CASE the Catalog #3 Mini Pizza Box with a Belly Band

This time I CASEd the Holiday Catalog page 24 and used a Mini Pizza Box.  This is an All-Occasion Treat or Gift holder.  Enjoy making one of your own.
Mini Pizza Box with Belly BandSUPPLIES:
Mini Pizza Box #144645
Stamps:
  Takeout Treats Rubber Wood-Mount #147861, Clear-Mount#147858
Ink:  Night of Navy
Cardstock:  Night of Navy
Whisper White
Ribbon:  Night of Navy Gingham #144232
Adhesive:  Tear & Tape
SNAIL

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Put your Pizza Box together.  You don’t really need adhesives to hold it together.
2.  Cut your Belly Band pieces:
~Night of Navy cardstock:  3″ x 11″
~Whisper White cardstock:  1-1/2″ x 11″
3. Make your Belly Band
~Fold the Night of Navy piece around the center of the box as shown.  Start with one end on the center of the bottom.  Crease each corner with your fingers as you fold it around the box.  You will end with the other end on the bottom of the box.  Now crease each fold line with your Bone Folder.
~Put some SNAIL down the center of your Whisper White strip.  Place it in the center of your Night of Navy strip.  Smooth down with your Bone Folder so it is flat and straight.  Now crease the fold lines with your Bone Folder.
~Wrap the Belly Band around your box again.  Choose which end will be on the top and which will be on the bottom.  The bottom end will have the Tape facing up on top of the edge of the strip.  The top piece will have the Tape on the underside at the edge of the strip.
~Remove the Tape backing and overlap the ends so the tape only attaches to the Belly Band.  Leave the Belly Band a little loose so it can easily slide off.
~Wrap your ribbon around the Belly Band leaving enough at the end to tie a bow.  Sorry, I forgot to measure it.  I am guessing there was about 6″ on each end to tie the bow.
~Put SNAIL down the center of the Belly Band on the top and bottom.
~Fold your ribbon in half and put the center of the ribbon on the center of the SNAIL on the bottom of your Belly Band.  Wrap it around the bottom, sides, and to the center of the top with both sides of the ribbon.  Tie it once, then tie your bow.  Trim the ends if needed.
~Stamp “Enjoy” with Night of Navy ink on your Belly Band if desired.
Your Mini Pizza Box with a Belly Band is finished.

Remember, the Mini Pizza Boxes are food safe and perfect for a cookie or two.

This Video is 8 minutes and 45 seconds long.

SUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Gourd Goodness  Photopolymer #144785

Tangerine Tango
Card Stock:  Thick Whisper White
Pumpkin Pie
Big Shot:  Seaside Embossing Folder #141481

Tear & Tape Adhesive
Stampin’ Trimmer with scoring blade or Stampin’ Score with Stylus

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Thick Whisper White card stock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score down the 8-1/2″ side at 2″, 4″, 6″, 8″.  Score the 5-1/2″ side at 2″.  Cut up the 5-1/2″ side to the 2″ score line.  Cut out the 1/2″ rectangle flap.
2.  Place 3 box sections in the embossing folder.  Fold the bottom flaps under the embossing folder (so they will stay flat).  Run through your Big Shot.  Now line up the last box section in the embossing folder, folding the bottom flaps down again.  Finger crease all the score lines trying not to flatten your embossing.
3.  Flatten the embossing on the 1/2″ side flap.  Lay the outside side up and put Tear & Tape on the side flap.
4.  Choose which side will be the Front.  Turn the box over so the inside side is facing up.  Put Tear & Tape alon the fold and edge of the front flap and the side flaps.  The back flap does not need tape.
5.  Remove the tape backing from the side tab.  Lay down and attach to the opposite edge as shown in the video.  Now remove the tape backing from the bottom flaps.  Fold in the back flap, then the side flaps, then the front flap.  Put your Bone Folder inside the box and rub so the Tape sticks well to all the bottom flaps.
6.  Stamp the leaf on Whisper White.  Use Crushed Curry for the more solid stamp, and Pumpkin Pie ink for the lined stamp.  Fussy cut the leaf out.  Punch a Starburst from Pumpkin Pie card stock.  Attach leaf.  Attach Punch to box with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
7.  Tie your ribbon around the box using Glue Dots at the corners and/or under the bow if necessary to hold it in place.

