Mini Pizza Box ......

....... except it's not really a pizza box - unless you want a deep pan pizza! LOL!

Hi, I have been busy making a couple of boxes and a couple of gift bags over the last couple of days. My nephew and his children will be coming to stay towards the end of the Easter holidays and so as well as Easter eggs for the children I have made a goodie bag for them too. Charlotte does actually look at my blog at times so I do not want  post the bags for her and S├ębastien until they have been. I don't want her to see them in advance.

Today's Box

The children always get gifts and poor dad gets left out so I made this mini pizza box which I found  here at Split Coast Stampers. (This site has some fabulous tutorials.)   I had to adjust the measurements because I wanted a 2 inch deep box rather than the 1 inch shown in the tutorial.  I bought a little box of Thornton's Chocolates which consists of 8 chocolates in two layers. They fit in this box beautifully.

The picture doesn't show it but the matting layers have actually been run through the GC with M-Bossabilities Dainty Dots. The leaves are SB Foliage mounted on SB Labels 1 with a little gingham bow to finish off. The pictures don't actually do it justice because it actually looks better in real life.

Well it's Good Friday so I hope you all enjoy the coming weekend.

Love and hugs from Christine xx


  1. Good morning Christine, love your box and I am sure your brother will too, anyone receiving this would love it and I know I would keep it even it if it was to reuse and pass it on, it's just one of those kind of boxes. Hazel

  2. This is gorgeous Christine what a super idea makes a simple box of chocolates look so special

  3. Hi Christine, love the box, I've made a few of these but never jigged around the measurements, will have to try that as a 2" deep box would work so well for lots of things. Your brother will definitely love it.
    Happy Easter from

  5. Good Sunny!!!! morning Christine,
    I love this idea, and of course who would only want "1"inch of chocolate when you could have "2"inches.
    Great project, super colours and beautifully made.
