Sarah and Emma's Mini Pizza Boxes

DSCN5012 DSCN5015 

Well, these boxes aren't for pizza, but they are for goodies, gifts and scripture quotes for my girls during the 12 days before Christmas.  I knew Emma would like the elegant, traditional Christmas colored one, and I created the Pink and Cocoa one specially for Sarah.  She loves pink right now and I knew it was what she would want.  I showed them to her when I was done and asked her which one she wanted and without hesitation she picked the one I had made her.  I don't know what I would have done if she hadn't picked it - made another of the red ones I guess!!!

Where did I come up with these boxes?  From Splitcoast Stampers!!  The Technique Lover's Challenge (TLC189) this week was to make these mini pizza boxes.  If you check out this link to TLC189 you can find the directions and a template for making them yourself. I was amazed at just how quickly they came together and they end up being 4x4.  They're SO adorable!!!

I wanted to show you different views so that you can see the ribbon I adhered to the sides.  So, click on the pics for an up-close view and see below them all for the recipes.
