I love this time of the year… craft fair season! Fall Festivals, Holiday Boutiques, Santa’s Workshops, I love them all. I have been crazy busy making projects for my first Fall Festival of the season. Since it’s a fall theme, but held before Halloween, I’m featuring a few Halloween items, a ton of fall projects, and a few general projects for those that don’t want any themed merchandise.
I’ll share some of my projects on the blog over the coming weeks. Today, I want to feature these Halloween Nugget Tins. This certainly wasn’t my original idea, but I tweaked other projects I’ve seen to fit what I wanted.
Since this is for a craft fair, I like to use up retired Close To My Heart papers and supplies that I have on hand. The papers that I used to cover the nuggets in the picture above was from a pack called “Spooktacular.” Each tin holds 12 decorated Hershey’s Nuggets.
The cardstock that I used to wrap around the tin was Hydrangea and also some black patterned paper with tiny strings and stars. I also added a spider web ribbon that I had left over from the Dollar Store.
The nuggets in this tin were wrapped with paper from the “Hooligans” paper packet. I used the same cardstock and ribbon to finish it off.
What I really had fun with was the cute bat tags! I used my Cricut machine and a bat image from a cartridge called, “Paper Doll Dress Up.” I also cut out the 1.5″ white circles with the Cricut, to save me from punching all of those shapes out individually.
The sentiment “Sweet Treats” was stamped in Sorbet Ink, using the Sweet Salutations stamp set. Sweet Salutations is an awesome set to use for gift tags, particularly when you are giving candy, cookies, or other treats as gifts.
After I stamped the sentiment onto the circles. I glued them to the bat image, making sure that the bat ears were peaking out from the top, and then punched a small hole in the top of each one. I used retired Hydrangea Waxy Flax to thread around the tins, through the holes, and tied a small bow. Cute!
I’ll see you in the craft room,
