What you will need:
soup can (you can also use a crystal light container, empty paint can, or anything that has straight sides)
Clear stamp set- Honey Bear (The Cat's Pajamas)
Memento tuxedo black ink
Copic markers (or whatever you wish to color the images with)
Stampin' UP! Marker- real red
Cardstock- white (Gina K. Designs)
Designer paper- Atomic Soup: Pinch of Electrons (Jillibean Soup)
Craft wire (The Beadery)
Mini clothespin (Hero Arts)
Glue Dots and adhesive (Glue Glider Pro- Glue Arts)
Optional- glitter (Doodle Bug) and Quickie Glue pen
Step one: Empty and clean out your soup can. Remove label.
Step two: Measure height of can and cut a strip of patterned paper to wrap around can.
Step three: Adhere paper around can. (Notice that I left the top and bottom edge showing. The paper fits nicely between the rims if you measure it just a bit smaller than the can.)
Step four: Stamp images on white cardstock. (I used Gina K. Design's pure luxury white cardstock. I like how it holds the ink and it is very smooth.)
Step five: Color the bear, bees and honey pot. I used Copic markers to color my images.
Step six: Cut out images. *I cut along the edges of all the images and cut the sentiment out in a square shape (see step seven below)
Step seven: Run a red marker along the edge of the sentiment. (It is important to use a water based marker, like Stampin' Up, on this step so the color stays on the edge of the paper.)
Step eight: Cut a section of the patterned paper to use under the sentiment. I cut along the pattern so that I kept the honeycomb shape.
Step nine: Wrap a piece of beading wire around a pencil and slide off. (I used beading wire because it is very easy to manipulate and you can cut it with regular scissors.)
Step ten: Adhere a bee to the end of the wire with a glue dot and manipulate the wire until you get the desired flight path for the bee. Adhere under sentiment panel with a glue dot.
Step eleven: I filled the container with a bag of candy hearts and tied it with a bow. Clip the sentiment onto the bow using a mini clothespin.
Step twelve: Repeat steps nine and ten to add a flying bee to the bear image as shown below. Attach bear image to can.
