Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | 12 Weeks of Halloween – Week 8
Today’s project was inspired by the fun Mini Pizza Box samples on page 52 of the Holiday Catalogue. As soon as I saw them I knew I wanted to C.A.S.E. them, but wanted to see them on a coloured box.
This is where I have to admit that I’m a bit lazy sometimes and so, while I love the Mini Pizza Boxes, I just didn’t want to take the effort to colour them – it’s really not difficult, I’m just lazy 😉
So I decided to make my own out of cardstock and while they don’t have some of the features that make the Mini Pizza Boxes that little bit more special, they are coloured and I have to admit I’d be more inclined to give these if I knew they were going to be tossed soon afterwards – it’s true, there are non-crafty people who will throw out your handmade packaging!!
These boxes are the same dimensions as the Mini Pizza Boxes (3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ x 1″) and are decorated using the same piece of Spooky Night DSP and owl from the Spooky Cat stamp set as the samples in the catalogue.
I added a fussy cut rat for the owls treat, some Black Rhinestone Jewel eyes and an Enamel Shape to dress up their DSP hats.
The belly band was made out of cardstock 1-1/2″ x 9-3/4″ and I added some Black Shimmer Ribbon in the middle for a little sparkle – I love this ribbon 🙂
The owl squares were cut to 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ and layered onto two contrasting pieces of cardstock that were die cut with the Layering Squares Framelits. This layer was popped up with dimensionals on the belly band for some extra texture.
Pizza style boxes are very easy to make and I have a simple template with the dimensions and score lines that I used to make this size box. To assemble, once your piece of cardstock looks like the picture, add adhesive to the tabs and adhere them to the sides of the box, the section with four tabs attached will become the base and the other will be the lid.
I hope you like my version of Stampin’ Up!’s fun treat box, these are so quick and easy to make and now I can save my Mini Pizza Boxes for special gifts but still use that perfectly sized spooky tree design 🙂
