A Nugget of Cute-ness!

Okay, here's the last project the girls will be making on Saturday... Hershey Nugget holders! The pattern is not my original creation - I saw them a training class my upline hosts... but I modified the design to make them suitable for the girls.

I used the Hostess Level I Prints Pack to make these, and I happened to use all polka-dot paper. They would be adorable in any of the patterns and they use very little paper so one sheet goes a long way! They are made with the Large Tag punch, with another scrap piece across the bottom. I also used some retired Organdy ribbon. You could easily use grosgrain, but I thought the Organdy looked nice and delicate for these soft colors. The sentiments come from various sets, and the little flower is from the punch in the Three For You punch box, along with a silver brad.

I'm not sure how many we will make on Saturday - it depends on how much time we have left. But we'll do at least one so they know *how* to make them. They are super simple and are great little favors for birthday parties... you can easily make them more elegant and use them for baby or bridal showers. Or even put one at each place setting for a dinner party.

In any case, now I'm off to start working on my March Stamp-a-Stack cards. I hope to have them done and ready for posting by March 1st. Wish me luck - I'm way overdue to hit a creative lull! :o)
