Blog PaRtY: Challenge 4

Hi everyone! How's your day so far? Ready for another challenge??? This one comes from Susan Liles and Jen del Muro...

Who’s gobbled up enough turkey to last them until next year? I know at the Liles’ house, we are “stuffed” to the waddle! So rather than dwelling on having to eat those leftovers AGAIN, Jen del Muro and I thought it would be fun to engage ya’ll in a little MINI PIZZA BOX challenge to get our minds off that turkey! As a matter of fact, just go ahead and call up Papa John’s while you make your little box!

The MINI PIZZA BOX is a lot of fun to put together and there are so many ways to embellish it! It’s the perfect size to hand to someone for a little “thank you” gift. Filled with peppermints, chocolate, gift cards or a wrapped up large cookie inside it makes for an inexpensive way to let someone know you are “thanking” of them. It’s also SUPER EASY to make and they come together really quick. The finished size is 4x4x1 inches.

{HERE} is link to a very short and simple tutorial on Splitcoast written by our very own Jen del Muro. You'll be hooked in no time!

And here's some sneaky peeky inspiration from Jen and Susan to get the juices flowing...

Designed by Jen del Muro
Jen's sample uses stamps from the new Thankful Accents set.

To play along, just make a new handmade creation using the pizza box template. Post a picture of your creation online and link us to it using the Mr. Linky widget below. Enter by 10pm Mountain on Monday, 11/30 for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Verve!

Here are the rules, they're pretty easy:
  • Each entry must be unique and new
  • Please do not combine any of today's 5 blog party challenges
  • You may combine with any other types of challenges (SCS, blogs, etc)
  • Verve stamps are NOT required
  • If possible, please link back to this post when you upload your creation
  • Have fun!
