Where's The Pizza?

Hello.  Welcome.  It's been a busy sort of a day.  It should have been a crafty day, grey and wet, and I did get some things done but the internet was on holiday and I've been working evenings this week so this is my first chance to share.  My man came to my crafty space to see what I was doing.  
"What you doing?" he asks
"Mini-pizza box" says I
"Pizza?" says he
"Nope, not even a mini one".  
I think he went away a little disappointed.  I on the other hand am very pleased with my first ever mini-pizza box.   I used the tutorial over at Scor-pal.  This was so easy to do with my scor-pal but still easy if you don't have a scoring board. 

I scored and folded MME I Believe Poinsettia paper.  Love these double sided papers for making boxes.  I cut a thumb hole to make opening easier.  It's a bit rough  I was going to use a die until I realised you can't successfully put a folded box through a bigshot!! 


I cut some of these using the Poinsettia paper again and also the Dots paper from the same range.  I used Crafts Too Frames 9 die and X-cut Ornate Frames die.  The edges have been inked with Brilliance Red Rocket Gold and the little strips I added are again from MME I Believe.  I found these die cut paper ribbons on the accessory sheet.  

I stamped the witch from The Greeting Farm Spooktacular stamp set, I have the red rubber edition, and re-dressed her for Christmas.   I coloured with promarkers and added clear Wink of Stella.   I love these little stamps and am managing to find uses for them other than just Halloween.  Great fun looking for new potential in old stamps.  Or even new stamps.......

So here's my finished box.  I've added some red ribbon to the die cut corners, a mini pom-pom to her hat and some sticky gems and snowflakes from Craft Creations.    

And inside?  A set of matching tags.

    Thanks for joining in our "Christmas with your Dies" challenge at More Than One Score with Scor-Pal and Good Luck!

    PS, a tip for the thumb hole is to use a circle punch inserted just half the way across, works perfectly!
