Box and Pattern

Make your own Pizza Box! We made this box at my last class.

I love making this box. If you have been to any of my classes recently you know how much I love this box and the cards that accompany it. I also love my blog because now I get to share this pattern with all of you.


8 x 12 piece of paper

Score on the long side at 1", 5 1/2", 6 1/2", & 11"

Turn and score at 1" &  7"

Now cut as the picture indicates on the vertical score line, up to the horizontal score line

Fold on the score line and push in the tads and adhere adhesive to them. I did not adhere the bottom of the box in this picture so you could see how it tucks in. Hint: Use sticky strip adhesive for this project. A much stronger bond. Hint: I also used a 3/4" punch to punch a partial circle in the middle of the lid for ease of opening. Plus it gives a nice professional look.

There you have it the Pizza Box. Very simple and uses only one sheet of 12x12 paper. Gotta love that!

Here are the cards we made to go inside the box. Some of the ideas I received from other demonstrators. I can not give them credit for their work because no names where given.

Thanks, Sue
