Making a bee Line

As soon as I saw this {Pin}spirational Pic#184, I knew what I wanted to create.  

I made a bee card a few weeks back which I was pretty chuffed about but I thought afterwards I could do better.  So I devised a spinning mechanism using magnets.  I have a market coming up so I made a few - 15 bees in total, though some are still waiting to be made up.  Here they are all lined up after I had coated them with glossy accents and sprinkled them with glitter.

The best part of all is that the bee can be removed and placed on a fridge or radiator or other suitable metallic surface

The current theme at Cuttlebug Mania is It's a Zoo Out There, so I'll be entering there as well - a Bee is an animal after all!!!

Supplies : Verve The Buzz Stamp set and matching die set; Verve Amazing Adjectives; WMS Stitched Rectangles; WMS Scalloped Rectangles
