I am so excited that the Holiday Catalog is now LIVE to customers. There are so many amazing things in the Catalog this year. I hope you’ve been saving up, because your wish list is going to be huge.
I usually start off September with Halloween and Fall projects. But don’t worry, I’ll be sprinkling in some Christmas and Winter projects here and there too. I know that people like to get an early start on their Holiday cards.
Today’s project uses one of our brand new Mini Pizza Boxes. The boxes come in white – one side is glossy white and the other side is a flat white. The flat white side can easily be colored like I’ve done here today. I used my Spritzer with a combination of rubbing alcohol and Black reinker to spray the boxes. It took a couple coats to get an even black color.
The boxes are 3.5×3.5×1″. A set of 3×3″ notecards and envelopes would fit perfectly inside. It is also wide enough to fit a credit card size gift card or any other smallish gift.
Here are some tips to recreate this project.
- Spray the outside of the Mini Pizza box with your Spritzer. You might need a couple coats to get even coverage. Set aside to dry.
- One the Box is dry, glue your pattern paper square to the box lid.
- Using your 1/8th” hole punch, punch two holes on each side of the lid. Thread the Black Vintage Crochet Trim through the holes and tie in a bow on one side.
- To make the rosette, I use two circles to sandwich the rosette and hold it together. The circle on the back should be small enough that it won’t be seen. The rosette is a strip of paper that’s 1″ x 12″ long. I scored it every .25″. Fold on each score line back and forth so you end up with peaks and valleys. Using Tear & Tape, glue the two ends together.
- I bunch my rosette so the hole in the center stays as small as possible. I used my fine-tip glue to glue it to the base circle and then used the fine-tip glue to glue the top circle. You will need to hold it in place until the glue starts to set.
- Once the rosette is dry, you can glue it to the top of the box. I used dimensionals to glue it down.
- Center the Pumpkin Pie pattern paper on the black circle. Then add the label using dimensionals.
- I stamped the Happy Halloween on a bit of Pumpkin Pie paper and then punched it out.
- Black Rhinestones are the perfect embellishment to finish this off.
I think this will make the perfect treat holder for someone special this Halloween. I’ve got a few more ideas for these Mini Pizza Boxes. These are going to be great for Holiday Gifts.
