{TLC189 Pizza Anyone?}

You don't have to call Pizza Hut to get one of these cute little pizza boxes - all you need is some cardstock, adhesive and some imagination. Today on Splitcoast Stampers' Technique Lover's Challenge, I challenged everyone to give these cute little boxes a try. What fun containers they make for a homemade goodies, or even packaging for a set of gift cards.




I used Kim Hughes' Baked with Love set to create a container for a yummy muffin top. This is such a fun set for sending a little yummy love or perhaps decorating recipe cards. The possibilities are as delicious.

I found the template for this little box on the Score Pal project page. You can find this template HERE. I hope that you will give one of these little boxes for yourself. Betcha can't make just one. (lame reference to an old potato chip commercial).

I didn't have any eyelets in the color I wanted, so I made four faux eyelets with some cardstock and Glossy Accents. I first used my 1/8" circle punch to punch 4 holes about 1" apart, then taking my 1/4" circle punch, I centered it over the 1/8" hole and punched again. Then using some repositionable tape, I fixed them in place so they wouldn't move around. Next I applied a layer of Glossy Accents on the little "donuts" I'd created and then let dry. When completely finished they look so very much like real eyelets, that you need to take a second look to see that they are paper and not metal.

Although the original template didn't call for a finger grip slot, but I thought it would be easier to open if it had one, so using a small circle punch, I created one, which you can see if you click on the first picture and look along the front bottom of the box.

Until next time, have a fabulous day!

Stuff I Used: Stamps: Baked with Love (Kim Hughes) Papers: Sahara Sand Textured and regular cardstock, Basic Black, Checked Patterned Paper (Creative Memories); Inks: Brilliance Black; Other Stuff: Copic Markers, Small Scalloped Square Nestabilities, Photo Corner Punch, 1/8 & 1/4" Circle Punch, Glossy Accents (Ranger), Gingham Ribbon (SU!) Tacky Tape, Martha Stewart Border Punch.

Fantabulous box Lynn - I'm in box making mood - must go hunt it down. Great colour scheme, and the eyelets are genius.

Very cute, I have been making these too! If you have 12x12 paper you can make one big enough to hold the 4.25 x 5.5 notecards. I use my MM half moon punch to make little slots to tuck the box closed, works like a charm.
