Pizza Pizza (Box that is)

Everyone loves pizza, right? Pepperoni, black olives, pineapple and peppers.. that's my favorite.. just be sure to hold the mushrooms!

And many of you are familiar with the "pizza" box pattern.. so here's the directions on how to make one to fit the 3x3 envelopes and note cards.

Cut a sheet of cardstock down to 6 1/4" by 11".
On the 6 1/4" side, score at 1 1/2" and 4 3/4"
you do not have to draw lines...
I just did so you could see where to score

Next, rotate the paper to the 11" side.
Score at 1 1/2", 4 3/4", 6 1/4", and 9 1/2"

(again, you do not need to draw lines).

Fold all scored lines. Then cut each "tab" as follows...

At this point, you can use a circle cutter to cut out a shape in the
top and adhere a piece of acetate (transparency film) inside
of the box to make a window... or you may choose to leave your box plain.

Glue each short "tab" inside of the adjacent long "tabs" (as shown).

I recommend using "Sticky Strip" as it will hold better.

Once you've glued all your pieces, embellish your box any way you'd like.

The final box is 3 1/4" square and 1 1/2" tall.

The box will hold 10-12 3"x3" notecards plus envelopes (which are 3 1/8" square).

Such a great little gift for those special occasions.
