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.


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.

Use the Stamparatus to stamp the “Happy Day” sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays in Berry Burst Ink onto Whisper White card stock.  Crop with the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform and smallest narrow die from Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  Snip off the left side with Paper Snips.  Add Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, tuck under ribbon knot and adhere.

  8. Robbye Hamilton

    I would love to receive this. It is so beautifully done.

  9. How perfect is this?! I love everything about it and am so glad I was in your craft room when you designed it. I love that this rectangle works so perfectly with the nuggets – any larger would have completely covered the candy, so this size is perfect. I love the little flowers you used as accents. It’s as if they were made just for this project. Thanks so much for hopping with us today, Mary! It’s an honor to include you in our hop. ♥

    • Thanks, BK. It was lovely to hop along with all the talent of the InKing Royalty team. I got the added benefit of having your here while we debated on the best stitched rectangle size as well as work out the “engineering” for two nuggets!

  10. What a sweet (literally) package, Mary. So adorable and I love the idea of using the stitched rectangle around the nuggets. So clever and adds that little something something. Have a great day!

  11. Julie DiMatteo

    Oh my goodness – I love everything about this project! And what an amazing find with the rectangle die fitting around the nuggets! LOVE! Thank you for hopping with us this month, Mary!

    • I loved that little “nugget” of discovery with the stitched rectangle. The next size up works, too. Covers more of the nugget and a wee bit wide but another option!

  12. Michelle Quinno

    This is such a super sweet package, Mary!!

  13. This little project turned out BEYOND ADORABLE!!!!!
    Using the Rectangle Stitched Dies was BRILLIANT my friend.
    I think my favorite part (next to the yummy Berry Burst Ribbon) is the fun way you packaged up the nuggets. OH SO CUTE Mary.

  14. Oh my gosh!! This is SO CUTE! I love it! I can’t wait to make it😍. Thanks for the tip about using the Stitched Rectangle die for the nugget wrapper!👍

  15. This is such a super little treat holder. And chocolate is perfect for any occasions! I will be casing this one. Thank you!
