Last night I did a little prep work for my class tonight.
I'm doing a Simple Valentine's class at the scrapbooking store. This class consists of 2 cards, a vellum sour cream twist treat container and a Hershey's nugget matchstick box.
I'm making a 3 nugget box for the class tonight but I decided to make more nugget boxes in different sizes so that the class could see how versatile these little boxes are. I made a 2x5 and a 2x8 - the 2x5 is perfect for THANK YOU and the 2x8 is great for HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Just use the AVERY or generic brand labels to print out your message and stamp images lightly on the rest of the label to add some colour.
Once you get past the cutting, the scoring and the folding these little suckers come together pretty fast! I'm getting addicted to them....
I used Basic Grey double sided paper for these. If you're making small boxes it's ok to use a lighter weight cardstock but if you're making the large ones then you need something sturdier like Stampin' Up! or Bazzills cardstock. I haven't added ribbon or finished decorating the 2 bigger ones yet but I'll do that later this morning.
I found the template for these on the internet.

I'm sure that once you've tried these you'll be hooked too!
