While attending OnStage, I participated in a swap so I opted to use the mini pizza box and embellish it to create a WOW 3-d project. One of my favorite stamps in the Occasions Catalog is the Petal Passion Suite and it has become one of my “go to” bundles so naturally I reached for it to use for creating a topper for the box. Using a strip of the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper (1 3/4″ in width), a belly band was made to wrap around the mini-pizza box. Then using the large circle framelit from the Stitched Shaped Framelits and Whisper White cardstock, a base to was cut to use for adhering a layer of leaves, a loop of mini sequin trim and the large floral spray from the Petal Palette stamp set, The leaves were cut from Tranquil Tide card stock using a leaf framelit from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits set. The floral spray was stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink then sponge daubers were used to apply Berry Burst and Tranquil Tide inks. The sentiment is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set and was stamped onto a strip of Berry Burst cardstock using the tuxedo black ink and cut using the Petals and More Thinlits Dies, which were also used for cutting the stamped floral spray. Dimensionals and glue dots were used to hold the layers in place. The finishing touch was to add a double looped bow using solid Whisper White Baker’s Twine and adding a few “dew drops” from the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes. Recipients could easily slide the belly band from the mini pizza box to see what goodies were inside for them to enjoy!
With the release of the retiring list, I was relieved to see that the Petal Palette bundle will not be retiring…Hooray!!!
Thanks for stopping by! Check back again and in the meantime, happy stamping!
This project has been on my desk since before the holidays waiting for me to photograph and share with you. I was asked to prepare samples using the “A Little Wild” bundle for the Luv 2 Stampin GA team meeting and decided to make alter a mini pizza box to create a gift box. You’ll notice that the box is a Bath & Body Hand Sanitizer that seemed designed especially to coordinate with the “A Little Wild” stamp set!
A window was cut in the mini pizza box using the Layering Circle Framelits. Additionally, the framelits were used to cut the rim framing the window from Sky Blue cardstock. The box top was lightly sponged with Sky Blue ink. The bees were randomly stamped on the box top and also along the sides of the box using Archival Basic Black. The body of the bees was colored using a Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker. The bear was stamped onto Shimmery White cardstock and colored using an aqua marker with Soft Suede ink. Note the shading on the bear. The hive was stamped using Soft Suede onto a scrap of Crushed Curry cardstock.
I was happy that the mini pizza boxes made it on the Carryover List from the Holiday Catalog as they are the perfect size when presenting someone with “a little something”. More ideas using the boxes will be shared in upcoming posts.

While wrapping the last of the Christmas gifts today, I had a couple small gifts needing packaging. Off to my craft room to find something that would work…the Mini Pizza Boxes were perfect and by using a few other items in my craft room, the wrapping was done in record time. Now all gifts are wrapped and stashed under the Christmas tree!
Quick Christmas Gift Packaging using Stampin’ Up! Mini Pizza Boxes
After assembling the pizza boxes and adding the gift, Stampin’ Up! Baker’s Twine was used to wrap around three of the boxes. The center two boxes were wrapped multiple times with the Baker’s Twine, taped on the back and then the strands were separated on the front to appear like a tree. Each was embellished with a tree topper! The other was wrapped on all sides with the Baker’s Twine and then a Stitched Felt Embellishment was added. On another of the boxes, two of the Boxwood Wreaths Embellishments were unwound and then rewrapped to create one larger wreath for adding to the Mini Pizza Box. Baker’s Twine was used to mimic a hanger and a Season of Gifts Mini Gift Bow was added to add a bit of color to the wreath. So if you have some last minute gifts needing special wrapping, be sure to look through your Stampin’ Up! supplies.
Tomorrow is Christmas Eve and I’m expecting family to start arriving mid-day so my next posting is planned for later in the week. In the meantime…
Thanks for stopping by and check back next week.
