Valentine Candies to go...

I think that I've mentioned it before, but I was kind of sad when Danielle graduated because now I don't have an excuse to make little things for the holidays for her to give out to her friends.  I guess now I'll have to wait (hopefully a VERY LONG time) so I can make things for the grandkids to pass out.  But she did ask me to make something for her friends at work - so WOO-HOO!! I still get to make things.

We decided on making some little nugget boxes to fill, so to work I went!
They hold 6 of the Hershey nugget's in each.  I made them out of Basic Black card stock and decorated them with Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White.  I used my Curly Label punch for the tag and stamped the heart from SU! discontinued Loving Heart's set in Real Red to add to the tag.  I made my own reinforcement you can say.  I took my 1/4" circle punch and punched out a piece of Real Red card stock then over the top of that I punched a hole with my 1/2" circle punch.  I like to use a reinforcement when I am using ribbon - it helps not to rip or tear the paper.  I then threaded some red organdy ribbon and a piece of black 1/4" grosgrain ribbon to tie it together.  It is hard to see but I stamped on the white card stock with an old background stamp from Art Impressions T2357 with Encore Gold ink.  It's hard to see in the picture, I'm sorry. 

That's what I've been working on, what about you??  I've got to get to work so I can show you something else tomorrow Ü  Have a super great evening!

If you know widows or widowers or other older singles, you could share with them. Sometimes Valentine's Day can be quite a sad day for them; some little treat would help brighten their day.

Love this idea. How did you make the boxes? I would love to give these out to friends and family.

Nice job, Joani!
LOVE them, I think I might try my hand at these! And, I like that it holds 6 candies! Not too many and not too 'stingy'! LOL
BIG HUG to you!
