Hi Stampers. Lately, I’ve been keeping myself busy working on items for the upcoming craft fairs. These are hershey nuggets, wrapped in designer series paper, adhered to a tray, inserted into a “pretzel bag”, with a tag topper added. These would make great stocking stuffers or a small gift for those that you want to “give a little something to”.
To wrap the Hershey Nuggets, I cut the designer series paper into 3.25″ x 1″ strips. I put a glue dot at either end and wrapped them around, securing them on the back side. I then made a ‘tray’, by cutting a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock 8.5″ x 2.25″ and scored 3/8″ from each side. I then ran the snail down the middle and adhered the nuggets.
The ‘tray’ was then inserted into a “pretzel bag”. I found these in the baking section at several stores. (The bags measure 2.25″ x 9.75″). To make the tag topper, I cut a piece of Garden Green card stock 2.5″ x 4″, scored at 2″. I then cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock 2″ x 1.75″ and a piece of Very Vanilla card stock 1.75″ x 1.5″. I inked the back of the sentiment stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Merry Everything stamp set with the Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Garden Green markers and then stamped onto the Very Vanilla card stock. These two pieces were adhered to the Garden Green topper with snail adhesive and then stapled to the bag with the Stampin’ Up! handheld stapler. I hope they sell. If not, some of my friends just got a sneak peek at one of their Christmas gifts. LOL
