Giant Nugget Boxes

This beautiful card and candy box idea is from These boxes are adorable.

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.

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.
