Today’s project is another gift box. In the Holiday Catalog on page 44 there are these adorable Mini Pizza Boxes which are sold in a set of 8 and measure 3.50″ x 3.50″ x 1.00″. They are all white and can be decorated for any occasion. I didn’t include any of these on my order but have loved all of the projects I have seen made with them, so I searched for some instructions on how I could create one myself using my Simply Scoring Tool and some designer series paper. Luckily I found a video from about three years ago that was easy enough to follow. And here is my mini pizza box:
My finished box measures 4.25″ x 4.25″ x 1.00″.
I started out with a piece of designer series paper that was cut to 8.25″ x 11.50″. On the 11.50″ side score at 1.00″, 5.25″, 6.25″ and 10.50″. On the 8.25″ side score at 1.00″, 2.00″, 6.25″ and 7.25″.
See the below photos for instructions on where to cut and where the adhesive goes.
You will assemble by applying the adhesive to one side at a time. Tuck in the two tabs on each side of the panel on which you put the adhesive and fold the long piece with the adhesive over on top of the two tabs. If the panel will not fold over flat, then you need to cut a little bit more off of the tabs. Repeat on the other side.
The “top” portion of the pizza box, the side panels tuck inside of the box and the two tabs should slip into pockets that you created when assembling the bottom portion of the box. (NOTE: If you put adhesive on both panels on each side of the box, you will not have a pocket; therefore it is important that you only put the adhesive on the top panel.) You may need to trim your tabs a bit to get them to slip into the pockets.
Sorry if these instructions are confusing. If you would prefer to view the YouTube video from which I got my instructions search for PootlesPapercraft for video named “4×4 Traditional Pizza Box Tutorial”. (Or, you could just buy the ones in the Holiday Catalog, Item #144645, $6.00!)
Here are the Stampin’ Up! supplies that I used in the design of my mini pizza box, all of which can quickly be added to your shopping cart by clicking on their thumbnails below:
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. Until next time, stamp on my friends.
