Christmas pizza box gift
Where has the last week gone? So sorry about the lack of posts. Just life getting in the way of stamping. I'm finally back with a Christmas pizza box, which I made for Jane, to thank her for being such a lovely hostess. It's filled with 10 love note sized Christmas cards, which would be ideal to use as gift cards. As regular readers know, Jane's workshop theme was red & green Christmas, so I used these in the gift, to give her some more ideas for Christmas. I first saw the pizza box idea here on Sarah's blog (waving *hi* Sarah!) & I just had to try making one. I was happily surprised to find they're so quick & easy to make too, which is always a bonus.The box is made all in one piece & looks just like a mini pizza box, as you can see here. My finished box dimensions are 8cm x 8cm x 2.5cm.Here are all the card designs I included. Those good with maths will realise there's 4 cards missing - I doubled up on 4 of my favourites! No doubt, you'll also realise that I used 'Season of Joy & Short & Sweet (again!), & the fab Merry Christmas stamp from "Occasional Greetings'. The card colours are, vanilla, garden green & real red & very simple. If you'd like more information, just let me know.
I've finally taken better (I hope) pics of the Christmas cards from my last SAS class today, so I'll be back tomorrow hopefully to show you the first one! In the meantime, happy stamping!
