Mini Pizza Box

Here's a fun little project! A mini pizza box, have you ever made one? I've seen them but never took the time to make one, until today....Christine did a fabulous tutorial over on the Follow Your Heart blog. I just took some scrap paper and followed along! Easy peasy and made a box...then I did it "for real" and made this little set! I stuck with all Stampin' Up for this one. I started by stamping the cherries with this SU tart & tangy stamp set but it looked too busy so I went with the strawberry....now I'm hungry for some sweet strawberries!! I just flipped the punched circle over and stamped on the other side, that's way paper has two sides, right? The ribbon was actually two pieces of scrap snipped from another bow. It wasn't long enough so I took the one pc and wrapped it around and the other pc I tied around the first to make a little knot. The little card & red layers are made from the left over box cardstock...quite the "GREEN" card, using up all the scraps! I'll stamp some images and use this set for a little birthday gift.

I used The Corrosive Challenge sketch, Stamp With Us' theme of birthday, A Spoonful of Sugar's request for punches or dies and Simon Says-Recycle! Well, that's it for this post, I really hope you try the mini pizza box. It will make you feel empowered to have done something new!

Have a blessed day!
