboard with the foam brush. Set aside to let dry.
  2. Once dry, use a tape adhesive to glue the postcard onto the textured (corrugated) side of the cardboard. 
  3. Apply E-6000 (or an adhesive of your choice) to the back of the wooden letters to glue onto the cardboard. Set aside to let dry when done.
  4. Insert the cardboard with the postcard and letters into the frame. 
  5. Hang your project onto the wall to display proudly.
