Day 8 of 13 Spooky Halloween Projects - The Hershey Nugget Flat Spooky Cat Card

If you need a lot of something (you know when you need to make 1 for everyone in the whole class J) this is a great project. 

For 1 Cut pumpkin pie cardstock at 3 x 7 ½, Score at 1 3/8, 1 7/8, 3 ¼, 3 ¾, burnish the folds.  For many trim your cardstock to 9 x 7 ½ do all your scoring and then cut into 3 pieces.

Fold into a box to hold the nuggets on the left side of the card. 

Now do your stamping.  I used the Spooky Cat face and the rat.  I wasn’t sure if I liked smokey slate (lighter) or basic grey, so I did a trial run.  I liked the lighter smokey slate as it looked like a ghost to me. 

Here's my stamping close up.. I love the little ghost like cat faces!

Do you like the running rats?

Now secure the box for the chocolates.  Use tear-tape or strong adhesive on the last flap to secure the “box” that holds the nuggets (see photo)

Insert 3 nuggets. Cut about 11-12” of the 7/8 black striped ribbon, it has wire edges so it really is easy to work with. Then tie it with 10” of twine.

Punch out the Spooky Cat, and stamp out a greeting to go either on the back or below the Spooky Cat.  I put a wink of Stella (little bit of sparkle) on the cat’s paws, ears and tail, can you see it??

Alternatively you can stamp and punch out a label and attach to the back with your message as I did (see above). 

Do you love it?  I do.. I love a quick and easy project to make for lots of people.
