This week we are featuring "Holiday Favorites" and I chose to feature the new Pizza Box. I love that these boxes are just the right size and are food safe. Shall we say holiday cookies are on the horizon? 

I wasn't quite ready for Christmas cookies just yet so I chose the Painted Harvest stamp set along with the Painted Autumn Designer Paper. We even have the Leaf Punch to punch out all of those stamped leaves:

So how did I turn my white box into an orange colored box? I mixed rubbing alcohol and 3-4 drops of Pumpkin Pie Ink Refill into a Stampin' Spritzer and sprayed the whole box, (not the inside though). By using rubbing alcohol, the ink dries rather quickly.

For layers on top of the box I added the following:

  • Old Olive Cardstock 3-1/4" x 3-1/4"
  • Painted Autumn Designer Paper 3" x 3". I glued this layer on with Stampin' Dimensionals for height.
  • The flower was stamped using Daffodil Delight Ink and the center was stamped with Basic Black Ink. I hand-cut the flower and glued it in place using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Four leaves stamped with Garden Green Ink. The bold image was stamped on scrap paper first and then onto Whisper White Cardstock for the lighter look to it. Stamp the detailed image with the same ink, but full strength. Cut all the leaves out with the Leaf Punch, glue and tuck them in place under the flower. 
  • The three white leaves were cut using Whisper White Ink and the Flourish Thinlits Dies. Glue and tuck those under the flower also. 
  • The sentiment is from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set, stamped using Garden Green Ink. I hand-cut around the sentiment real close and cut both ends into a "V". Glue in place with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Wrap Tear & Tape around all four sides of the box and press the Old Olive Stitched-Edge Ribbon into the adhesive and tie into a bow.
