Nugget Box Challenge

With Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas all sneaking up on us, Pam and I tried to figure out what to challenge you with that could be used for all three of these occasions. We also love chocolate and needed to put that into the challenge as well.

So, this week's challenge is Nugget Boxes. We found a great link on SCS posted by Chris Simon and were thrilled as she's given various shapes and sizes so you all can decide which size you'd like to do!

Nugget Boxes of Many Sizes

For my sample, I went with the 4 x 2 size (meaning you can get 2 rows of 4 nuggets) and used my Penguin Pants stamp sets Halloween Hang Ups and Spooky Spooks to make a great Halloween candy treat perfect for a neighbor, babysitter or teacher.

I usually don't like the look of "wacky" ribbon but for Halloween, I think its okay. I used the "frayed ribbon" technique on some black grosgrain. I used some great Halloween designer paper from Stampin' Up! and covered the nuggets inside with paper to match.

Unfortunately Pam has had to call in sick this week. As soon as she is feeling better she will post her sample.

I'm with Mel, where can I find the Nuggets?!! ;)

I really like what you did with the ribbon. Did you just pull it apart at the ends?
