My take on the Pizza box

Sometimes inspiration comes at the strangest times-like when you are sitting around the table eating pizza and drinking a glass of wine. I'm looking at this pizza box thinking "I could do better than that" and here's what I came up with. I'm still playing with the dimensions but the fun thing is this box was made with a 6x12 sheet of paper which means 2 boxes per 12x12 paper sheet.
For this box I took my 6 x 12 and scored around each side 1". Then I scored at 5 and 6 inches. I then cut the flaps stopping at the 1" score line. Fold in, adhere the 1" flaps and you are set to go.
I added the enhancements after scoring but before folding the box, making it much easier to stamp and glue.
I'm also working on some videos trying to get my website (and blog) a little more exciting. Be sure to check back for the video later this week.

Peyton's page

I just finished my SDU certification to teach and I thought I'd apply some of the principals that I learned to my new page. I don't journal near enough so I added some journaling. I used the rule of 3 in triangle placement.
I love that I got to use the pink and purple paper. Having 3 boys doesn't lend itself to too many pink pages. I pulled out the cricut and cut the flowers using the George & Basic shapes.
