Merry Kiss-Moose!

Happy Friday! Hope you're staying warm! This is the second week of card/gift ideas for the KLSNS blog! This week I did a nugget box.

There is a super tutorial on SCS for nugget boxes. Chris sat down and figured all the dimensions for any size box from 1x2 nuggets to 3x10 nuggets. You simply cut a square/rectangle of paper from designer paper, score/cut, and fold! I always use a double sided paper because you will see inside the box.

I have a Scor-Pal which I use on every card I make. But if you have one, you know that you have to do "higher math" to figure where to mark on non-traditional folds. The easiest way I've found around that is to draw pencil lines on the "fold" marks and then crease.

Do it on the inside of the box and the folded edges will hide the marks. The directions also give "lid" informations. I use acetate to make the lid so you can see the decorated candies inside the box.

I cut 1" x 3 1/4" strips of computer paper out. But you can also use mailing labels, designer paper, etc. Here I used my beloved Martha Stewart holly punch and some rhinestones to decorate.

The matching card uses this weeks SCS Sketch (SC258). Since the paper was two sided it seemed perfect to use the leftovers for the card. The High Hopes HOPEFUL MOOSE is hoping you give him a "kiss" (or nugget in this case)! Colored with Copics. Highlighted with my souffle pen (white dots on his scarf). Hope you have a Merry Kiss-Moose!
