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!

Happy first day fall!

In honor of the autumnal equanox I thought I would share another card from my favorite Stampin’ Up! stamp set, Vintage Leaves.  You can make so many different kinds of cards with this set such as masculine birthday cards, thank you cards, sympathy cards and blank note cards. To see the other cards I’ve made with this stamp set click HERE or on the Vintage Leaves tag on the sidebar to the right.

Vintage Leaves I am Thankful for you 2

Today’s card is a simple Thank you card using the new Painted Autumn designer series paper. The sentiment is from the new Painted Harvest stamp set. I also embossed the Cajun Craze cardstock for a little extra WOW with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend with lots of time to be creative.

Lovely As A Tree Fall Watercolor Background Card

Posted in Let's Get Creative
on August 18, 2017

Happy Friday! I have another watercolor background card for you today. But instead of using the baggie and marker technique like I did HERE,  I did it the traditional way using a paintbrush. I used Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive ink to get this beautiful sunset background.

Lovely as a Tree Watercolor sunset background

To prevent warping, always tape your watercolor paper to a hard surface before you begin. To get this sunset look first completely cover your paper in clean water. Then starting at the top paint yellow going back and forth in a sweeping motion. Continue in a sweeping motion switch to orange and finally green. In the picture below you can see where I tried masking off some mountains but I ended up not liking it and painted the whole top yellow.

Creating the Card

Use a heat gun to dry your paper completely before taking it off the board. Once it is dried it’s time to create your card. Stamp the Lovely As A Tree stamp in black to give the effect of a silhouette from the sunset. To create the Give Thanks medallion I stamped the Give Thanks stamp from Labels to Love stamp set (not available until Sept 1) on Vanilla cardstock in Soft Suade then cut it out on the Big Shot with the Layering Circles and matted it with a Pumpkin Pie card stock scalloped circle.  I mounted the watercolor paper on Early Espresso cardstock. Before putting all on a card base I attached a Crushed Curry ribbon for the finishing touch.
