Step By Step Tutorial of Graduation Nugget Cap Favors

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.


Project Complete!!!
