Nugget Purses

I make little favors for the sweet senior sisters at church that get together each month for a luncheon. So, this month I made these cute nugget purses. I know they were popular a couple years ago. I learned how to make them from a picture my stampin up demonstrator showed me. I just tweaked it to my liking.

What I did: The purse is made from a strip of CS 5"x 1 3/4" long scored at 1, 2 1/2 and 3 1/2. This makes the tent with the flap over the front. I think its pretty self explainatory, the front, i cut 1/2" down from fold to center on each side to form a point. I adhered a piece of black CS 1 3/4" x 1 1/8" under the flap and cut a mat using edging scissors.

I hole punched 1/8" hole 1/4" from each side centered on fold at top of purse for the straps to go through. I did not glue the ribbon, I knotted each end twice on the inside after threading it through the holes. I prefer 1/8" ribbon, it looks more like a real purse strap to me. This ribbon here is just the 50 cents a roll of 10 yds satin stuff. Then I folded the purse close and punched a 1/16" hole centered at the point for the brad. Easy right? Then just use a small piece of double sided tape to hold the nugget in place, centered inside the purse bottom down. I say small piece of tape because it just needs to keep it from moving, but allows easy removal so recipient can keep the shell of the purse for reuse or sample. Or they will just rip your hard work apart to get at that chocolate!!!!

I love these NEW DOUBLE CHOCOLATE Hershey Nuggets. They are half milk and half dark chocolate. And the wrapper is one solid piece. No sleeve to move around. Have fun.
