Simply Magnolia (DT) - Anything BUT a Card

Happy Sunday and welcome to another challenge at the Simply Magnolia challenge blog.  This is where all Maggie stamp lovers meet, so do pop around and make some new friends and re-acquaint yourself with some old ones.

Our challenge this fortnight is to make Anything, BUT a Card...  Well, this challenge sure had me stepping out of my comfort zone again.  What will I make?  I rummaged through some printed tutorials I have stashed away and decided to try this cute little Mini Pizza Box by Jen del Muro.  All you need to make this is:

* One 6" x 11" piece of cardstock
* Scor-Pal™  or other scoring tool
* Scissors
* Adhesive
* Additional cardstock and embellishments to decorate your box

 Click here for the tutorial.  This was so...so easy to make.


Looks like a card, right?  No, it isn't... lookie here....

and here...

and finally... last one...


Cardstock:  A biscuit coloured Bazzill cardstock. The gingham paper is from Queen of Hearts.
Stamp:  Water can Tilda. You can purchase her from the Magnolia-licious store.
Punch: Martha Stewart's Arch Lattice.
Embellishments: Ribbon, pearls and flowers from my stash. The leaves were kindly punched for me by my friend Sandra.

I really had fun making this mini pizza box. Our wonderful sponsor this fortnight is from the lovely Tracey's store... Scrapbooking Allsorts.  Please pay her a visit for all your crafty needs.


Thanks for popping by and if you'd like to comment on my project, I would be delighted.

hugs Sharon x
