I am very excited to be posting my first design team project for Kat Scrappiness. Up on the blog today I am sharing a fun new project using one of the adorable new stamp sets available this month. It's called Punny Snacks and it features some really cute food stamps and some cute punny sayings. I decided to think "outside the box" for my project and create a mini pizza box to hold some small note cards that are food themed as well. This little box could also be a 3-D card by itself or it could hold a gift card as well.
When I first got my hands on this fun stamp set I immediately broke out my copic markers and colored up all of the cute little food stamps. I made a chart showing the exact colors I used for each stamp to save me time later when I wanted to use them again. Here is the chart all colored with a list of all the copic markers that I used if you're interested.
The only marker I didn't list was the colorless blender, marker "0", which I used to draw some color away from the hamburger bun to give the appearance of seeds.
The first thing I did was create the mini pizza box to put the note cards in. It looks complicated but in my video I will show you step by step how to assemble this cute little box.
The next step was to decorate the top of the box with some traditional red gingham patterned paper to match the decor of a real pizzeria. I added the sentiment "you have a pizza my heart" to the top and I hand cut two slices of pizza to pop up on opposite corners of the box.
I then made 5 cute little notecards to fit inside of the box. I used the rest of the food stamps and funny puns to decorate the top of 5 mini note cards. I used the Stitched Postage Stamp Edge Rectangle Dies to showcase the stamps and sentiments on the cards.
I just love how they all look together with all those fun colored images!
The last step was to decorate the inside of the box so it could be used on its own as a 3-D card or gift card holder. I colored and cut 6 slices of pizza and assembled them on a white circle to resemble a pizza pie. Just for some added interest I used a paper crimper to give some texture to the bottom piece of paper in the box and make it look like corrugated cardboard. I also added the sentiment "we're made for each other" to finish it off.
This was a super fun project to make and you can watch the process in a video below or on my YouTube channel. I will list the products below with links.
