Hi Stamping Friends!

Anything "mini" is always cute, and nothing is more adorable in the Holiday Catalog than the Mini Pizza Boxes!  Oh my!  They just may be my favorite new item of the season! 

Today I'm sharing a fun little pizza box package that I created as a little gift for my Too Cool Team members last month.

Merry Little Labels Mini Pizza Boxes

It was so much fun to make these little gifts using the ultra-versatile Mini Pizza Boxes and décor items from the Merry Little Christmas suite of products!  I would bet that these gift boxes are the most popular item from the Holiday Catalog, so far!

Just think of all of the awesome things you could put in here!  They were designed to hold a set of 3×3" notes & the mini coordinating envelopes that Stampin' Up! just brought back!  But you could also fill them with candy, jewelry, money, a gift card and much more!  Because it was food-safe, I filled up my team's gift boxes with a delicious double chocolate chip mint cookies from the Cookie Cottage, a local favorite!  Yummy!

Box Belly Band—I wanted the recipients to be able to open the box without ruining the packaging, so I created simple belly band from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper.  I cut a 3" x 12" piece and added a line of Fast Fuse Adhesive on the end that was overlapping the other end of the DSP.  I wrapped it around the box tight enough to be secure, but loose enough that it could easily slip off and on the box.

Altered Belly Band—One thing I love about the Merry Little Christmas DSP is that you can alter the patterns that are black & white!  I needed additional colorful patterns for my boxes, so I simply sponged on some Old Olive ink onto the white background on this tree design.  It really makes the paper stand out!
Wire Ribbon—The black & white 7/8" Striped Ribbon is awesome!  It's a wire-based ribbon, so it's ideal for bending into beautiful bows on packaging!  I tied my ribbon into a double-knot and gave it a little bend for a nice faux-bow.

Here is another example of Old Olive sponging on the snowflake patterned Merry Little Christmas DSP.

Here's one more with the black & white plaid.  I can't wait to try adding other colors to these papers!  Too Cool!  And, did you notice that with many of these Merry Little Christmas papers aren't strictly for Christmas? You can use the plaids & stripes for any time of year!
Terrific Tag—The Mini Pizza Box is decorated with a sweet tag created with the Merry Little Labels Bundle!  I stamped the Merry Little Labels image in Old Olive onto Whisper White card stock, then punched it out with the coordinating Everyday Label Punch.  I think that punch is a keeper—the perfect replacement for the retired Decorative Label Punch! 
The black mat layer is cut with the Lots of Labels Framelits!  Look how those shapes layer together so beautifully! 
Bundle It & Save—Purchase the Merry Little Labels stamp set and Everyday Label Punch together in a bundle to save 10% off the cost of ordering them separately!
Finishing Touches—I finished up with two cool new embellishments!  First I punched a 1/8" hole at the top of the tag, then I threaded through some new Jute Twine and tied it in a knot around the striped ribbon.  I couldn't resist giving the tag a little sparkle with the new Black Rhinestones!  I love this new color choice for bling! 
September Host Code—Don't forget that you can receive a FREE package of Black Rhinestones when you place an order with me in September using the Host Code: G7QEPMPR.
