Thrifty Christmas Tutorial: Mini Pizza Box, Gift Under $5 Manicure Kit

I saw this adorable Pizza Box and just had to recreate it, here is the original link at Jen Del Muro's blog
I just put to visual, what she wrote down.

I also found a small manicure set and sample nail polishes at a drug store on sale this week, so that's what's going in my box, this would be a great gift for a teenage girl, or a woman that works in an office, or great for someone that travels quite a bit!

Here's the recipe for my Decorated Box:
  • Stamp: Snowman by Rachelle Anne Miller
  • Ink: Stampology Onyx
  • Cardstock: Lavendar from my stash
  • Ribbon: Organza
  • Punch: Marthat Stewart Snowflake
  • Other: CB Snowflake Embossing Folder, Colored Pencils, Nestabilities Circles, Prisma Glitter, Stickles

Now onto the actual Tutorial!

Supplies Needed:
  • Cardstock 6" X 11"
  • Cutter with Scoring Blade/Scor Pal or Bone Folder
  • Scissors
  • Double Stick Tape
  • Embellishments of your choosing
Step 1: Score the short sides of the cardstock 1"

Step 2: Score the long side of the cardstock at 1", 5", 6" and 10"

Step 3: With scissors, cut tabs where scores meet as seen below

Step 4: Flip cardstock over, and put double stick tape on tabs

Step 5: Fold up box, attaching the flaps to the inside of the box

Here's what your box should look like. Here's what the manicure kit and nail polish look like in the box...good fit!
