Wrapped Hershey Nuggets

Good morning and happy Wednesday fellow crafters! Welcome back to another post for my Craft Fair Series 2017.

Today I am working on one of my best sellers the wrapped Hershey Nuggets. These wrapped candies are perfect for your holiday table, a teacher/coworker gift, a thank you gift or even a hostess gift. They look so lovely and the cost to make them is low enough you make them for all the different holidays this season.

Here I am making Thanksgiving themed wrapped nuggets.  Don’t you think these would be the perfect accent to your Thanksgiving table!

Wrapped Hershey Nugget Details

All you need for this craft is:

  • a bag of Hershey Nuggets
  • long narrow cellophane bags (sold in my shop)
  • designer paper
  • heavy cardstock
  • strong adhesive
  • paper trimmer and scoring tool
  • ribbon or twine to tie off bag opening

Wrapped Hershey Nuggets

 

First cut the designer paper 1″ X 3″. You can make 12 with paper from a 6″ X 6″ paper pad

Next cut the cardstock 2″ X 6″ and score each side 1/4″ making a long tray. Again you can get 12 from a 12″ X 12″ piece of cardstock

Wrap 6 nuggets with the designer paper using a strong adhesive

Put nuggets on cardstock tray and insert into cellophane bag

Tie bag and add a decorative tag. That’s all!

To see how this is done you can check out Amber’s how to  video  HERE

Merry Cafe | Witches Brew Halloween Card

National Coffee Day

Happy National Coffee Day! Did you know coffee was discovered by a goat herder in Ethiopia? It is said that he discovered coffee after noticing that his goats upon eating berries from a certain tree, became so spirited that they did not want to sleep at night.

So in honor of this day I designed a fun Halloween card using our new Merry Cafe stamp set.

I inked up a white doily and the watercolor swooshes are from Beautiful You. You can find these and all the other supplies in my shop by clicking on the images below

Painted Harvest | Blue Sunflower Thank You Card

Painted Harvest Blue Sunflower

If you love fall then you will love this new stamp set by Stampin’ Up! It’s called Painted Harvest and it prints the most beautiful watercolor sunflowers.  But the really cool thing is the layered parts.

How I Made This Card

Because the petals are layered stamps you can create any color sunflower that you dream of. To get the coloring for my Blue Sunflower I first stamped the larger petals in Pool Party on Very Vanilla Cardstock and then the detailing petals in Tranquil Tide.  The center is in Crumb Cake.  I can’t take credit for coming up with this color combination though.  I found it on Pinterest by Laura Lynn Hernandez.  HERE is the card she made.

These are note cards size 3 1/2″ X 5″  I ordered pre-cut and scored cards from Stampin’ Up! and covered the front with a piece of Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper . Then mounted on Cajun Craze Cardstock that was cut with the layering squares scalloped edge. I cut my Blue Sunflower with the stitched shapes square.

The sentiment is stamped with Soft Suede on Very Vanilla 1″ X 3 1/2″ inch

I hope you liked this card idea. This is one of the most popular items in the new Holiday Catalog, so I recommend you order it as soon as possible. Once they run out there won’t be any more. You won’t regret getting it! Remember you can purchase any of the supplies I used to make this card in my shop. Just click on the images below to get there.

Hello Fall | Spooky Cat

Posted in Let's Get Creative
on September 11, 2017

I know fall doesn’t officially start until Sept 21 but here in Texas it sure feels like fall.  This past week we have been waking up to cool crisp mornings and our afternoons have been sunny and mild.  It has inspired me to get all my fall decorations out of the attic and filled our home with fall leaves and pumpkins. Even Merlin loves this time of year!

New Spooky Cat Stamp Set

And speaking of fall have you seen the new holiday catalog? You will love the new beautiful fall stamp sets this year.  And the new Spooky Cat stamp set and coordinating paper are a real treat for all your Halloween cards and party decorating needs.  Here are some Halloween cards I have been creating for my upcoming card class  with the new Spooky Cat stamp set. Links to the supplies I used are listed below.
