Bottling Honey in Test Tubes - VIDEO

I received a call from a client who was getting married and wanted to provide party favors for her guests, which numbered 100 individuals.  I could not provide her with 100 bottles of honey as that would be both expensive and eat substantially into my inventory.  I suggested that we put together 100 test tubes of honey as fun favors, with each tube holding about 3/4 of an ounce of honey.

We bought the test tubes on Amazon here.

After filling each (a bit of a learning curve here, but watch the video to see how we were able to accomplish this, in bulk, with little hassle).  Here is what they looked like corked and washed of sticky honey residue:

We then dipped the ends in melted wax to seal the corks and create an artistic drip line, much like a Maker's Mark bottle, from the seal.

We designed and ordered labels at Evermine (formerly MyOwnLabels).  These are 1.25 x 3.75 inch labels.  They fit the test tubes beautifully.
