I was lucky to have been a vendor at a wonderful craft fair hosted by St. Frances Cabrini Church over Thanksgiving weekend. There was something for everyone there. I had a great corner spot and was able to share my absolute love for paper crafting with those who passed my tables.
I thought this week for my posts, I’d share some of the stocking stuffers I made for the event. For today’s post, I’m sharing the old tried and true Hershey Nugget Sleeve.
I will admit that somehow I had never come into contact with a Hershey Nugget until I started back up with Stampin’ Up! in 2016. Kisses, sure – Miniatures, you bet – Full size bar, don’t get me started. But Nuggets and I apparently had just missed each other on several occasions.
When I started venturing out of my “I like to make cards” box with Stampin’ Up! and into the 3D creations and treats realm, I realized that I must come to know the Hershey Nugget. We made up for lost time.
The Hershey Nugget Sleeve is always one of my top sellers and there are so many directions you can go in the decorations. You can go understated (as I did above) or over-the-top. It’s a great little treat. It’s perfect for a stocking, to put on top of a gift package, or to hand out to co-workers.
To make this little package of goodness, you will (generally) need:
- Cardstock: 5 1/4″ x 2″, scored on the 2″ side at 1/4″ and 1 3/4″
- Designer Series Paper: 5 pieces cut at 1″ x 3″
- Cellophane bag that measures 2″ x 8″
- Anything to decorate the top of your bag
This treat goes together pretty quickly. I used regular transparent tape to wrap 5 Hershey Nuggets with the DSP. You’ll have to be mindful if your DSP has an obvious direction.
After scoring and burnishing the cardstock, I loaded it up with my wrapped Nuggets and inserted them into the cellophane bag. For the example I show here, I punched out a piece of DSP using the Label Me Lovely punch, folded it in half and stapled it over the top of the bag. You can decorate as you like. I used elements from the Sweetest Christmas Collection but really – there are no limits as to what you can do.
I used cellophane bags purchased from Amazon here (Stampin’ Up! doesn’t sell this size anymore).
