Valentine Nugget Tin Teacher Gifts
I resorted back to the old Hershey’s Nugget Tins for my kid’s teachers Valentine gifts again this year. (Hey, they are new teachers and haven’t seen them before. Right? They don’t know that I have made these for the past 2 years for the other teachers. LOL!) Click here and here and here and here to see more of my nugget tins. *Ü*
I used my well loved PTI Holiday Treats stamp set along with PTI’s Borders & Corners - Hearts set to make the tags. The tags were punched out using Marvy’s extra jumbo and super jumbo scallop heart punches. I also used CTMH’s new Sweetheart Paper Pack and some Cranberry Grosgrain Ribbon for the wrap. (The ribbon is on sale on my website right now and is only available while supplies last!) I found some cute small white bags at Walmart and stamped the outside of the bags with CTMH’s new Love Ya! stamp set.
The front of the bags are stamped with the cute “XO” stamp from the Love Ya! set, in Tulip ink and then the small heart is stamped in the middle of the “O” with Baby Pink ink. I added the tags to the bag with some Cranberry Grosgrain Ribbon.
The back of the bags are stamped with the “You fill my day with Xs and Os” stamp in Tulip ink and then a few little Baby Pink hearts are stamped around it.
This is what the tin looks like without the belly band. For those of you that haven’t seen these Hershey’s Nugget projects before, I stamped some standard sized address labels and wrapped them around the chocolate nuggets. The label fits perfectly around the candy. (Check back on Monday for another fun Hershey’s Nugget project.)
Stay tuned for more Valentine projects...
