Scor- It Project

I don't know about you- but I spent last week in a flurry of activity. I'm so looking forward to a little down time today, before it starts again for me this week. I'm taking the morning off to just chillax a little before I get started on a huge mound of laundry and finish wrapping gifts. We went to hubby's work Ice Cream with Santa party this weekend- the kids loved it- and I got some cute pics of course.
Today on 2sketches4you is our Scor-It project showcase. I made a nugget box, you know, those delectable little morsels of Hershey's chocolates that can be decorated up and given as a sweet gift. I made this to send to the HR lady at Dh's work in thanks for her extra efforts at the Ice Cream party, thought it would be a nice little giftie.
The papers are Bobunny Unforgettable, which just is such a beautiful line. I cut the flowers from the paper, then added a Hambly Print clear label as a tag, some Making Memories little stickers, some buttons and twine, and a gingerbread girl from a kit I've been making with slick paints. She can be hung on a tree when she's taken off the package- an extra little present. The ribbons are all bobunny.
To make the box, get out your papers, cutter and Scor-It.
My nugget box was 3x4 inches, and held 3 layers of 9 nuggets- which is 27 nuggets. I cut the paper for the bottom of the box at 7x8 inches. I scored the box all the way on each side at 2 inches, which was nice to use the little stopper that the kit came with. Place your paper right side down for scoring.
Then I cut up the short sides on the score marks to the point they intersected the other lines. And fold against the score lines. The two little flaps will be your glue points for the box.
Here is the box partially put together.
Fill it with mounds of deliciousness.... I got a mixed bag, the chocolate with almonds and toffee is my favorite.
Next cut your top size to 5 1/8 and 6 1/8 inches. You will score the box at 1 inch on all sides.
Again, cut the box lid at the short sides to make the glue flaps. And finish the lid as you did the box.
You can use a large circle punch to punch out the half circles in the short sides of the lid. and then just decorate it as you like.

Thanks for dropping by today! have a wonderful monday!

Thanks for a great tutorial Kristen! Loved how your box turned out (so cute), it inspired me to have a go at making a gift box myself! Your instructions were so easy to follow, I had no problems (only with my maths, trying to work out measurements for a different size!). Got there in the end though!
