Sending Smiles Across The Miles Mini Pizza Box

Among all the fun festivities over at The Cafter's Cafe this past weekend, was a Chat N Craft Saturday evening where everyone made mini pizza boxes together in real time! I have to say, this is the first pizza box I've ever made and it was so easy, thanks to Beate's tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers! Check it out - you can make two of these adorable mini pizza boxes out of one piece of 12 x 12 paper!


I made mine with white, bright yellow and orange cardstock, and made my own background paper with a randomly stamped flower colored with Copics. And of course, I used some more my new fav rolled flowers, and perched a colorful butterfly in front of the flowers! I love the way it turned out - what a great little gift box!

Recipe:

  • Gina K Designs Pure Luxury white cardstock; orange and textured yellow cardstock
  • Flower stamp from the GKD Natures Greeting stamp set
  • Ranger Rusty Hinge distress ink
  • Copics: YR04, YR09, YR14, YR15
  • Spellbinders scalloped ovals die
  • Sentiment from the GKD Special Delivery stamp set
  • Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Sizzix 3-D Flowers die
  • Dazzles butterfly; cream vellum; various colors of Memento markers
  • Orange sherbet flat-back pearls; orange/white polka dot ribbon; white pearl brad

Such a pretty little pizza box! I've never made one of these. It is so cheerful with the brights you've chosen, and that little 'stained glass' butterfly.
