A Scor-Pal & DCWV Nugget Box

Hello!  I hope you enjoyed the Scor-Pal and DCWV week long feature! Today, I can share my main project that I made.  For a recap of the other projects, check out my yesterday's post. If you haven't seen what the rest of the team has made, you will definitely want to check it all out on the Scor-Pal blog.  Don't forget about the ladies on the DCWV blog who have been working hard with their Scor-Pal products.  Be sure to see what they cooked up!!

I offer you a sweet little treat in the form of a nugget box.

You will want to start with a piece of patterned paper or card stock that is 3 5/8" wide by 6 1/4" long.  Place it on your Scor-Buddy and score on the right hand side of your paper at 5 1/8" and 5 3/4".  Turn your paper 180 degrees and score again at 5 1/8" and 5 3/4".  (See Diana's video for an easy way to achieve those eighths). 

Turn you paper 90 degrees and score on the right hand side of you paper at 2 1/2" and 3 1/8".  Turn your paper 180 degrees and score again at 2 1/2" and 3 1/8". 

Trim out the corner pieces shown above.

Create some tabs by trimming as indicated above on the red lines. 

Ah, now we see some of the fabulous DCWV Autumn Melody patterned paper.  In this step, you want to crease all of your score lines you have made. 

Place some Scor-Tape on the panels adjacent to each side of the bottom of the box. 

Peel the backing of your Scor-Tape on the shorter sides first and adhere it down. 

Peel the backing of your Scor-Tape on longer sides and adhere the tabs from the shorter sides. 

Adhere the longer sides to the inside, finishing the bottom of you box. 

Start on the cover of your box now with a piece of acetate ( I used a piece of plastic report cover) measuring 4 5/8" by 4/16". The brown card stock behind the acetate is only for the purposes of picture taking.

Score at 3/8", 1 7/8", 2 1/2" and 4". 

Crease each score line and apply Scor-Tape to the 3/8" section. 
Peel the backing of your Scor-Tape and adhere the cover together.  Slide it over your box. 

Now  for our wrapped nuggets, you will need some Hershey nuggets and a 1" by 2 3/4" piece of patterned paper.  Again, we have some luscious DCWV patterned paper from the Autumn Melody Stack covering these nuggets.

Place some Scor-Tape on the back of the nugget and some Scor-Tape on one end of the patterned paper. 
Peel the backing off your Scor-Tape and wrap up your nugget.  The nugget box I made today fits 4 nuggets, so you will want to repeat this step three more times. 

Finally, slide back your cover and place the wrapped nuggets in your box.  Decorate as desired.
