I hope you all love the color red for Christmas because i got a little carried away with creating my gift card pizza box for todays project. Since i have been using lots of other colors in my projects i have already posted I thought i would get out some red mirror card and create a quick 4x5 pizza box i could cover. And wow i really love the richness of how this came out. The poinsettia's that i created to go with it really made it that much more amazing.
Pizza boxes are super easy to create with just an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper and a Scor-pal. The size of mine is 4x5 and inside I can add some pretty tissue and add a gift card or even a piece of jewelry.
For the basic box i added pieces of mirror card to cover all the sides of my white box and then cut the new "Charming Snowflake Doily in 2 kinds of red mirror card and overlapped them for the top. The tiny red hearts pop out when you cut it so i used the bottom layer of red pieces to fill in the top red for contrast. And to make it stay closed i opted to make a simple band in red to attach the doily too. That way i can add ribbon to the side and it wouldn't interfere with all the textures that i have already on it.
The doily is really pretty and you get a bell and a snowflake charm in this set.
The are so cute!!
This picture really shows off all the details in the die set and also the poinsettia's and the cute little bell charm that comes with this set. The best part is that it went together really easy and you can make a dozen of them in a night for gifts this year! How fun would that be?
Thanks so much for stopping by today and be sure and pop over next Sat for another new idea!
Hugs and Smiles..... Teresa
