This is a matchbox or "nugget" box. The dimensions are as follows:
Lid: 4" x 5" scored at 3/4", 2 1/4", 3" and 4 1/2" (The box is 4" long, so be sure to score your lines on the short side.
Bottom: 2 15/16" x 5 7/16" and it is scored at 3/4" on all four sides. Use the bone folder to crease your scored lines. With the paper snips on each end of the box, cut just up to the scored lines to create flaps. Fold flaps inside with and glue with Crystal Effects.
First I stamped the tulips in Basic Black. I colored them in with the markers. Then I used the Versamarker over the parts I wanted to emboss with the Iridescent Ice EP. Crease scored lines with bone folder and glue with Crystal Effects.
I also stamped the sides with Marvelous Magenta. Stamp 4 Avery labels and wrap around Hershey nuggets to put inside the box. Wrap the organdy ribbon on the outside.

Great nugget box! I have to share a funny story. My kids were playing basketball with a neighbor in our driveway several weeks ago when they accidentally squished a worm. They wanted to bury it and asked if I had a box to put it in. I had just learned how to make one of these nugget boxes, and said, "ah, ha ... I have the perfect box ... give me a few minutes to make it." They loved it! They decorated it with crosses and flowers, and put the worm's name (Wormy) on it. The neighbor went home and got his trumpet and played Taps while my oldest son dug a grave and buried the box. They then picked dandelions and placed them on top of the grave. I never thought a nugget box would come in so handy!!!
