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.
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.
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.
Use the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform and Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies to crop the flowers from the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper. TIP: Place dies on the Designer Series Paper where you can get a fairly solid image of the needlepoint yarn texture. Adhere both flowers as shown with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For a touch of bling, add Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the flower centers.
