Sweets for a Sweet...

Good Morning!  I hope your week is going well for you.  I have such a sweet gift idea to share with you.  Now I know that nugget boxes are not new to anyone, but this one is new to me.  I found a great tutorial here on YouTube.  This gal is so much fun to watch!

So here's my version of the nugget box that is on Tresa Black's video....


So here's the box and I am featuring a new set that was just released in the Sweet n Sassy Stamps store. It's called Somebuggy Loves You and it's absolutely adorable!  So the box is basically a very long matchbox.  Pull out the center and it reveals another message....


The box is designed for 7 nuggets - so you can customize this for any 7 letter message.  I thought this would be cute for kids since they seem to talk in a text message language all the time.

Supplies:
Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Chocolate Chip
Paper:  Chocolat (SEI)
Stamps/Ink:  Somebuggy Loves You (SNSS), Alpha set (Hero Arts), Rich Cocoa (Memento)
Copics:  E34, E37, RV02, RV10
Tools:  Circle cutter (CM), Scallop circle nesties
Embellishments:  Pink satin ribbon (Offray)

Now, in case you haven't heard about the fabulous sale going on at SNSS, you can pick a free stamp set of your choice (in the specific collection shown) with a $25 purchase!  Also, Korin has introduced colored digis!!  How cool is this!?  Talk about an easy solution when you're short on time - these are great for that quick card.  Be sure to head on over to store to see the January release and the new colored digis.

Thank you for stopping by.
