MTME Pretty Patterns #36

Hi - it's me again.  If you're here cuz you're stopping by to see my Digital Delights post, just scroll on down.  But since you're here, you might as well check out this other super cute project I created with this week's Pretty Pattern from My Time Made Easy.

Now, I know Lauren has some really awesome Pretty Packages available in .svg and .pdf formats, but this was so easy with one piece of cardstock and a scoring tool.

Scoring tool?  Pretty Packaging?  You may be thinking to yourself... what is she talking about, looks like a card to me.  But, alas, it's a package....

Following directions for a mini pizza box that I found on Scor-Pal's site and then doing what I wanted to do, I made this "Warm Up Kit."  For a mini pizza box, the cardstock will measure 6" x 11" that when scored and folded will create a 4" x 4" pizza box.  My card stock measures 7" x 11" with finished box of 4" x 5" rectangle.

This box is large enough to hold a hot chocolate mix, some mini marshmallows, a candy cane [stirring stick] and a couple of yummy butter cookies.  You could even hide a cute little message on the inside of the lid.
