Thank you for stopping by Stamping Flair today. Trust you have had a great week. Have you been able to get any crafting done? I know how hard it is to find the time between working, housework, being a mum and all the other ‘stuff’ we have to do but isn’t it great when we just get a moment to relax and create? I find it so relaxing. I’m on 2 weeks holidays so I hope to get a bit more crafting done and get a few sleep ins too!
For today’s Step-it-Up Sunday, I wanted to create something different so I chose the Mini PIzza Box. They are pre cut, food safe boxes which just need to be folded and take less than a minute to assemble. These are so cute and there are so many ways in which you can decorate them whether it be by stamping, spritzing, covering with DSP – many options.
I was inspired by this colour combination.
Use the Artisan Textures stamp to cover the sides of the pizza box in Mango Melody. Apart from being a lovely texture stamp, this stamp also easily and quickly adds background colour. Then attach a 3 1/4” piece of Tropical Escape DSP to the top.
Add the strip of Berry Burst cardstock, sentiment and champagne foil leaf and you’ve got a very quickly created, handmade gift box.
Step-up to the next level by stamping the border with the stripe stamp. Stamp over the Designer Series Paper for added interest. To create the layered look for the sentiment, stamp it on the Tropical Escape DSP and punch out. Then punch another piece from Granny Apple Green cardstock and cut it in half. Layer this behind the sentiment and cut off any part that is overhanging.Add these for Intermediate Card
You can create an extra special gift box with the Advanced step-up. Add a strip of Basic Black cardstock to the Berry Burst panel. Stamp and heat emboss the flowers from the Falling Flowers stamp set. Watercolour them using an Aqua painter and a Berry Burst ink refill and once dry, die cut them. Add some die cut leaves from the Tropical Thinlits dies and arrange with the punched out leaves. I have cut some apart to make them fit in better.
These boxes make lovely treat holders and are so quick to put together you could have several ready to go for those last minute gifts.
