Hi everyone and Happy Thursday :) It is my turn this week to do another tutorial for the store blog. I love making mini pizza boxes so I decided to show the process I use to make them. I in no way invented this little box, so I can't take credit for it. I just thought I'd show the steps I take to make it :)
To begin, you will need the following supplies: cardstock, scoring tool, and design paper and embellies to decorate your box.
Step 1. Cut a piece of cardstock 6" by 11".
Score across the long side of the cardstock at 1", 5", 6", and 10", as depicted in this picture.
Score across the short side of the cardstock at 1" in from each side (or at 1" and 5" if using a ScorPal), as depicted.
Fold along all the creases, as depicted.
Cut each line on either side of the the long sides of the cardstock until you reach the perpendicular line. I have marked in black ink in the photograph exactly where to cut.
Here is what it will look like once these lines are cut:
Place Sticky Strip, or any other kind of strong two-sided tape onto the inside of all of the tabs, as depicted.
Peel off your Sticky Strip and adhered the tabs to the inside of the box, as depicted.
Here is your finished box:
Decorate your box.
Step 9 (optional)
You can fill your box with anything you like. I tend to fill my box with little blank cards for friends and neighbors. If you want to fill your box with cards, your card bases need to measure 3 1/2" by 3 1/2". The box will hold at least 4 cards, even if they have lots of embellies.
Here are two cards I made for my box (I made two of each):
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that it is easy to follow. This truly is a very simple box to make and there are so many different ways to decorate it. Thanks so much for stopping by.
