Mini Pizza Box Tags~
Monday is CHF Blog Challenge Chicks time, this week's challenge, using a brayer. I admit, I haven't really used a brayer for much lately other than inking up large stamps like backgrounds.
For the challenge I decided to try a technique I haven't done for a while - crayon resist. The bird from Kim Hughes Cute Curls set was stamped several times in StazOn Timber Brown onto Ranger Glossy Cardstock and highlighted with a white crayon. Adirondack Raspberry was brayered over the entire piece and then buffed with a tissue to bring the white back. The birds were hand cut and used on each scalloped tag. The bird on the pizza box was elevated with dimensional foam.
The mini pizza box is a sized down version of the little bit larger ones that have been seen on various websites and blogs. I scaled it down to fit 3 x 3 cards and envies, or in this case, scalloped tags.
Directions for the mini pizza box are:
Paper size: 5 1/4" x 9 1/2"
Score at 1", 4 1/4", 5 1/4" and 8 1/2"
Rotate and score 1" down each side.
Cut 8 scores - 4 per side on each long side, to where the score lines intersect.
Using a circle punch, punch a half circle in the middle of one of the short ends. This will create an opening to lift the lid.
Attach Scor-Tape to each flap and adhere box together.