Bunny Treat Holder

This cute Bunny Treat Holder is perfect for Easter or Spring Treat or Small Gift Giving.  It is also really quick to make!  So get some Thick Whisper White card stock and some circle and oval Framelits or punches and make one for the people you love.
Bunny Treat Holder, Bunny Gift HolderSUPPLIES:
Marker:  Basic Black #1000082
Card Stock:  Thick Whisper White
Blushing Bride
Big Shot:  Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372
Adhesive:  Tear & Tape
Tombow Glue
Other:  Pencil or pen
Paper Trimmer with Scoring Blade #126889

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut and prepare your papers:
~two large circles from Thick Whisper White card stock.  I used the largest Circl Stitched Shapes Framelit.  Put both circles together on your Paper Trimmer and trim off 1/2″  This will give you a flat bottom.
~Two Thick Whisper White ovals the size you want for your Bunny Ears.  I used the second smallest Stitched Shapes Oval Framelit.
~Two Blushing Bride ovals just smaller than your Bunny Ears.  I used the smallest Stitched Shapes Oval Framelit.
~Decide how wide you want your Bunny Treat Holder to be.  Mine is 1″ wide.  Decide how wide you want the tabs to be.  Mine is 3/8″.  Double this measurement – 3/4″.  So I cut a 1-3/4″ x 8-1/2″ piece to go between the large circles.  Score along each 8-1/2″ side at 3/8″ so you have two long tabs.  Put the Tear & Tape on the tabs now.  Leave the Tape backing on.  Fold both Scored Tabs with your Bone Folder.  This is your Bunny Width Strip.
Bunny Treat Holder-side vid2.  Prepare & Assemble.
~Choose one of your Circles to be the front.  Draw a Bunny Face on it.  Don’t worry if it is not perfect.  It will give you bunny character and make it even cuter!
~If desired you can add a Bunny Tail to the other circle with a small punched circle or a pom pom.
~Glue a Pink Oval to a Whisper White Oval.  Repeat with the next set.
Bunny Width Strip
~Find the center of your Bunny Width Strip either by measuring and marking the tabs at 4-1/4″ or by making light fold marks on the tabs.
~Hold the flat part of your Bunny Face circle next to the center of your Bunny Width Strip.  Try to make the Bunny Face even on both sides of the center mark.  Mark both the tabs where the outside of the Bunny Face is.  I drew a straight line on the tabs.  DO NOT cut between these lines!!
~Now cut out “V” shapes every 3/8″ to 1/2″ along both tabs leaving the part you marked in the center flat.  These “V” shapes will help eliminate bulk and make it easier to attach to your Bunny Face and Back.
Assembly
~Now pull off the Tape Backing.  Have your Tabs folded up with the Adhesive on the outside.
Attach your Bunny Front and Back to the center of each tab with the part you want showing on the facing outward and the plain sides facing the Bunny Width Strip.
~Decide how far up you want the Bunny Width Strip to go on each side of the Bunny Face and Back.
~ Attach one side of the Tab to both sides of either the Bunny Face or Back up as high as you want.  Trim off the excess on both sides.  Repeat with the the other Bunny Face or Back.
~Glue the Bunny Ears inside the Bunny Back.  I put Tombow Glue on about 1/4″ from the bottom of the Bunny Ear and attached it close to the Bunny Width Strip.
~Fill with Treats or a small gift.

1.  Cut your Sweet Sugarplum card stock into two 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ pieces.  Use your Window Box Thinlit to cut out each piece.  Make sure and line up the Thinlit so the outside Tab cutting lines hang just over the edge of the card stock.
2.  Stamp box top and sides.
Piece 1-Box Top
~Stamp the words with the 3 side  pieces above the box top.
~Stamp the sides with the image upside-down.
Piece 2-Box Bottom
~Leave the box bottom blank.
~Have the sides closest to you and stamp the images right side up (opposite direction you stamped Piece 1).
3.  Cut the two side tabs off Piece 1.  Add Tear & Tape to all side and bottom tabs.  Put NO Tape on any of the upper box tabs!!  Start by attaching one side Tab to a side where you cut off the tab.  Move around attaching the Box Bottom and sides until you have formed the Hexagon Box shape.  There will be tabs around the top of the box and the box lid.  DO NOT put tape on these tabs!
4.  Fill up the inside of the box and close the tabs.  Your box is finished.

