The Gift

Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge: create something that has a gift somewhere on it -- inspired by the following verse: “After coming into the house they saw the Child with Mary His mother; and they fell to the ground and worshiped Him. Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.” Matthew 2:11. I am showing this off as a Christmas Gift for the C.R.A.F.T. challenge too! -- and for more challenge fun, go look at the Verve blog for a link to instructions for this mini-pizza box.


Now who doesn't like pizza? And, who doesn't like a little something delivered in a pizza box? So, not only is there a gift on the outside, inside are tiny little candy canes. I think my son, Dain, however, would prefer a gift card inside the mini-pizza box, and a real life-sized pizza in a real pizza box!




Stuff I used:
Stamps: PSX, Sizzix, silk flowers, DCWV for pizza box,
Polymark Fabric Paint - Crystal Glitter, rickrack from my sewing drawer, ribbons from stash.
