Here is the finished product "Honey Bee Mine" how can you resist buying this for YOUR Honey for Valentine's Day? A jar of Green Hive Honey Farms Raw Honey with 4oz of delicious Honeycomb, a special label, a heart shaped tag, a cellophane bag, dried rosebuds, a sparkly ribbon and the inestimable addition of a handmade tissue paper
paeonia on the top?
I started by designing a special label based off the original design I created a few months ago...of course it still had to be on a pastel pink background but this time we choose a round label because of the softness of the shape...no sharp corners here!
Next I created a heart shaped hang tag which is tied with a ribbon to the package - you can write your love note on the back...how sweet!
Above is one of the first try-outs which was greatly liked but not practical for packing or shipping and the label was just to get a feel for the direction
My work surface covered in Valentine's accoutrements.....
My first two tissue paper paeonias - so easy to make - and some lovely dried rosebuds
from the Belfast Coop
and more paeonias...I need to make quite a lot but they are very satisfying and soothing to make... did I EVER mention how much I like pink?
I couldn't resist sharing this picture....my favourite colour combination...YUM!!