I will show you more variations of this box later.  So come back for more.

Happy Window Box Making!

INSTRUCTIONS:
Watch This Video for Basic Baker’s Box instructions.
1.  Cut your Baker’s Box Thinlit twice from Thick Whisper White card stock cut at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Fold all score lines so each piece looks the same.
2.  Choose the Washi Tape pattern you like and apply next to the fold lines as shown in photo.

~~Front: Put Tear & Tape on the INSIDE of both sides of the V.
~~Back:  Put Tear & Tape on the OUTSIDE of both sides of the V.
4. Punch and assemble Poinsettia Flower.
~Punch 4 times from Red Glimmer Paper.

~Attach two of the small double flowers that look like a funny bow tie in the center with a Glue Dot or two.
~Attach the four medium petals in between the smaller petals that you already attached.  Use at least two Glue Dots.
~Now add the four large petals so they line up with the small center petals.  If you want your flower to look more round add two more large petals.
~My flower was not holding together well so I criss-crossed Tear & Tape across the back of the large and medium Petals, then attached it to the front of the box.
~Add two of the + pieces to the center with the white side showing.  Use a Glue Dot in the center of each and attach to the Flower center.
3.  Assemble your Box:  Attach the side Tabs.  Now for the bottom flaps:  sides first, then the Back Flap, and the Front Flap is last.
4.  Finish:
~Stamp Merry Christmas on Whisper White card stock in Real Red ink.  Cut out with the Desired Tags & Labels Framelit.  Make sure and use the Small Circle Framelit to cut out the hole.  Or you can use a 1/4″ Hole Punch like I did.  Tie it onto the front hole in your Baker’s Box.  Use a Glue Dot to hold it in position.

INSTRUCTIONS:
Watch This Video for Basic Baker’s Box instructions.
1.  Cut your Baker’s Box Thinlit twice from Crumb Cake card stock cut at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Fold all score lines so each piece looks the same.
~You can stamp the Hardwood image in Chocolate Chip ink either before you cut out your Baker’s Box pieces or after you have cut it out.  I did it after, but it would probably be easier if you stamped before you cut them out.
~Before. Ink up your Hardwood stamp and lay Rubber side up.  Lay your card stock on top of the inked stamp.  Use a Clear Stamp Block and rub it over all the card stock to transfer the ink.  Remove card stock.  Repeat with the second piece.
~After:  Fold the side score lines and do one side at a time.  Lay one folded side of your cut Baker’s Box piece on top of the inked stamp, as above and rub with a Clear Stamp Block.  Repeat for the other side and the other cut piece.
2. Add your Tear & Tape to the side tabs and the bottom flaps.
~~Side Flaps (smaller):  With the outside facing up, put Tear & Tape on the outside edge and the bottom on both pieces.
~~Front and Back Flaps (larger with V in the center. I leave this part flat):
~~~Front: Put Tear & Tape on the INSIDE of both sides of the V.
~~~Back:  Put Tear & Tape on the OUTSIDE of both sides of the V.
3. Cut:
~Cut two Pine Cones from Chocolate Chip card stock.  Angle the two Pine Cones together the way you want and attach them together with Glue Dots.  Tie a bow with the Gold Baker’s Twine.
~Cut 2 small Pine Branches and 1 Medium Pine Branch from Garden Green card stock.
4.  Assemble your Box:  Attach the side Tabs.  Now for the bottom flaps:  sides first, then the Back Flap, and the Front Flap is last.
5.  Decorate:
~Choose the front of your Box.  Attach the Medium Pine Branch about 1″ above the center score line on the box front with a Glue Dot.  Attach the other two Pine Branches on top of the first one with Glue Dots.  Attach the Pine Cones with 2-3 Glue Dots on top of where the Pine Branches meet.
~Tie closed with Gold Ribbon.
