All of a sudden I was craving yellow and needed to make something using the color of daffodils.
I recalled feeling like this before, checked my blog archives and sure enough it was the same time last year that I wrote a post called craving yellow. I find it very cool how our blogs become diaries of our creativity.
Never one to discard a container, especially bottles as sweet as these from honey, it was time to take these little bears out of hibernation to play. First, I removed their stubborn labels which required soaking in warm soapy water followed by some Goo Gone. [I would actually prefer to use something less toxic. Any suggestions?]
I decided to stick to a palette of pale pinks and yellows when dressing up the little bears with ribbons, buttons, forget-me-nots and tags.
I filled them with a strand of pearls, yellow beads, lemon candies and ribbon in sunny shades.
Sweet for display, fun as a party favor, or inspired gift packaging for your honey bunch.
