These bee tags and tickets are wicked cool and super fun to use in your junk journals or mixed media! I wanted some pretty graphics that I could print out and use in my artwork and figured why not share them with my peeps! You can use these in your personal art AND in finished pieces for sale.

Why I Needed Bee Tags
Okay, no one “needs” bee tags, but bees are my absolute favorite animal (the are the only tattoo I have!)
I love to use them in my artwork and was having a trouble finding a unique blend so that they weren't all so plain jane all the time.
Then I remembered that I am a graphic artist and decided to make myself an array of bee tags!
Here is my bee flip pages junk journal in all it's bee-y glory!

How To Print The Bee Tags
I tried printing these tags onto regular copy paper first but they are super saturated with color and that did not work well at all
Instead I went and got some presentation paper from Office Depot which is good for printing AND is a little heavier weight of paper so the tags can stand on their own without any backing.
The little pink bee tag is just the paper with no backing. That said, on most of the “real” journalling tags I went ahead and used some art glitter glue to glue colored index cards to back.
Free Printables Printed Out
Here are the tags and tickets printed out!
What Is Included?
You get three different printable pages of bee tags and tickets. These are for printing on at home printers using 8.5″ X11″ standard letter sized paper.
These are a cross between vintage ephemera a modern new look! I call this my Modern Steampunk style! I KNOW there are a bunch of free vintage images out there, but but I like mine to be a bit more edgy!
Using The Bee Tags In My Art Journal Page
I had a gal use some of the tags and tickets in her bee journal and she shared it with me… how cute is this? You can see how she has bee tickets sticking out here and there!

Licensing of the Tags
I used a variety of sources for the bees in these tags including Graphics Fairy (pictures in the public domain) and Big Stock Photo. All images were purchased and the designs are my own.
You can use these for any of your own personal artwork or for finished products that you sell on Etsy or any other online store.
You can not distribute or sell the collage sheets for any reason.
