Pizza {box} anyone?

I made this mini pizza box as a challenge over at the Sweet Shoppe (love this site!). It's my first diy box and it turned out beautifully.

I found this template via this lovely blog. I did fiddle with the dimensions to make it fit my card, but it worked out so well that within minutes of the photo being taken, my son claimed the box as his own (I managed to grab the flower & ribbon back though!).

My big tip, if you decide to have a go: when folding the box into shape, check and double check which flaps to apply adhesive to before its too late. I 'dotted' the appropriate flaps just to be sure!


PS I actually got a mention on the Sweet Shoppes blog for this box too!

Designs: Libby Weifenbach (Love Shack kit - which is really, really lovely)
Bloom, ribbon & button: Poppicrafts of course!
Plus wire, seed beads, a black pen and my mini tag punch from Woodware.
