Tutorial for Pencil Box Inserts

Sue asked for the dimensions for the inserts for the pencil boxes.  Sorry it took me so long!

The inserts are made using two pieces of cardstock. All measurements are done in inches. 

The part that holds the little pencils is 5 1/4 x 4 3/4.  Score along the 4 3/4 side at 1 1/4, 2, 2 3/4. Use a corner rounder on the edges so they fit in the nugget tin.

The other insert that holds all of the little supplies is cut 2 x 8 1/4.  Score at 1 3/4, 2 1/2, 3 1/4, 5 ,5 3/4, 6 1/2 .  Use a corner rounder on the top corners.

Just fold and insert into the nugget tin.  I used adhesive on the valley folds to hold them together and then added a little adhesive into the nugget box to hold the inserts in the box. 

Thanks for stopping by,
