Materials Used

Let’s craft!

Step by Step Tutorial

The Bee’s Body

Take the yellow cardstock and mark one 4 cm wide strip.

Step 1

Draw a few small rectangles as shown in the picture.

Step 2

Cut out the yellow strip (both with the rectangles) by using scissors.

Step 3

Punch out two yellow circles.

Step 4

Connect the circles using a split pin.

Step 5

Split the ends of the split pin to secure the circles together.

Step 6

Take the yellow strip and fold the rectangles.

Step 7

Apply some glue on the rectangles, glue them to one of the circles and start wrapping the strip around the circles.

Step 8

Continue with the wrap.

Step 9

Apply some glue on the corner line of the stripe and press the paper with your fingers until the glue is set.

This would be the body of the bee.

Step 10

Take the black cardstock and cut three 1 cm wide strips.

Step 11

Glue the strips to the yellow body.

Step 12

The Bee’s Sting

Now draw an arrow on the black cardstock.

Step 13

Cut out the arrow using scissors.

Step 14

Apply some glue on the bottom part of the arrow and glue it inside the yellow body.

Leave the pointy part of the arrow outside as shown in the picture. That is the bee’s sting.

Step 15

The Wings

Take the blue cardstock and fold it in half.

Step 16

Draw a 2 cm rectangle (the crease should be the starting point) followed by a tear shape.

Step 17

Cut out this shape using scissors.

Step 18

Open the folded piece. Those would be the bee’s wings.

Now apply some glue over the rectangles.

Step 19

Attach the wings on the back of the bee’s body.

Step 20

The Bee’s Head

Take the yellow cardstock and cut out four 1 cm strips then fold the ends of these strips as shown in the picture.

Step 22

Apply some glue on the folded ends.

Step 23

Start gluing them on the upper circle.

Step 24

Make an X shape first.

Step 25

Glue the rest of the strips.

We have just finished crafting the bee’s head.

Step 26

The Antennae

Draw two antennae on the black cardstock.

Step 27

Cut out the antennae using scissors.

Step 28

Fold the bottom parts of the antennae and add some glue on them.

Step 29

Glue the antennae on the bee’s head.

Step 30

The Eyes

Draw two circle eyes. We made these eyes using the black liner and the ruler with circle shapes.

Step 31

Glue the eyes on the head. Place them next to each other to make the bee look funny.

Step 32

Draw a circle mouth using the black liner.

Step 33

You’re done!

We find this bee to be so cute.
