Sweet Treat Thursday -- Nuggets Treat

Sweet Treat Thursdays are all about food -- our other favorite topic -- and features ways to embellish/wrap/present something edible. CAUTION: May be hazardous to your waistline!

Hi everyone,

Here's a quick and easy project for you --

1) Take your Stampin' Up!'s Two Tags Bigz Die and your Big Shot die-cutting machine and one layer of your fav DSP and another of coordinated cardstock. 

2) Pass them through the Big Shot. 

3) Glue the two together, taking care not to obstruct the slit at the top (trust me on this one).

4) Score at 1-5/8" and 2-1/2". Crease well with a bone folder.

5) With Mini Glue Dots, adhere 2 Hershey's Nuggets between the two folds.

6) Stamp "to - from" from the A Cute Christmas stamp set on Vanilla CS and punch out with the Large Oval Punch.  Write the names with a Stampin' Write Marker and sponge ink around the edges.

7) With a decorative paper clip, hang the name tag from the slit at the top.

8) Align the 2 ends of the tag together and use the hole made from the die as a guide to punch a hole through the 2nd layer and pass a flower brad through the hole.

Voilà! You've got yourself a quick and easy treat for a place setting or a just-because treat to give someone.

Love the yummy Jolly Holiday DSP. The colors are so fun -- Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive. And because the whole thing is held together by a brad, it's easy access to the chocolate... and THAT's what I like about it :-) After all, what's the point in giving out chocolate if you have to fight to get to it!


I hope you'll give this a try. Have nice stampin' day !!
