SU Stars 1st Blog Hop & BLOG CANDY!!

Welcome to my very first ever Blog Hop!

If you have been hopping along, you should have arrived from Shari's site, Shari's Stamp Pad. If not, you can start at the beginning here.

I wanted to do a fun project for my hop spot and with Halloween being the theme what better project to feature than something involving CANDY!? I have made three different sized nugget boxes to share with you all today! (Individual pictures of each & measurements further down)

Aren't they cute?! They were soo FUN to make!

The Spooky Box is a 1x6 nugget box. 

Stamps: Wicked Cool
Ink: Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories: Small & Large Rhinestones, Dimensionals, Decorative Label Punch 1/8' Black Taffeta Ribbon, Sticky Strip

The Paisley Pumpkin Box is a 2x4 nugget box.

Stamps: Paisley Prints, Everyday Flexible Phrases
Ink: Peach Parfait, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive
Markers: Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Peach Parfait, Soft Suede, Old Olive
Paper: Peach Parfait, Pear Pizazz, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede
Accessories: Decorative Label Punch, Curly Label Punch, Adhesive Leaves, Sticky Strip, 1/4' Old Olive Grossgrain, Dimensionals

The Witch Box is a 3x3 nugget box.

Stamps: Fang-Tastic
Ink: Basic Black, Pear Pizazz, Whisper White
Markers: Concord Crush, Pear Pizazz, Peach Parfait
Paper: Whisper White, Pear Pizazz, Concord Crush, Peach Parfait, Basic Black 
Accessories: Spider Web Embossing Folder, Dimensionals, Curly Label Punch, Sticky Strip

You can use Avery 5160 labels to wrap around your nuggets after decorating or cut your strips at 1x 3 1/4. I chose to cut mine out of cardstock as the labels are a little smaller in width giving you less decorating room. Be sure to use the sticky strip to adhere your cardstock to the nuggets as the cardstock is also heavier than the labels!

Now, as many of you are probably wondering, here is how you can qualify for the following
