Interactive Pizza Box Card

February 9th was National Pizza Day. A while back I made an interactive cards with an opening pizza box on the front. with the fun MFT Stamps Pizza My Heart Stamp set MFT|EH and MFT Stamps Pizza My Heart die-namics MFT|EH--this is such a fun set!

I was hanging on to it so that I could make a video about how I created my box, and that might still happen, but right now I am taking a bit of a break from videos.

  • Cut a piece of kraft cardstock to 4" x 7 3/4".
  • Score on the long side at 1/4", 3 1/2" and 3 3/4", then flip to the short side and scored at 1/4" and 3 3/4". 
  • Fold and crease all of the score lines
  • Snip a 1/4" into the four corners of the bottom panel to make tabs to put the box together. 
  • Trim a 1/4" off both sides of the lid (you could leaves those on if you want the lid top tuck into the base).
NOTE: To create the little hole in the centre of the lid I used the smallest circle on my crop-a-dile.

The background was made using the MFT Stamps Tiny Check patterned paper MFT|EH matted with red cardstock. The happy birthday sentiment was white embossed on black cardstock.

I die cut all the things I needed to make my gourmet pizza--the crust, the sauce, the mozzarella and all of the toppings using coloured cardstock. I added a bit of  shading to all of the pieces.

Before gluing the pizza to the inside of the box I cut a small piece of parchment paper to put under the pizza just like when you get a take out pizza. Just a fun little detail!

Thanks so much for stopping in today. Enjoy the rest of the week. 
Stay safe!

This is too cute, Tracey! The tiny red checks remind me of a tablecloth in a little pizzeria and the parchment paper is the perfect embellishment!
