TIOT46 - All Boxed Up

It's Tuesady!! Do you love it?! We have another fantastic Try It Out Tuesday challenge from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design for you today! This week's challenge (TIOT46) calls for a holiday box. Any box size, shape or type will do!

For today's challenge I chose to make a mini pizza box. I got the tutorial from Rachel's blog, what a fun little idea this was! She saved me lots of time with her easy tutorial, so check it out if you'd like to try one of these yourself! It's a really great size for a quick treat, some mini note cards, or even a tiny treasure or two.

Isn't it fun?? Here's another view that shows more of the front, I added a sentiment to the flap here:

And of course an opened view, I added these cute little Christmas Peeps that I could not resist at the grocery store yesterday. You know how that goes, run in for milk and come out with $30 of stuff you *probably* don't need....

For my main image on the top of the box, I decided to pull out one of the Special Edition Ornament Collection by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD images -- this is called Three French Hens. To fit her onto this cute little mini box, I omitted the ornament around her on the rubber image. I really love that these images are so versatile! You can do cards or non-card projects, and you can use the image in many ways too. It's like two-for-one!

I stamped her in
Memento Tuxedo Black ink on PTI white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. After she was colored up, I cut and matted her. In the meantime, I made my mini pizza box, putting it together with SCOR-TAPE, my favorite adhesive ever EVER!! I added some Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses patterned paper and some red metallic for an extra splash. Some Kaisercraft rhinestones of course, and a Prima poinsettia on the front flap and she is all set!

Be sure to check out the SCACD store blog for lots more inspiration! I hope you play along with us, we LOVE to see what you create!
