Pamper Me Pink Nugget Box for Stamp Camp

Another project for the "Pamper Me Pink" Stamp Camp was the Nugget Box.

These boxes are very simple to make. I found the patterns for them on the Splitcoast website. Someone spent a lot of time and posted several of them that hold different amounts of candy. I have not gotten beyond the box that holds three!

For this project we used Pretty in Pink, Whisper White and Bravo Burgundy card stock from Stampin' Up! We also use the two oval punches, white organza ribbon, Bravo Burgundy ink pad, the white gel pen, French Flair background stamp, Fancy Flexible Phrases, three Hershey Nuggets and white address labels. These were regular size address labels, not return address labels.

The Pretty in Pink card stock was cut, scored and then stamped. After stamping with the Bravo Burgundy ink pad, you take the white gel pen and highlight a few of the flares coming from around the birds. When stamping the labels, leave them on the sheet. Make sure you get one or two of the birds on the labels. They add a nice touch to your nuggets. Remove the label and wrap it around the nugget. Assemble the box as shown in the instructions. The instructions I used for this one were done by Beth Warner (always give credit where credit is due) and I did get that pattern directly from the Splitcoast website. Email me if you have any problems getting it. It is in PDF format. Once your box is assembled add your nuggets. There really is no need to glue the box shut. Use your bone folder to make sharp creases and it will stay together. Slid the top onto the box and tie the ribbon around it. Stamp your wording on your card stock first then turn your smaller oval punch upside down and center the words before you punch. Perfectly centered every time!! Then punch out the Bravo Burgundy card stock with the larger punch. Layer them and attach them to the top of the nugget box! Simple as that! These are not only great for Valentine's Day but they are great as bridal shower favors (using the colors the bride has chosen), for Mother's Day, great for teacher's gifts and a fabulous little thank you gift! I'm sure you can think of a lot more things to do with these! I'd love to hear your ideas! Better yet, show them to me!!

Wow Wanda, this is really nice. You did a great job. I can't think of anyone that wouldn't love to get this as a gift.
