Just back from the hospital. Fortunately there wasn't too much of a delay so John didn't get too uptight today. Flippin' men!!
I have made two mini pizza boxes. They are exactly the same size, 4 inches square and 1 inch deep, but look so different. I left the first one very plain and used purple striped card stock. I made a band to go round the middle which just slides off. The centre band really transforms what is a very plain box. I die cut the largest die from SB Venetian Motifs and then made the purple and white aster from SB HeartFelt Creations Delicate Asters.
The second one I cut from ivory card stock and then used Martha Stewart PATP Cherish punches to make the top and bottom. I added an old LOTV topper which has been in my stash since forever, and then just added some pearls, poinsettias and Cheery Lynn Flourish leaves which were in the drawer with the other ready cut stuff.
I really love these little boxes. They are the simplest boxes to make and yet can look so different depending how you decorate them. I also like the way the lid is attached to the base. For this size you only need a piece of card 6" x 11". I have adjusted the measurements and made bigger ones and deeper ones in the past so they are pretty versatile. However, I have only ever made square ones. My next task will be a rectangular box.
