Mini Pizza Box

Hey everyone! Have you been checking in on our Blog Party today? I've been having such fun keeping up with the challenges and set reveals! Jen d. and Susan just posted their challenge to make a mini pizza box using a fabulous little tutorial Jen wrote on SCS.



I've been meaning to try making one of these for QUITE a while, and for some reason I kept putting it off, thinking it would be time consuming. WRONG! I had my box done in less than 20 minutes - and most of that was just picking out the paper I wanted to use! So easy, so cute and such a fabulous way to package a little gift. I know I'll be making many more of these this hoilday season! You go, Jen! ;)

I've been buying a bit more 12x12 scrapbook paper lately, because there are just some designs I LOVE that aren't available in a smaller size. So I've been challenging myself to incorporate the big patterns I wouldn't normally use for a card into my projects. Here I let the paper kind of steal the show - isn't it gorgeous. It's from the Winter's Wings collection by Webster's Pages. I matted with red, then cut other strips from the same page (a beautiful soft aqua color) and stamped the border from the new Thankful Hearts set (releasing tonight) in red to decorate the sides. The tag is cut with the Concentric Hearts die by Cuttlebug, and I added a from the heart sentiment from Thankful Hearts. A strong finish with that beautiful May Arts ribbon I'm addicted too, and a little Stardust Stickles and I was done!

What's In It?
Stamps: Thankful Hearts (Verve)
Paper: Winter's Wings (Webster's Pages), Real Red, white (SU!)
Ink: Crimson Red, Onxy Black (Versafine)
Accessories: Ribbon (May Arts), Concentric Hearts (Cuttlebug), Stickles
