Not a Card

I think I am going to manage it!!! My second post that is. It is a mini pizza box and I followed the tutorial on Split Coast Stampers which you can find here it is dead easy. I made it to hold a pressy which you can see here

and here, I found the bag in Tesco in both gold and silver - perfect for jewellry.

  The images are firstly a freebie from The Rusty Pickles Digital Delights Shop which you can find here. I teamed it up with a Magnolia image which you can find here - hopefully they will get some more!!! Now I have recently become the proud owner of a set of the new Promarkers from Letraset - whoopeeeeeeee (thank you Clare AKA Littlebear). I thought I should watch a few tutorials but I got bored - well I am just too impatient so I just had a go. I am so pleased with how they turned out - so I have used my Promarkers on a digi and a stamp. Lucky really because the challenge at Passion for Promarkers is a must do with some absolutely fabulous prizes and it runs until 5th January 2010 - Anything but a card with a Christmas or New Year theme.

I have printed the bauble image three times in different sizes and coloured them up plus added a bit of gold glitter here and there!

I then attached them with some difficulty to the top of the box with some gold thread to hang them by.

Then I added the NOEL image, coloured with Promarkers and there is a little glitter on the Holly berries. Simple but effective I thought.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:-

Three Clovers Design - Gifts,

Ildi Co Challenges - Black and Bright,

Rainbow Lady's Challenge - Christmas carol plus a black base card (My first pizza bow - "The first Noel"),

Stampin' for the Weekend - Red, Green and Gold,

Magnolia Down Under - Bedazzled,

Bee Crafty Challenge - Christmas, digi but not a card.

Papercutz Challenge - Christmas digi or stamp, and

Stamp Something - Glitzy.

As ever I would love to hear your thoughts, they mean a lot to me.

I have taught my stampers club how to make these mini Pizza boxes before. They are so adorable and I really think that makes this all the more impressive because you got all of this on a small surface and it is so cute!!!

Way to Go Ali!!!
