It is time for another Weekly Challenge at Joan's Gardens. This week we want to show you how to create a small gift box with a band. This style box is called "Mini Pizza Box". There are tutorials on how to create this box at SCS and also Sherry Cheever has a video. The measurements on my box are the same as these but the way I complete it is a little different, which is explained below. The band I created is a 1" strip lined with a slightly wider band. The design paper used on my box is from the Graphic 45 "Christmas Emporium" 12x12" paper pad. The pretty poinsettia was created using the Heartfelt Creations "Petite Poinsettia Precut Set" (HCPC 3415). A Cheery Lynn "Holly Flourish (B148) and Geometric Snowflake (DL176) were added under the poinsettia. The tag is also from the Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium pad. A small bow was added at the top of the tag.
Mini Pizza Box Tutorial
Below are examples of how corners will look according to where you cut the tab.
Next create a band that will slip off and decorate it. Cut a 1" strip for a "belly band". Wrap it around the box, creasing on the corners, and attach ends with a strong adhesive. This band will slip off the box. Now you can decorate the band with any embellishments you like and add a tag..
Go over to Joan's Gardens to get complete information about this challenge. I'll be looking forward to seeing your boxes.
