If you have not had a thorough look through the new 2017 Holiday Catalogue, you may have missed seeing these super cute Mini Pizza Boxes! There are so many ways to use them and of course you can decorate them any way you like as they come as a blank canvas! I had a chance to sit down and make a few different versions of these pizza boxes and today’s project is one of them- a super simple way to use Designer Series Papers to create a lovely mini card gift set.
How To Make This Hand Made Card Set:
To make this project you will need a 3″x12″ strip of Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper and one sheet of Whisper White cardstock, and some scrap pieces of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. You will also want the new Mini Envelopes to fit inside the Mini Pizza Box!
First thing, the Whisper White cardstock was cut to make 3 x 3″x6″ strips, which were scored and folded to create 3 x 3″ mini cards. You can fit more cards in this box, but I wanted to keep this project simple.
My goal with this project was to use what I had in front of me to create some quick matching cards to go in this box. Since I had used a piece of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper for the cover of the box, I used what was left over from the strip I had cut to finish off the cards inside the box.
I also used what was left of the Whisper White cardstock to finish off the box front and cards. I stamped the leaves from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist and then in Garden Green ink- then punched them with the Leaf Punch.
I used the Whisper White pieces to stamp the greetings from the Painted Harvest stamp sets and since I wanted to add a few birthday cards to the card set, I used the Tabs for Everything stamp set too. I used the Classic Label Punch and the Pretty Label Punch to punch out the greetings.
The Happy Birthday card also uses the Pretty Label punch, but I turned the punch around and only used one side to punch out the tiny greeting.
I had some Lemon Lime Twist cardstock scraps, so I punched them with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and Classic Label punch to add some accents to the cards.
All the cards were put together and put into the Mini Envelopes to gift together inside the Mini Pizza Box.
All ready for gift giving! A perfect little hostess gift for Thanksgiving or any other fall gathering, or even just as a little thank you gift.
