Default Bee hive

Someone I work with would like me to make party invitations that look like a bee hive. Anyone have any great ideas on how I can do this? I have one bee stamp and that is about it.

The first thought that came to me was to create one with oval punches, but then I found these really cute hives in the gallery...

The paper crimped hive is super cute. You could also just make a simple paper piecing pattern either free hand or find one in a coloring book and make a pattern.

Dunno if honeycomb would work for you, but here's a thought for you:

It's spritzed with copper pearl-ex, so it looks sugary IRL.

Thank you. I was having total brain freeze and I did not even think of bubble wrap. I love the word window punch one. And I actually have that punch. Now I just have to decide if I want to do 50 of them.
Thanks again!!!!!!!!!
