Mostly everyone loves chocolate, right?  Well, except for my sister-in-law, but MOST people love chocolate 🙂  

These adorable Hershey Nugget Sleeves are super easy to make and make great little gifts for co-workers, friends, the mailman or even stocking stuffers.  You can even make them for any occasion by swapping out the Christmas patterned paper and using something generic or other holiday-related (Think: Easter eggs for Easter, Flowers for birthdays, hearts for Valentine’s Day – you get the picture).

As I said, they are super easy to make.

Needed Supplies:

How to Make the Hershey Nugget Sleeves:

Start by wrapping the Hershey Nuggets in patterned paper and securing with some Snail Adhesive.

Score your 5″ x 2″ cardstock on the 2″ side, 1/4″ on each side as shown below.

Slide the end of the scored cardstock into the cellophane bag as shown below.

Slide the wrapped nuggets into the bag one at a time and push the cardstock sleeve down further into the bag as you go.  I’ve found that if you try to put the nuggets in first or the cardstock sleeve in first then they all get stuck.  Doing it this way is the quickest and easiest way to make these Hershey Nuggets Sleeves.

Stamp the Reindeer from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set onto Sahara Sand cardstock using the Soft Suede Ink. (TIP:  stamp with the antlers down to make punching easier later)

Color Rudolph’s nose with Light Cherry Cobbler (or any red), his face with Light Crumb Cake and his antlers with Dark Crumb Cake. You may also wish to color the inside of his ears with Light Flirty Flamingo.

On a scrap piece of Real Red cardstock, stamp sentiment (I used “a Joyful Christmas” from Signs of Santa Stampin’ Up! stamp set), then punch with the Classic Label Punch.

Adhere the reindeer and tag with greeting to the front of the bag and tie with ribbon (15 1/2″ length).

I love using Stampin’ Up! products because you are guaranteed to have your papercrafting projects match.  Real red cardstock will always perfectly match Real Red ink, for example.

The Stampin’ Blends markers are amazing for coloring and shading for every type of coloring project. No ugly lines and perfect blends.  They are high-quality, alcohol-based, dual-tip markers for stamping, art journaling, Bible journaling and other paper crafts.  They are my absolute favorite markers!

What did you think of the Hershey Nugget Sleeves project?  Aren’t they just adorable?

Visit each week for a new stamping or papercrafting project.
