Santa Theme Nugget Box

Hello all!!! This post is usually the Wednesday Sketch but I have not even looked at it yet today. It is something I'll be working on later tonight. I am still playing around with the Santa Theme stuff. Once I'm done with it you'll have a number of items to select from and gather together to create your own Stamp Camp!!!

Tonight I'm posting the nugget box. I got the patters on SplitCoastStampers. I downloaded them to my computer so I do not have a link to them. I download EVERYTHING I see that I think I might use someday!!! My computer desktop is as messy as my worktable!!! LOL Anyway to get the patterns, just click on "Forums" at the top of the screen. Then scroll down to "downloads" and you can do a search in there for nugget boxes. Someone put a bunch of them on there in various sizes. Of course I copied them all. You never know when you need one that holds more than three!!! This one holds six.
I ran out of the Hodge Podge Hardware buckles by Stampin' Up! so I had to use punched ones (from the die cut and the Sizzix). It gets the idea across anyway. Though I think if I were using these for Stamp Camp I'd probably use something else for the buckles. Cut a square piece of the brushed gold card stock and punch a square "dot" and glue them in place. But I probably would use the hardware buckle on the front of the box. But then again you could probably sell more punches than hardware kits. You know what your customers purchasing limits are so go with your gut feeling. Better yet, demo them both ways!!!

For the candies I used Nestle Treasures and I covered them with a white address label. SO quick and simple. I cut the black strips to fit inside the buckle and wrapped them around the candies and glued them in place. This was a very fun and fairly quick project. I think a number of my stampers will be making these!!! Wouldn't these be cute on the desks of your coworkers??? Or that little extra something under the tree from Santa??? Something for the mail carrier or your next door neighbor???

Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to enter in the Anniversary Blog Candy!
