Watercolor Christmas Mini Pizza Box Treat

I had a great time at my vendor event last night!  Met lots of fun people and sold lots of fun little treats and gifts for Christmas!  I can’t wait to do it again next month!  Over the new few days, I will be sharing some of the other items I made for the event as well!

This first project is one of my favorites. It’s a mini pizza box filled with chocolate Turtles and Dove chocolates!  The box is wrapped with a 3 inch strip of paper from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper.  I then wrapped a piece of Cherry Cobbler 1/4 Inch Double Stitched Ribbon around the box to add a pop of color.  I then adhered a silver Foil Snowflake and added the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it just a little height.  I layered the sentiment with Silver Glimmer Paper, and the sentiment itself is from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set.  I LOVE the elegant fonts used in this set!  The holly and berries are from the Good Tidings set, and are two step stamping images in Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler.   I love the contrast of the black with the other colors, as well as the sparkle the foil and glimmer paper gives to this project!

For this project, I used Fast Fuse adhesive.  Snail adhesive is my go to adhesive for pretty much everything, but I find that the Fast Fuse is really so much better for 3D projects!  It has a very strong hold that is perfect for holding Designer Series Paper in place when wrapped around the boxes.  It also provides great hold for the sentiment on the glimmer paper.  Due to the texture of the glimmer paper, regular snail just doesn’t cut it, but the Fast Fuse holds it on there perfectly!

I only was able to make FIVE of these, as I have three brand new packages of pizza boxes and I have NO IDEA where I put them!  Guess I know what I’m doing this weekend!   I need to make more of these before my next event!

I hope you enjoyed my project for today!  Thanks for stopping by!
