These nugget boxes were made with some of my very favourite paper. I'm very judicious with my favourite papers and ribbons and have to remind myself to use it... I've only made 3 things with this paper so far this year, now that's not good...
I've been loving the way the striped in colour ribbon feels and what pretty bows you can tie with it! Three of us got together and shared so we each have several meters of each colour, but some for some colours I think I'm going to need more:) (OK, I know, I've got a thing for ribbon;)

Here I was getting to the end of my Christmas cards for this year and it occured to me that I hadn't used my 'Merry Christmas' ribbon - you can't have Christmas without 'Merry Christmas' ribbon?!! So cards and nugget boxes now abound with this most festive of ribbons:)

I told you I made all kinds of nugget boxes on the weekend:) Here's a link to Splitcoast's tutorial if anyone's feeling inspired to make a few of their own:)
...the tutorial is for a 3 nugget box and I've been making 5 nugget boxes with Nicole's instructions. The base for the box measures 7 x 3.5 and the wrap for the box measures 5 x 5 and the wraps for the nuggets measure 3 x 1.
If you do make some, let me know so I can some and see:)

So today I made 14 (I think it's 14, could be more...) nugget boxes... A few of them are for some friends at work. They're all different, and I'll post some more of them another day, but I thought I'd post these today since they use the same paper as today's card did:)

(...sigh...) It's Thursday and ever since this week's Cinema Saturday was revealed I've been wanting to participate, but things have been so hectic this week and the only creating I've had time for is to work on some of my Christmas presents and cards that HAVE to go out soon.
This week's theme was 'The Sound of Music'. I love that movie!! And I loosely based my idea for how to do these two projects on my thoughts of the movie. First of all, the patterns and paper were kind of inspired by my thoughts of Austria and the mountains - they have a sort of Nordic feel, and then the snowflakes in the paper and clear embellished on the backgrounds of the pieces where the words are came from my favourite song from the movie...when she says, "snowflakes that fall on my nose and eyelashes...these are a few of my favourite things..." I know the projects don't closely resemble any scenes from the movie, but sometimes it works that way.
Thanks to Sankari and Brooke for the inspiration and for reminding me of a such a warm movie this week!

I haven't been able to play along with Kristina's colour inspiration for a few weeks, so this morning as I was making Christmas balls for my Secret Santa I took my inspiration colour-wise from Kristina!
Boy the days are getting shorter?! These pictures were taken in the window at 9:30 a.m. and it's still not light enough to get a really good picture!! Oh well, Christmas is coming:)
I made this little nugget box to go with the card I made earlier this week for Cinema Saturday (Miracle on 34th Street). Only I had a problem... I thought I bought Hershey nuggets, but they were Hershey miniatures and they have different dimensions so I remade my box a couple of times and it's still not perfect. If anyone has the dimensions for making these with miniatures, please let me know 'cause I have 2 bags of Hershey's miniatures to use up! :)
