November Gathering

The November Gathering of the Carolina Girls mini-group swap was today and it was my turn to be the hostess. We had a nice time chatting and exchanging ideas and of course eating! Here is the project that I planned for everyone to make.

It was a 4x4 inch pizza box. We used the Always and Upsy Daisy stamp sets for this project. It's super simple to make these, and lots of fun. They are a bit addictive. There are tutorials for this on Splitcoast, I think, but basically what you do is

Trim a piece of cardstock to 6x11. Then use your Scor-Pal and score the long edge at 1, 5,6, and 10 in. Then turn it to the short side and score it at 1 and 5.
Then you turn it back so that you're on the long edges and cut the score marks in to the 1 in. score mark to make flaps. Then you just fold all your score lines, put some adhesive on the flaps and stick it together and you have a box. Then you decorate it however you want to. And we made these 3x3 cards to go inside. Very easy.
