Mini Pizza Boxes – Where’s The Pizza?

Gold! These Mini Pizza Boxes are GOLD! Can anything call out “Gift Box” more than gold? Oh, so they are really a little small for a pizza but think of all the other things you could put in these, including a gift card! I made some recently as door prizes for my monthly classes and a bunch for an upcoming Craft Fair.

Design Notes for Mini Pizza Boxes:

Well, it’s all pretty simple. I used the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set to stamp the sentiments. The doillie, bell, and sentiment are all attached to the terrific Wrapped in Plaid Designer Paper. I added that to the Cherry Cobbler Card Stock band and called it done!

The box is perfect for a small gift, jewelry or a key chain. It’s also perfect for a gift card. Because of that, I added at tag to the back of each box.

Perfect Parcels and Petals – Part 2

You may recall a week or so ago, I posted a card made with the Parcels and Petals stamp set. (Check it out here.) I promised you that I would show you something that showed the Parcel part of the set. The Perfect Parcels dies make really perfect parcels!

I made these adorable boxes as door prizes for my classes this month. Each box is filled with Hershey Miniatures, individually wrapped!

 

 

Design Notes for Perfect Parcels Boxes:

These boxes were so much fun to make. The dies, of course, made it easy. Remember, whenever you are making a box or container, use Tear & Tape to be sure it will stay together. Here’s the box, before belly band.

The belly band was a strip of the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper and some Scalloped Linen Ribbon topped with a sentiment and background piece. The sentiment and background piece were also cut from dies in the Perfect Parcels Dies set. I finished it all off with one of the Bird Ballad Trinkets.

Oh, are you wondering what I put inside? There are so many choices. But, I went with my fallback, Hershey Nuggets. I wrapped each one with some Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Nine Nuggets fit comfortably in each box. I probably could have fit in a few more!

Gift Bags With A Little Smile

Are you thinking that the gift bag has a little smile? Sorry to disappoint. I decorated some gift bags with materials left over from this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit, A Little Smile.

Paper Pumpkin, A Little Smile, Gift Bags, Gift Tags, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

Here’s a peek at this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit.

It was so much fun to put this kit together. And, as usual, I had some great things left over!

Design Notes for A Little Smile Gift Bags:

The most fun part of the bag was creating the sand for the beach chair. I used some Shimmery Embossing Paste. I mixed some of the paste with of few drops of Crumb Cake ink on a Silicon Mat. Voila! Sand! The cute palm tree, and the shells were from the Paper Pumpkin kit.

On the tags, I used just a scrap of paper from the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper. Again, I used some left over shells and linen thread.

As much as I enjoyed making the darling cards from the Paper Pumpkin kit, I love challenging myself to make something creative with the bits that are left over!

Good Morning Magnolia Gift Box

Each month I hold card classes in my home. We have lots of fun. I always have a door prize, usually something I’ve made. This month I am offering a Mini Pizza Box. The box is  adorned with a flower made with the Good Morning Magnolia Bundle.

Inside the box? Candy of course! But you could use these boxes for so many things: candy, jewelry, a gift card.

 

Design Notes for Good Morning Magnolia Box:

I wish that I could say that I figured out how to make the flower all by myself. But it wasn’t that hard! I’ve added a video that Stampin’ Up made showing exactly how to make the flowers.

Well, I did not make the box. It’s one of the really cute Mini Pizza boxes that you can order. I did add a strip of Petal Pink card stock around the box. Then, I adhered the flower with some Tear & Tape and a bit of the Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon. Easy, right?

Note Card Box with All Things Thanks

I have an event coming up and have been thinking about a little hostess gift. The other morning I saw a video from Ronda Wade where she created a darling note card box from one sheet of card stock. Love at first sight! And an answer to my query.

Isn’t this so cute?

 

Design Notes for Note Card Box:

First things first. You have to have a Stampin’ Trimmer or Simply Scored Board to make this box. There is a fair amount of scoring for this. Here are my scoring/cutting samples.

Note Card Box, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

Note Card Box, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com(Sorry, not sure why I turned the paper after I added the cutting lines.)

I added some Tear & Tape as indicated.

Note Card Box, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

Just fold the sides over, and then adhere with the Tear & Tape. I added Designer Paper before I assembled but it really doesn’t matter. It’s easy to add after you assemble the box.

Note Card Box, All things Thanks stamp set, heat embossing, Floral Romance Designer Series Paper, Tea Room Ribbon Combo, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

The decorative part was fun. You know how I love to heat emboss and used this as an opportunity to dig out some copper accents. The ribbon is from the Tea Room suite and the edge of copper was just too perfect. One option for the box is to wrap the ribbon around and then untie it to open it. I did tie the ribbon around but put a glue dot under the bow. Then all the recipient has to do is pull the ribbon off from the back, without untieing.

You can see the ribbon here.
