Honeycomb Mini Card and Tags

 I cut and impressed hexagon pieces that I didn't use on the previously posted card.  I thought it would be fun to make a mini card and some tags to use them up.  This time I used the sentiment, 'What's the Buzz' from a Paper Smooches stamp set.  After snipping off the shanks, I glued on some Dress It Up bee buttons (from HM BFC) for a little added interest.  A cute watercolored Rubber Stampede image and some ribbons were attached to finish off these items for my card/tag stash.
Shown here is a view of the accordion pleats I added to give the honeycomb tags some dimension.
It always makes me happy to be able to use up the little extra bits of scraps leftover from a card making session.  My parents always said, "Waste not, want not".  I believe wanting for nothing is the true measure of wealth.

Love how you used your leftovers Lynn. Your tags are so cute with those bee buttons and I love your idea of adding pleats to give it some dimension. Great inspiration for those Nestabilities dies!
