Bit-O-Honey - Honey Bear

Is this just the cutest little gift or what??  I simply love this bear and his teeny tiny little bear friends.  this was another project we made last weekend at our team meeting and I just love it!

  • Recipe:
  • Crushed Curry - 2 1/2" x 2" -  dry emboss with the Hexagons Embossing Folder 
  • Punch the 2" side with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch
  • Round the bottom corners using the Envelope Punch Board (or any corner rounder you have)
  • Stamp the Bear, Bees and Beehive onto Watercolor Paper using the Archival Basic Black 
  • Color the Bear with your Aqua Painter using a light shade of Soft Suede.  LET IT DRY
  • When dry, add another layer of Soft Suede, aiming towards the right side of the bear (where there would be shadows - keep in mind from which way your "light source" is coming.
  • Color the Bees with a Crushed Curry Marker
  • Color the Beehive with Crushed Curry in layers like you did the Bear.  The third layer should be Soft Suede.
  • Add the bees to the Bear
  • Add the beehive to the Honeycomb
  • Add the Bear on top.

Place three Bit-O-Honey candies into the Cello Bag and tie it up with the Crushed Curry solid Baker's Twine.  Remember to string it through the tag and tie it off.


Thank you for checking my blog today!  Thanks to Lorri for giving us such sweet make and takes that we can share with you!

  1. Sweet! This is just too cute! I already want that set for the elephant but now I know I want it for sure! I used to love the Bit of Honey candy a long time ago. Not everyone loves chocolate (well, I would think there is at least one person maybe) so this would be a cute treat for a change. I love the little bees buzzing around too. Gee I wonder if I have that EF or something similar as that just completed the little tag. I love this little treat holder. Lorri has such fun ideas! I hope I can find the single pieces of candy. Oh, I just had another inspiration. This could hold beeswax for my needlework group. Our group is hosting a regional seminar next year so I would have plenty of time to make these, if they loved them enough, for all the seminar participants. Oh, maybe I have bit off more than I can chew! No pun intended!

    1. LOL Chris - I think we all have "bit" off more than we can chew sometimes.

      What a great idea though for your needlework group. You could find a little container to hold the beeswax (instead of the bag) and tie this little tag to it. Perfect!

      I recommend coloring the little bee's BEFORE you die cut them. They are pretty tiny, but oh so cute!

  2. ADORABLE....just adorable! Not only do I feel a CASE coming on (with your permission) but I can already taste the Bit of Honey's....I totally forgot about them.....gotta run...TO THE STORE!!!!!

    1. My Father LOVED Bit-o-Honey. He would have loved this too.

      CASEing is what it's all about, right! This was one of our projects at the "Regional" event Lorri Heiling puts on for her team (of which I am a member - I just love Lorri!), so the credit goes to her.

      Thank you Susan, I feel these candies going on my shopping list as well!
