Donna Salazar Nov I

This post went live earlier on the Donna Salazar Designs Blog.

Today I have a post for Donna Salazar Designs with a step-by-step tutorial on how to create this funky mini pizza box.
I found the original instructions for this gift box on Splitcoast Stampers.

This month, we are focussing on gifts, Christmas cards and home d├ęcor, so when I found the instructions for this gift box I was all over it :)))
I am always on the look out for different kind of gift wrapping/boxes that are not specific for any season.

Anyway, let's get started.
First you need a sheet of double sided paper (or cardstock) of 6 x 11" size.
I chose the Weathered Winter sheet from the same named CHA2010 paperline

Once cut to size you will need to score the sheet (6" width facing upwards) at 1" and 5" downwards

Then flip the sheet to the side so the 11" width is facing upwards and score at 1", 5", 6" and 10"

Now you will need to cut into the sides for the flaps

If you want to you can spritz some ink onto the paper before you start adhering the edges together.

Place some double-sided adhesive tape onto the edges of the flaps

The flaps will go inwards and once adhered will create a corner such as this.

And this is how it looks in its more bare stages, before my favourite part -  the embellishing - starts.

First I created a border by cutting three strips from the Spring Sky paper using the Creative Book Pages 2 border die.

I added some scrummy bling lines from Want2Scrap to the sides (which also hides - quite cleverly - the part where the border ends meet)

And here is the box in full frontal and half tilted view.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial
