Hokey Pokey


The challenge over at Project Tuesday this week is to create a box using this tutorial.

 I was inspired by Nigella Lawson and decided to use her Hockey Pockey Recipe found here. I was watching one of her shows where she makes this to take to a dinner party as a gift for the hostess. I decided to make a box to put them in, but have not yet decided on the sentiment- hence no tag- ANY IDEAS??

See the Hokey Pokey aka Honeycomb through the window and are yummmmmy :-) especially if you have a sweet tooth like me. I used a bee rubber stamp to create the background paper on the scalloped circle and colored the bees in using my copic markers. The DP is an old one from BasicGrey that I have had in my stash for ages.

And this is what happened as soon as I told my kids I was finished taking the photo's (after much begging....).

Well, naturally the Stampin UP set, "
Smarty Pants" comes to mind that has the sentiment,"What if the Hokey Pokey really is what it's all about" You could mask off everything except the words, Hokey Pokey
