Instructions

  1. Set down your white piece of scrap paper and then lay out two of the label sheets side by side.

  2. Put black ink all over your stamp. For this project I used "Dots & Daisies" by Stampin' Up!.

  3. Stamp your image onto your labels. Make sure they are lined up well so each of the labels get stamped. Keep in mind that if you are using individual stamps that the image in the center of the label will be on the top of the candy.

  4. Take one of your makers and color in the flowers on the image you have just stamped.

  5. Do the same thing to all of the labels. Each label is for one piece of candy, so you could make the flowers a variety of colors, all one color, all different colors on each candy like I did or any other way you would like.

  6. Now take one of the candies and place them in front of you. Then peel off one of the labels and center it on the nugget.

  7. Holding the candy in one hand, wrap one side of the label around the candy with the other hand. If any of the wrapper is sticking up, now is a good time to stick it back down with the label.

  8. Then do the same thing with the other side of the label. The ends will meet in the middle on the bottom of the nugget overlapping slightly.

  9. This is what one individual nugget looks like finished, as well as a group of them together.

  10. I placed these in a candy dish for a party I was having and they were a huge hit.

  11. I also made one of these boxes and filled it with some decorated nuggets and gave it for a birthday gift. These had glitter added to them for a little extra punch.

  13. There are endless possibilities to these fun little candies. You could add glitter, ribbon, punches...just about anything you can think of! I would love to see what you create! I hope you learned something from this tutorial. Have a great day!
