Mini Pizza Box Tutorial

Stampin up pizza box combo

This mini pizza box (right) is the fastest and easiest box to create and assemble on the planet (at least in my experience), especially with the assistance of a Scor-Pal (although it's not essential). 

The 4" x 4" box accommodates a collection of small cards and envelopes (like the card featured) or a small gift (think stocking stuffer or jewelry). TIP:  Be sure to size the envelope just under 4 x 4 so it will fit in the box and the cards slightly smaller than the envelopes so they will fit inside the envies–make sense?

I was inspired to give the pizza box a try after seeing last week's Splitcoast Ways' to Use Challenge (TLC189) based on this TUTORIAL. and my down-line demo Tiffany's Project.  TIP:  There's also instruction on how to do a 3 x 3 version in the download . . . cute, cute. 

I got to play with many of the wonderful new Stampin' Up! products in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  Download Holiday Mini Here or email me your address for a free copy.  The rub-ons make card making a breeze (crisp and so easy to place) . . . watch for details a 20% off Stampin' Up!
