Nugget Boxes with Acetate Covers

 

Boxes2

I designed a couple of cute boxes today…hope you like 'em! I couldn't help but notice that lots of the designer paper is on the retired accessories list, which is good and bad…bad 'cuz I have lots of it I need to use up in the next two weeks, and good 'cuz I love new stuff so that means lots of yummy new papers in the catalog coming out the 19th!

I've been making lots of cards over the last couple of days, so I wanted to get back to my favorite…3d items, plus use up some designer paper too…so I thought "how about a cute little box I could make for all sorts of little occasions…maybe for my son's  classmates for valentine's day too! You know by this time in the catalog I have lots of smaller pieces left, not enough for a class, not enough for a bunch of cards, just extra pieces. This little project will be perfect to use up all those scraps, and I'm going to show you just how I made it!

First, you'll need 4 Hershey's Nuggets candies, and to cover them, you'll need 4 strips of designer paper each 1 x 3". Just tape them to the back of the chocolate and you're good to go.

Now for the box bottom, cut a piece of card stock (or designer paper like I used for the Candy Lane paper one), to 3-1/4 x 3-7/8". You want to have your sides about 5/8" high, so you'll score in at 5/8" in on each side.  Then cut up to the score lines as shown, stick on your sticky strip and assemble.

Now you will make your cover out of acetate. I'm using the same stuff I used to make the pillow box and scallop envelope box, they're called Impact Clear Gloss Binding Covers, and they cost $15.99 for a box of 20.  You'll cut your acetate to 3-1/8 x 3-3/4", and I scored in at 1/2" on each side.

I put the cover on top of the box for you to see it more clearly.

Then just put on the cover and decorate! Simple as that…although for the "thank you" on the Georgia Peach dsp box I would break out the White StazOn, I would definitely NOT recommend using white craft ink and trying to heat emboss it with a gentle touch…I don't think there is an amount of gentle that would make this ok haha!!

Thanks for stopping by!
