Hi- I must be doing something wrong. I click on the file and it shows it is downloading from the site. Then it says the d/l is done but there is nothing on the page.

Default thanks Chris

Thankyou Chris, I looked at all the different designs for patterns and finally the last one I look at has them. You are sooooo awesome. Thanks for doing this. I just made the 3 piece last night for a sample and will be making it with my stamp club tonight. Now I'll have to try some of the others. thanks again, Pam

I was so excited about all these nugget box templates, but I'm really having a doozy of a time with the outer piece. I've tried the 3 nugget box and the 4 nugget box and the outer piece is just coming out all wrong. Can anyone help?

The biggest trick is that the smaller flap goes on the outside, not the inside. That's because one of the bigger surfaces (the top and the bottom of the outer piece) is very slightly wider than the other. If you put the smaller flap to the inside, you'll end up with a lopsided shape.

Help!

Hi Chris.

First I wanted to thank you for sharing all your hard work. I am trying to make a box of happy birthday (16) and the box is bigger than the slide. Am I missing something? I checked back on this site to see if the sizes were exactly the same and they are. I'm using the 16 piece template you provided. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks,
Deb

Red face Got it!

Hello Chris.

I went back to the original template and took apart my box. Turns out I must have not measured correctly. I did it again and it turned out perfectly. Again, thank you so much! I think these will be a big hit with everyone!

Default nugget boxes templates

I have a question. If I wanted to make the smaller boxes like that hold 4, 6, or 8 etc. where do I find those templates or how do I adjust these?

Kittenkaboodle

If you have them, could you email them to meyerk@usfamily.net?

TIA,
Karen

In the replies to this topic, you'll find over 20 different PDF files, each to make a different size of nugget box. Each of the files has a name similar to this: nugget_box_8_long.pdf - this tells you how many nugget candies it holds (8 in this case). If the name includes 'long' or 'short', it just means that there is more than one shape of box that holds that number of nuggets. For example, 8 nuggets could be either one row of eight (long), or two rows of four (short).

If you click on one of the PDF files and get a blank screen, you probably need to upgrade your Adobe reader software. You can get the free upgrade at www.adobe.com - version 7.0 is the minimum that you should get.
Thank you for doing all the "pain in the neck part" Why did you skip 9?

Not quite sure I understand the question. I originally did only boxes with eight or less nuggets per row, because they can be made from 8.5 by 11 cardstock. I later added patterns for the nine per row patterns (1x9, 2x9, and 3x9), and they are found in this topic as well. To make these, you have to use 12x12 for one or both pieces of the box.

Does that help?

((((((((((((((((Chris)))))))))))))))))))) Not only did you do all the hard work.... but this thread encouraged me to try this. I always think these things are going to take a degree in Rocket Science. Due to an injury I have something wrong with how I see things. I literally can't see straight lol I have a very difficult time measuring, and I can't cut or draw straight and even I did this!! Ok...the top slidey piece came out all caddywhompus the first time, but the 2nd time it worked!! The bottom piece worked the first time. You are amazing girly. I did the one for 18 pcs. Uhmmm....as I was doing this I thought....wow this would make a great box holder to put cards in to give someone. But it's just the tiniest bit not wide enough. (wide if you orient the card vertically, it would be the height if you're looking at it like a nugget box). Since it would take a rocket science degree for me to do the math, and since I'm the type that if you give me an inch I take a mile.....do you do requests??? lol Would it be difficult for you to do a template that would fit a standard 5.5 x 4.25 card and envies with a little wiggle room? I don't do math....if I try to add 2+2 I usually get 22 lol If it would be too much of a hassle particularly during this busy time of year, don't worry about it, but ya can't blame a gal for trying.

You can print them on cardstock if you like, but you'll waste quite a bit if you do. I've made them to print right in the middle of the page. You'd be better off cutting out the rectangle required from the side of the sheet and then scoring according to the measurements given.

In the case of the 'nine in a row' boxes, one or both pieces needs to be made from 12x12 paper, so the template is shown shrunk down to fit on 8.5x11 paper so that you can print it. These cannot be made by printing directly on your cardstock. The patterns that are not to scale are clearly marked.

I just clicked on resources to find out how to make the boxes for my son's bus drivers and was amazed to find the link to all of these different sizes. You are an amazingly generous person, chris. Not only did you make them all, but you are taking the time to answer people's questions. Thanks so much!

You are sooooo awesome for taking the time to do this for us. Just the other day my friend was asking if I could try to come up with an 18 nugget box for teacher gifts that spelled out Merry Christmas. I told her I would try. You just made it awhole lot easier. Thank you sooooo much!!!
