The plaque itself is made from very thick card covered in torn up serviettes and then given a coat of matt paint. I find the matchpots made by Dulux make excellent base coats on most of the items I make. Hanging holes were punched in the top before painting and then popped into the airing cupboard for a quick drying. I used grunge board lettering which
I painted using Jo Sonja acrylic paint in black. I then did a black line around the edge and rubbed in some Inka Gold. I couldn't resist making a little Bee. He is made from two circles of yellow card, thin mercer cord for his antenna, black felt for the stripes and clear acetate with punched sequin waste behind for his wings which were cut using a heart punch. A piece of florist wire twisted together made the hanging.
