Little Bit O'Honey Treat Packaging

I grew up in a very small town, next door to my grandparents.  When my cousins would come to visit each summer, we would walk the one block down the street to the *only* store in town (that had previously been owned by my grandpa).  We would each be clutching our dollars in our hand, and would load up on candies that were a penny, or a nickle.  To be honest, my favorite candy was Swedish Fish, but I also loved Bit O'Honey candies - even though they were definitely second.  After we made our purchases, we walk back home, each carrying our own little bag of treats.  It's a sweet memory that my cousins and I share every time we get together.  

These simple little treat packages are great for giving out as a little thank you, or as a classroom treat.  The fussy cutting on the bee and hive may seem a little intimidating, but it does go very quickly.  The little cellophane bag was purchased from the specialty baking section at Wal-Mart.  I added a piece of Hazelnut Blend card stock, with bees stamped in Butter Cream, inside the bag.

A die cut circle splattered with Gold Silk, was folded in half over the opening of the bag, and attached with White Liner tape.  I added a sentiment banner and my colored images to the bag topper.
And, yes, I had a few "nostalgic" pieces of Bit O'Honey as I made this.  At least it wasn't a huge bag of Swedish Fish!

Thanks for stopping by!

Much love,
