Weekly Tutorial - Nugget Tins

This week's tutorial is putting together a simple candy gift idea using Hershey Nuggets Candies and metal tins. I found a great tutorial on SCS, here's the link, if you don't have or can't get the tins in time for the holidays. The SCS tutorial shows you how to make your boxes.

My tutorial will be a quick "how to" using the tins I found at These tins are size code THN8. They cost me approximately $1.35 each with the shipping charges.

Hinged cover metal tin, Hershey Nuggets Candy, printed/designer paper, cutter, adhesive, ribbon, embellishments

How To:
1. Cut your printed paper (for mine I used Dashing DSP from Stampin' Up!) into strips. Each strip will need to be 1 inch X 3 1/4 inches. You will need 12 strips to complete this project.

2. Adhere one strip to each nugget, creating a new sleeve or cover for each piece of candy. You will need 12 nuggets to fill each tin.

3. Once your candies are covered, put them into the metal tin.

4. Wrap the tin with ribbons and add some embellishments. I used a tag with a stamped image and a little hemp twine to attach the tag.

It's really that simple! I plan to leave one for my postman and some for the UPS delivery guys. Just a little something to wish them a Merry Christmas! Quick and easy and very inexpensive!
