Mini Pizza ~ Nugget Box
Here's a twist on the mini pizza box. I combined it with the cute Hershey's Nugget boxes I've seen on many creative blogs. I don't have exact measurements, as I just made this up as I went along. I took the height of the nugget (it's approximately 3/4" high). Then, I took out eleven nuggets and arranged them as I wanted them to fit into my box. I took my ruler and measured length and width, and that's how I figured out the dimensions of my box. If you know how to make a 'basic box' then you can pretty much improvise how large you would want your pizza box to be. I also took into consideration the size of my stamped image. Isn't this one of the cutest Halloween images you've seen? I was able to purchase it for the low, low price of $3.00 on an online "garage sale" (no, not eBay). It was an unmounted stamp, so double the good fortune for me. As you can see, I used my Fiskars Threading Water punch on the sides of the box (and on the back, also, but you can't see it). I added pop-dots beneath my stamped image (colored with COPIC markers, by the way), and threaded ribbon beneath the stamped image and under the box. I had to work quickly to photograph the outside of the box, whie still outdoors, as the sun was starting to shine down on my table and causing quite a glare. I took the photo of the nuggets inside my house, so I apologize if it's darker than the other pictures. I had so much fun making this. Quick and simple. Thanks for stopping by!
