Giant Nugget Boxes

Did you think I ran away this week? Well...I thought seriously about it!
Man, what a week it's been.
I held my first Teacher Appreciation Luncheon at Nicholas school and all went well. That's a lot to fall one a persons shoulders if it fails :) The kids have been out of school for Parent Teacher Conferences, I made 9 cake mixes and frosting gift sets and forgot to take a single picture of them. I have to make 6 more so I'll remember this time, and I won't bore you with all the rest of the week.
The good news is, I'm doing a Holiday Bazaar on the 21st of November and I thought I would get started with a few things! I'm not going to make too many things because I'm using this mostly as a business day...but you gotta have some cute stuff to show, right?
How about Giant Nugget Boxes??

These hold four 3x3 Note Cards & Envelopes with 3 wrapped Hershey Nuggets down the middle. You could arrange the compartments anyway you want and fill them with all kinds of things.
Delightful Decorations and Christmas Cocoa DSP

Animal Stories and Tall Tales DSP


Christmas Punch and Merry Moments DSP

Would you like to make one? Here's how I did it!
Cut cardstock to 5-1/4" x 10-1/2". Score at 1/2" and 1" on all 4 sides. Cut out the corners as shown and fold into a box shape as shown below.

Divider insert
Cut cardstock 3" x 10-1/4". Score at 3-1/4", 3-3/4", 4-1/4", 5-3/4", 6-1/4", 6-3/4. Fold with peak and valley style as shown above. Adhesive the peaks so they stay up. You can put adhesive under the divider if you want but it isn't necessary and no, it does not fit tight, it just sits in the box.

Transparency Sheet Slider
Cut transparency paper to 8-1/2 x 8-3/8.
The scoring measurements are a little odd but keep in mind the box is 1/2" tall by 3-1/4" wide so these measurements are just a fraction over those sizes.
Score at 1/2", 3-13/16, 4-3/8", 7-11/16".
It's kind of hard to fold this paper unless you score it well. Unfortunately there is a fine line between scoring it perfectly and scoring through it! :) Add Sticky Strip to one end and attach to the other.
Looks like this now.
Slide the box inside and you've got it!
The silver elastic cord is about 18" long. Tie it in a knot, slip it around the box and tie a ribbon onto the cording.
Now...how much should I sell these for? That is the hard part for me!

  2. How much should you sell these for? I am thinking a gazillion dollars or so. They are wonderful. I have made something like it but would never have thought to do it for chocolate and for cards. I think I know what my aunt is getting for Christmas.

  12. These are wonderful gifts little gifts Becky. Pricing our work is difficult, between $10 to $20? Let's face it we never make enough to pay for our time and effort.

  13. Oh, how special these are. What a great hostess gift over the holidays. I think we all would love to know what you price them at. I do a little fair at my church, only started making stuff due to illness and the hardest part is the pricing. Any help and info is appreciated. Best of luck!
    Stay well,

  14. wow what a great gift idea. Thanks for sharing with us. as for the pricing I usally give myself an hourly rate and then add cost for materials. People say I charge too little for my creations but Im having so much fun it doesnt feel like work. Again thanks for sharing.

  15. What a great project! Thanks for sharing with us. I know it's hard to put a price on stuff like that. I would estimate that 15$ should be about the price I would like to get for a project like that if I made one... But people that does not make those does not get the work put on it... so it may not sell at that price... sometime I put the price I want for and if it does not sell I use it as Christmas gift!!

  21. Thank you for sharing the instructions on this project. I now know what to give several friends for Christmas! As far a pricing, I would think the $10-$15 range. It really depends on the part of the country (and economy) in the area you are in.

  34. Alright - I am new to this box making thing. LOVE LOVE LOVE the concept - they are adorable. BUT, I must not be doing something right on the transparency slide cover. I cut my transparency to the dimensions, but there is no way it is going to fit. Anyone else have this problem?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yes, there was an error and I have now corrected the measurments for the transparnecy sheet. Sorry about that!

  49. Love this project. Thank you for once again sharing one of your great creations! I've made one so far and will make more to sell at my granddaughter's pre-school fund raiser in CA. What price did you finally decide on? I'm thinking $15 would be fair.
