Valentine Pizza Box

I saw the pattern for this little pizza box with mini-valentines inside it, I just knew I had to do it! The picture seems decevingly large, but it is small and really easy to make. What a great little Valentine gift it would be for someone. And who doesn't love pizza?

This is a picture of the oustide of the box. Let me know if you need dimensions, and I would be happy to e-mail them to you! I just know you want to try out the pizza box!

The box is made from Riding Hood Red Cardstock and I used Sticky Strip to keep it together. The regular Snail adhesive doesn't seem to stil as well for these 3-d projects, and you want to make sure that your box doesnt' come apart! The patterned paper is the new Candy Lane Designer Paper that can be purchased in the upcoming catalog being released on January 19th! It can also be purchased in the Love you Much Bundle, and details on this bundle can be found on my post here. The Hugs and Kisses is from the Love You Much stamp set and punched out with the 1 1/4" punch. It has a 1 3/8" punch in Close to Cocoa behind it, and then a Riding Hood Red Scallop Circle Punch. The scallop is pierced with my Paper Piercer. This is all up on blocks, of course (dimensionals). A piece of Choclate Chip Ribbon runs across the top of the box. The hearts that run across the bottom are stamped, and then punched out using the 3 heart punch from the Love You Much Bundle.

Here is a shot of the box opened:

And now onto the cards. I put 4 3x3 mini cards inside which make the perfect little love note! You could probably put envelopes in there as well, although I didn't think about that until just now....

There are 4 cards in the box, 2 of each design. The card measures 3x3. The patterned paper is again the Candy Lane Designer Paper. The bases are Pink Pirouette and Close to Cocoa. The little love birds (don't you just love them ♥) are from the Love you Much set and stamped on Very Vanilla and punched out using the 1 3/8" Circle Punch. The Scallop Circle Punch was used on Pink Pirouette and Riding Hood Red and then pierced and up on blocks. The bottom of the designer paper was punched with the Scallop Edge Punch (if you don't have this punch yet - it is a must have! Makes things so easy and elegant). Some Chocolate Chip Ribbon runs underneath the medallion. The heart above
the love birds is stamped using the Love you Much set and then punched out using the heart punch from the same set. I think the 4 of these cards in this little box just are so darling! And I just LOVE the Candy Lane Designer Paper!! Who doesn't love pink and brown together??!!
