be my honey


For as long as I can remember, the kids have always loved honey sticks. When they were little, I used to get them from the honey stand at Pike Place Market. Nowadays these honey sticks are available at almost every grocery store around here.


We were getting groceries the other day when the kids spotted the honey sticks and of course we came home with a bunch. I refused to give them to the girls right away though. Not until I had dressed up the sticks first.

This is what I came up with:


I started with a heart shape and made 2 offsets. I imported the bear, typed in the text, and made offsets of that. I changed the Line Style of one of the hearts to stitched lines and added two 1/4" circles on the tag. Next, I used the Line tool to add two short cut lines to the circles so that I could slot the honey straws through.

To finish off the project, I print-and-cut out the tags, slotted the honey sticks in and added the arrow parts.


I think the honey sticks are cute enough to give away now. Nah....I'll keep them until Friday.
