A Little Something

Stampin up pink flamingo matchbox duo  

I needed a quick, "little something" for two friends who hosted a garden tea party today.  Very fun and chic!  These Hershey Nugget boxes are always a hit.  The Pink Flamingo Designer Series Paper was bright and cheerful . . . the perfect way to package chocolate goodies.

  • Stampin up matchbox messages scallop Pink Flamingo Designer Series Paper  was cut to 3" x 1 1/6" to make a darling wrap around each nugget.
  • The butterfly rhinestone is from a clear rhinestone brad. 
  • I prefer textured card for the matchbox base . . . it's heftier than designer paper.
  • The Real Red Satin Ribbon is part of a collection of nine delicious colors in the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog.

  1. Hi Chrystal: I used the Stampin’ Up! Bigz Matchbox Die to cut box shapes and assembled. Very easy. Hugs and good luck in your new endeavor. M

  2. Hello Mary, Im a new demo and would like to know if you would be willing to share the nugget box instructions. Thanks.

  3. I am so jelous. I am sitting here with snow and you got to attend a garden party today! And your work is gorgeous too! I love the bright colors! Thanks for inspiring.

    Geez Mary, you raise the bar with every entry! I love looking at your site each day, for inspiration and ideas. I’ve started asking myself, “What would Mary do?” when I’m not totally satisfied with my creations. I never quite achieve your level of expertise, but you’re helping me develop my skills. Thanks SO much for the constant push!

    Hi Priscilla: I had to chuckle with your comment: What would Mary do? Honestly, I think the “art” of paper crafting and stamping comes down to practice. That’s what keeps my ideas sharp . . . not something in my DNA. Very achievable for anyone 🙂 Hugs, M

  5. SO cute! Just found you via Splitcoast. Looking forward to taking a look around! (I’m a new demo, just under six months!)

  6. These are gorgeous. I love the bright colours.

    Thanks for the tip about using textured paper for the matchbox base — it makes sense, and I love the textured papers!

  8. These are absolutely adorable, I just love them. You make everything look so beautiful. :). I do not own a big shot, but noticed they have some awesome dies.
