A “pizza box”!!! lol Here’s how to make it on SCS, HERE. At first I couldn’t think of what to put inside but then it hit me that 4×4 gift cards and envelopes would be great in there! I did make my box larger than the pattern on SCS. Mine is 4.5 x 4.5 finished and I used a 6.5 x 12 piece of double sided pattern paper from the Butterfly Garden by Pink Paislee collection. I also used the 6×6 matching pad for “parts”.
Four gift cards and envelopes… I used my MS scoreboard envelope maker… LOVE that thing! CC Designs rubber stamps… links below.
Close up of how I colored the birdhouse! I wanted it to look really rustic…eek! it does! lol I used Distress ink pads and Ranger Cut ‘n Dry nibs and just colored it in… quite easy… vintage photo, walnut stain, pumice stone, weathered wood, aged mahogany, peeled paint, pine needle, mustard seed…I had FUN! I used a crackle stamp from Magenta on a couple of the stamped images and on the Swirly Butterfly die cut.
I thought it needed an easier way to get it open, so I got out a circle punch and punched in a bit so it’s real easy to get open now. *here’s a tip for you though* Punch the circle before you tape/glue it into the box shape! *’nother tip* STAMP before you tape/glue it into the box!!! YEP, rather tricky stamping on a flimsy box!
