Aloha!!! I posted this to my Facebook... thought you would all like the step by step tutorial of this project as well... enjoy!!!
You will need:
- Hershey's Candy Nuggets
- Cardstock Strip of 3-1/2" x 1"
- 1-1/4" Square Punch (or cut squares at 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" if you do not have a punch).
- 4" of 1/8" Yellow Ribbon
- 1/8" Hole Punch
- Brads (w/prongs)
- Glue (I use Fabri-Tac for this project - Not Shown)
- Double Stick Tape (Not Shown)
Apply Double Stick Tape Adhesive to the entire one side of the 3-1/2" x 1" Strip of Cardstock
Wrap Nugget with strip of cardstock, starting point being the underneath of the nugget.
Continue to wrap entire nugget until it is completely wrapped around.
Take the 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" Square and use 1/8" hole punch to punch a hole in the middle. Use the points of the square edges to eyeball where the middle is.
Should look like this after punching a hole in the middle.
Fold the ribbon in half to make a "V" so that it is overlapping at the fold.
Use the 1/8" hole puncher to punch a hole near the fold of the ribbon.
Push the brad through the holes of the ribbon.
Now push the brad through the 1-1/4" Square - this creates the cap.
On the reverse side of the square cap, apply glue (I used Fabri-Tac)
Attached the square cap to top of the nugget... forming the entire graduation cap.
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial!!! Thanks for stopping by!!! ALOHA!!!
