Create quick and easy handmade cards using the Bee Builder Punch by Stampin Up! The Bee Builder Punch has three shapes: the bee body, wings, and a heart. You can punch out all three in different colors to create a special card front. Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the punched images and give your craft more layers and texture!

You can use the small heart as a second pair of wings or use the larger wings as a bigger heart. The bee body can even be turned into a conversation bubble. No matter how you use this punch, your papercrafting projects will have their own buzz around them!
