InKing Royalty Blog Hop: Birthday Nugget Holder

InKing February blog hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around BIRTHDAY. It’s always special to celebrate the birthday of someone you love, so handmade birthday cards are always fun to share. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Create this nugget holder using Stampin' Up! Needlepoint Nook. Handmade by Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

What could be sweeter than a couple Hershey’s nuggets dressed up with extra special packaging? This nugget holder was based on a tic tac holder shown to me by Kadie Labadie. Thanks, Kadie!  I’ll share the tic tac holders tomorrow along with a video demonstration on how I modified it for today’s nugget holder.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Start with a 3 3/4 x 2 1/2 piece of Berry Burst card stock. Score the short distance at 1 1/2 and 2 1/4.

TIP: I discovered that the 2 7/8 x 7/8 (approx.) die from Stampin’ Up! Rectangle Stitched Dies wraps a Hershey’s nugget perfectly. I used the die with Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper and wrapped two Hershey’s nuggets (silver). Adhere around the nugget with Glue Dots or Tear Tape Adhesive to keep in place.

Wrap Old Olive Linen Thread around the outside of the nuggets, thread through a Berry Burst Flower Button and secure with a bow.  Adhere the nuggets to the Berry Burst base with Glue Dots or Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Cut two 1 1/4 x 2 1/4 pieces and one 1/2 x 2 1/4 piece of Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper to adhere (Snail Adhesive) to the outside panels, front and back, and the spine.

Wrap with Berry Burst 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon and secure with a bow.

SAB Coordination Product Call Me Cupcake Thinlits Dies 150072

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Start with a 4 x 5 3/8 card base of Crumb Cake card stock. 

Use the Big Shot and Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies to crop the following pieces: 3 3/4 x 5 1/8 (largest die) with Very Vanilla card stock, 3 x 4 1/4 die with Very Vanilla card stock, and 3 1/2 x 1 5/8 die with Flirty Flamingo card stock, cut to expose only 3/8″.

Adhere the largest and Flirty Flamingo rectangles with Snail Adhesive.  Adhere the 3 x 4 1/4 rectangle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use the Big Shot and Call Me Cupcake Dies to crop the following:  Vellum card stock (cloche). Flirty Flamingo card stock (frosting & flower), So Saffron card stock (baking cup), Early Espresso card stock (cupcake & stand), Very Vanilla card stock (hearts).  TIP: I trimmed the base of the cupcake with Paper Snips for a more modern look.  Adhere the frosting with Stampin’ Dimensionals, the flower with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional, and the rest with Snail Adhesive. 

Use a 1/4″ circle punch (retired) or hole punch to crop a piece of Early Espresso card stock and adhere to the flower center with Snail Adhesive. 

Use the Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment in Early Espresso Ink onto Very Vanilla card stock.  Crop with the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, and coordinating Layering Oval Framelits Die.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Tie a piece of Crumb Cake Nature’s Twine into a bow and adhere with a Mini Glue Dot. TIP:  Roll the Mini Glue Dot a bit (to reduce it’s size) so that it doesn’t show below the knot.

Use the Big Shot and Beautiful Layers envelope liner die to crop a piece of polka dot Flirty Flamingo 6×6  Designer Series Paper for Very Vanilla Medium Envelope flap. Cut to 2″ high and adhere with Snail Adhesive. Here’s a quick video demonstration with more tips on using the Beautiful Layers Dies.
