Valentine Treat Box with a Mini Pizza Box Embellished

Here’s an easy project for Valentine’s Day or any occasion –  Make a Valentine treat box with a Mini Pizza Box from Stampin’ Up!  Use a small box to decorate with paper and embellish to put a special treat inside!

Did you know you can still purchase the Mini Pizza Boxes that were in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog?  They are on the Carryover List of products that are still available at least until the next Annual Catalog comes out.  Then we will see which products continue on in the new catalog or if they are retired. Anyway, you will still find the Mini Pizza Boxes in my Online Store! You will find all the Carryover Products listed in the Online Store under Holiday Favorites.

The Mini Pizza Boxes come flat in the package so storage is not a problem.  Then just fold on all the scored lines and assemble the pizza box. Decorate however you like for whatever occasion! For this box, I chose to use the Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Even though one side of each sheet has gold foil accents, today I chose to use the side without the gold foil. Just cut a square slightly smaller than the top of the lid and individual strips to adhere on the sides of the pizza box.  You can make them the same or contrasting.

For the top of the box, I chose some hearts since we are close to Valentine’s Day, but hearts can be for anything! I used the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies to cut out the two hearts. If you look closely at these dies, you will see there are two styles of hearts – one sweet, and one sassy, I suppose! One shapes curves inward near the bottom and the other shape just has a straight edge to the bottom point. I don’t know which shape is sweet and which shape is sassy, but you can choose! Sometimes I don’t notice these subleties so in case you are like me, I thought I would point it out. Of course you can mix and match the shapes of the hearts however you like!

I also added two kinds of doilies. One is a small gold doily in the Metallic Foil Doilies package.  The other is part of a white doily in the Delicate White Doilies package.  Always good to have embellishments like these on hand for when your project needs a little something And for some extra little embellishments, I stuck on a few of the Glitter Enamel Dots.

At the last minute I added the word “Love” in Gold Foil because I thought the top of the box still needed “something”.  How did I get the word “Love”?  From the Lovely Words Thinlit Dies!  The die cuts out a heart and the word “Lovely”, so I just trimmed off all but the “love” part!  Very easy!  I think it adds just the right thing on this box. The other two words are “hugs” and “friend”.

Do you have some Mini Pizza Boxes that you can make into a Valentine Treat Box with embellishments and designer paper or cardstock?  If not, put them on your Stampin’ Up! order!Valentine Treat Box with a Mini Pizza Box Top Closeup
