Design Your Own Pizza Box for Any Size Card
In July when I went to the Stampin' Up! Convention I participated in a “card” Trade with my Stampin Pretty Pals. The reason I say “card” is that I decided to do a set of gift cards with the accompanying “pizza” box to store them in. When I told my friends that I didn't use a pattern and that I just figured out the measurements, they were amazed. I was surprised I didn't use a pattern. I probably would have if I had known one was available.
Over the next three consecutive Sundays I will be posting the DYO Pizza Box Trilogy which will guide you through the creation of your own custom pizza box.
Join my newsletter and receive the step by step directionsfor the 3'' x 3'' card size pizza box in my November issue.
The formula for a pizza box is basically:
- Determine the card length (longest side of your card) and card width (shortest side of your card) and add 1/4" to each measurement. These measurements become the new card width and card length for the formula below.
- Determine the depth of the box
- Box depth + card length + box depth = cardstock width
- Box depth + card width + box depth + card width + box depth = card stock length
For those of you who would like to create pizza boxes for Note Cards on page 171 of the Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog, here are the measurements you'll need. They can all be made from a standard 8 1/2” x 11“ piece of card stock. All measurements assume a 3/4” depth.
