Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin’ Up Independent Demonstrator from Joshua, TX.
Today, I’d like to share with you this adorable little Mini Pizza Box along with just a few goodies in the craft room.
*A few Notes Before We Begin*
We were just as shocked that the 6×6 Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper sold out as lightning fast as it did. With it no longer being available this project is intended for those who were fortunate enough to be able to get it before it sold out.
Stampin’ Up announced their Retirement List yesterday and the Mini Pizza Boxes are on the list of products that will retire May 3rd.
The 2 1/4″ Circle Punch is also on Stampin’ Up’s Retirement List.
I also anticipate that the Springtime Joy Stamp Set will also retire at the beginning of May.
*A Couple Recommendations*
I highly recommend that anyone who may not have the Springtime Joy Stamp Set or the Mini Pizza boxes in their current craft stash and may be interested in doing this project with a different DSP to order them quickly before they sell out.
Since the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper is no longer available, I can reccomend a couple of sheets of the current Subtles Designer Series Paper.
Our Layering Circles Dies are a good substitute for the Circle Punch.
*Instructions For Assembly*
Lay a piece of DSP on a flat surface opposite side of the design you want to show on the outside. Using a pen or pencil trace the outline of half of the box.
There are notches in the box that you’re going to want to take note of a little later on. Definitely trace those. In order to do that, I simply folded the box up to where the notches folded out and traced. There will be 5 areas total. I also did not put DSP on the sides of the box that folded in to create the box. I simply folded them out of the way and continued to trace.
Once the tracing was complete, I used a pair of paper snips to cut out the traced outline.
I used a craft knife to cut to slice along where those notches were located.
I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach the DSP to the Mini pizza box and repeated process for the other half of the mini pizza box.
Repeating the process is only needed if you’re using 6″×6″ DSP. If you’re using 12″×12″ DSP than you would trace it all at once and then cut and glue down.
I stamped the lamb image from the Springtime Joy Stamp Set in Momento Black Ink and hand colored her with the Stampin’ Blend Markers.
I used the 2 1/4″ Circle Punch to punch the lamb image out and the layering Circles Dies to die cut the scalloped edged circle.
I assembled the lamb image and the scalloped circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I cut a fair amount of the Pool Party Sheer Ribbon. (Again, I NEVER measure out just how much I actually use – enough to wrap around the box and tie a bow.) I wrapped the ribbon around the box, tied a bow and snipped off the excess.
I added Stampin Dimensionals to the back of the scalloped Cardstock and adhered it over the ribbon.
This project was designed for the recipient to untie the bow and lift the lid of the Mini pizza box to reveal the treats inside and then be able to re-tie the bow if they choose to keep the box.
Several weeks ago, I shared the uncertainty of my peach tree after the huge Snow Apocalypse here in Texas. I’m so pleased to make the announcement that she survived and is currently covered in peach Blossoms and starting to sprout some leaves at last!
Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope that you’ve enjoyed this project and will join me again soon for another edition soon.
