Very non-holiday birthday gift
Here's a nugget box and card that I made tonight for a sweet friend at my girls' school. She's the library aide, and we became friends when I volunteered at the school bookfair. She has two girls the same age as my girls, and we were finishing each other's sentences from the moment we met. We joke that we were separated at birth and call each other "sister", though we could not look more different. We get some fun looks from people who don't know why we think we're sisters.
This is the first time I've cut into the Cutie Pie designer paper. Isn't it cute? It's so easy to make a quick happy card with it! If you'd like lots of patterns for nugget boxes, check out my thread on Splitcoaststampers. There are tons of sizes to choose from, holding from two to thirty nuggets. This box holds sixteen, which is perfect for spelling "Happy Birthday" on the labels.
To answer Robyn's question - the labels are stamped with Bud Basics. I used the big flower outline (in bashful blue, purely pomegranate and so saffron) and the leaf outline (in celery). And of course, the letters are the Whimsical Alpha.
