Christmas - Hershey Nugget Treat Bags - Mini Tutorial

This makes a perfect gift item or stocking stuffer. So easy to make too AND who doesn't LOVE chocolate especially at the holidays. This is a mini-tutorial so that you can make the Nugget Treat Bags too.

All products used are Stampin' Up! with the exception of the Hershey Nuggets. I used the all milk chocolate (no nuts) nuggets for this which are wrapped in silver foil.

Supplies Used:
Very Vanilla card stock (item #101650) ... 4 1/4" wide x 5" high (score the 5" at 2 1/2")
Merry Moments Designer Series Paper (item #115672) ... pick your favorite patterns in the pack to use
.........6 pieces 1" x 3 " for wrapping your Hershey nuggets
.........1 piece 3" x 6" for the 3 ornaments to be punched out of
Winter Post Stamp Set (item #111780)
Ruby Red Classic Ink pad (item #102259)
Chocolate Chip Classic Ink pad (item #100908)
Crop-A-Dile (item #108362)
Gold Brads (item #104337) ... used 2
Earth Element Brads (item #106955) ... used 1 in old olive color for the snowflake center
3/16" Corner Rounder paper punch (item #109047)
Ornament Paper Punch (item #116794 - holiday mini catalog)
Sleigh Bells Ribbon (item #116795 - holiday mini catalog) ... 5" of ribbon
Sticky Strip (item #104294)
SNAIL Adhesive (item #104332)
Bone Folder (item #102300)
Medium Flat (4" x 6") Cellophane Bags (item #102757 --- there are 50 to a package for $4.50)

Directions:

1. Score the 5" side of the Very Vanilla card stock at 2 1/2", then crisply crease with the bone folder.
(note: if you have the Big Shot, you can make this tag using the Top Note die).

2. Take the 3/16" corner rounder and round the corners of the Very Vanilla card stock.

3. Winter Post Stamp Set:
.....Stamp the To & From with Chocolate Chip Classic Ink ... come in about 1/2" from left side
.....Stamp the Snowflake in Ruby Red about 1/2" in from the right side. You will want this close to the bottom of the paper because of the ribbon.

4. Using Sticky Strip attach your ribbon to the front of the tag and wrap around the front (do not bring ribbon around the back of the tag).

5. Using the 1/8" punch on the Crop-A-Dile, punch out the center of your ruby red snowflake. Insert the Old Olive Brad opening the prongs once inserted to keep the brad in place.

6. Set the tag aside. We'll come back to it shortly.

7. Wrap each of the Hershey Nuggets with a 1" x 3" piece of designer series paper. I find that putting a bit of sticky strip on the back side in the middle really helps.
.....Adhere the middle to the top of the nugget.
.....Wrap around to determine where your fold over will be and then attach sticky strip to the fold over area.

8. Put wrapped Hershey Nuggets in the cellophane bag.

9. Attach the cellophane bag to the tag using Sticky Strip.

10. Punch two holes all the way thru the front of the tag, the cellophane bag, and the back of the tag using the Crop-A-Dile 1/8" hole punch.
.....Put in the gold brads and open the prongs.

11. Punch out 3 ornaments using the Ornament Paper Punch and the designer series paper.
.....Using SNAIL adhesive, layer them on the back of the tag covering the prongs.

NOTES: Do not use staples to attach your tag and bags especially if being given to children. You can eliminate the brads too by using more sticky strip if the candy will be going to small children.

This is a very versatile gift idea that can be used year round for many different occasions just by changing the stamps and the paper used. Perfect for party favors, bridal showers, etc.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

What an excellent idea for small gifts to give to co-workers too! I have always been too (lazy-not enough time - you fill in the blank!) to make little boxes for a nugget gift. This will be an easy, quick gift!
