Thinking outside the card

Good Sunday morning, my cyber friends!!! It's that day of the week again..... time for another High Hopes challenge!! This week's challenge is to think outside the card. Meaning, to make anything other than a card. I made a box. Which is funny....thinking outside the card....thinking outside the box.....

ANYWAY...........here is what I came up with!!





I've been wanting to make a pizza box for some time now, & figured this was the perfect time to try it!! Not only does it work for the challenge, but I needed a little giftie for someone & this will be perfect!! It will hold some chocolate, & a gift card. I used the Large Open Flower from the new release. I colored it with Prismas & gamsol, then used Twinkling H2O's on top of that for lots of shimmer. I cut it out & curled the edges a bit to make it 3D. The papers are SU's Riding Hood Red, So Saffron, & Cosmo Cricket Honey Pie Ella. Added some olive organdy ribbon.....heated the ends a bit so they'd curl....& voila.....a cute little pizza box! The instructions for making this box can be found HERE ON SCS.





I used my Martha doily lace border punch on another scrap to put around the sides......





.....and added some fun raffia curls for the inside. I added the chocolate....but being behind as I always am, I haven't bought that gift card yet!!! It's next on my list.....really....

I hope you'll pop on over to the High Hopes blog to see what the other Divas created. Lots of fun projects over there that I know you'll love!!! If you join along, you'll have a chance at winning a couple of HH goodies for your very own!!

Thanks so much to everyone for your comments & emails about my hubby. He had the endoscopy yesterday, & we have to wait 2 weeks to get the results. They took out a lot of fatty tissue & other stuff which went off to the lab. I'm sure everything will come back just fine, but thanks for your good thoughts!!

Thank you for visiting, & I hope you all have a fabulous week!!
