Love You 2 Pizzas

Hi, Kris here  :)  I hope you had a lovely Sunday.  I got a li'l crafty today using the new Punny Pairs set.  This digi was perfect for a "Mini Pizza Box" - I followed the tutorial on SCS here.  What a fun li'l box to fill with a cookie/candies or maybe a pizza gift card? or other for a special someone you love.

I used my lasso tool in PS to remove the sentiment in between the boxes and pasted them on a separate part of the cardstock.  Then I printed the image twice so I could pop up one set for dimension.  

When making this type of box, you don't want to wrap the ribbon completely around the lid (like I did at first) and tape it because you won't be able to lift the lid... it needs room to "unfold" when lifting.  So, I then cut the ribbons at the back corners and taped those down.  (see pic below)  It would prolly be fine there w/out decorating the back edge of box, but I went ahead and made it match the rest.  :) 

Of course to match my digi on the front, I added a red heart to the inside lid :)  

I'm excited for our new challenges to start... the FIRST SATURDAY in February!! :)  We'll have some fun themes so I hope you'll join us.

theme is to use a Thank You sentiment

which is to use something NEW (a tool, a new card fold, a technique... anything that's new to you!)  I used a brand new digi set.  :)  Tania will be posting more from the OMCF team very soon!
