Daisy Pizza Box and Cards Gift Set

Hi Everyone,

Today I want to show you how to make a pizza style box with 4 cards and I'm going to showcase the new 2019-2021 in colours from Stampin'Up!.  These boxes of cards make great little gifts for teachers, coworkers, friends or to sell on your craft stall.  They are simple to make, give them a try and see for yourself.


For the box:

1 piece of card stock  6 3/8" x 11 3/4"
1 piece of  4" x 4" designer series paper to decorate
Scraps of card stock for the daisy
Scraps of whisper white for stamping
Multipurpose adhesive
Daisy Lane stamp set
Well Said stamp set
Daisy Punch
Classic Label Punch
1" circle punch
In colour faceted dots
Bone folder
Ink to match

For the cards:

4 pieces of card stock  8" x 4"
4 pieces of designer series paper 3 7/8" x 3 7/8"
Scraps of card stock for the daisies
Scraps of whisper white for the stamping


Take the large piece of card stock and put it in the scoreboard with the 6 3/8" side butting up to the top, score at 1", then turn 180 degrees and score at 1" on the other edge.

Turn the card stock with the long edge butting up to the top of the scoreboard and score at 1", 5 3/8", 6 3/8" and 10 3/4".

Fold and burnish all the score lines.

Cut tabs into all the squares as shown in the picture, decide which will be the top of the box and punch half a 1" circle as shown, this helps to open the box.

Before glueing the box together decorate the top of the box with the 3 3/4" square piece of dsp.

Adhere the tabs on the opposite end of the card stock inside the box to make the base, then adhere the middle two tabs to the inside. 

Put adhesive on the final two tabs and fold the box up and fit them around the box to make a better fit.  

Stamp two daisies on the scrap card and punch out with a daisy punch, adhere the two together arranging the top one so that there are no gaps between the petals.  Curl the edges of the petals with a bone folder and then adhere the daisy to the centre of the box lid with dimensionals.  Decorate the centre of the flower with a faceted gem.

Stamp the sentiment and punch out with the classic label punch and tuck underneath the petals of the flower and adhere with glue.


Score each piece of card stock in the middle at 4" and fold and burnish.  Cut out a piece of dsp which is 3 3/4" square for each card and adhere to the front of the card.

Stamp out two daisies for each card on the coloured card stock which matches the base of the card and then punch out with the daisy punch.  Adhere together as you did for the flower for the box lid. Stamp the sentiment on whisper white in matching ink and punch out with the Classic Label Punch.  Adhere the daisy to the centre of the card with the sentiment tucked underneath as shown.

I hope that you enjoy making this project.  I have chosen to showcase the new in colours and the new paper stack, you can of course use any colours and any designer series paper, endless possibilities, give it a try.

Happy crafting.

Pressed Petals Aperture Card

Hi Everyone,

Today I have made a very pretty card using the Pressed Petals designer series paper, it's beautiful paper and perfect for a special card or gift.


1 x 5 7/8" x 12 card stock for the card base (I have used so saffron)
1 x 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" card stock in a contrasting colour for the card front (I have used pear pizzazz)
1 x 5" x 5" gold foil card for the frame
1 x 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" whisper white for the inside of the card
1 x 5" x 5" Pressed Petals dsp (choose a nice piece with the image you want to display in the centre of the piece that you cut)
Scraps of white, gold foil and green for the sentiment and the leaves
18" of ribbon for decoration
2 circle dies to cut the aperture and the frame, I have used a 4 1/8" and a 4 3/4" die for this card
Die cutting machine
2" circle punch
2 1/4" circle punch
Leaf punch or leaf dies
Ink to match (I've used blushing bride on the inside and I have heat embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder)
Embossing powder
Embossing buddy
Heat tool
Versamark ink
Stamp set for the sentiment (I have used Floral Essence)
Snail/tear and tape
Glue dot


Cut the card base and fold and burnish at 6", this card will be a tent fold card.

Cut the contrasting card stock for the card front and then cut out the aperture using the smaller of the two dies.  Centre the die in the middle of the card front, measure around each side to get it as central as possible, put some washi tape or low tack tape on the die to keep it in place and cut it out with the die cutting machine. (see picture)   

While you have the die cutting machine out, cut the frame from the gold foil.  Place the smaller circle inside the larger and try and get the gap even all the way around.  Add some washi tape again to keep them in place and cut out (see picture).  This will give you a frame to go around the aperture on the card front.

If using dies for the leaves, cut these from green card at the same time or punch them out using the leaf punch.

Cut the dsp carefully choosing the image to be displayed and adhere to the back of the card front with the image showing through the aperture. Put the adhesive around the aperture rather than around the edge of the cut piece of dsp to make sure that the image is stuck in the circle and there are no gaps (see picture)

Adhere the frame around the image on the card front.

Measure a piece of ribbon around the top of the card front above the frame and fix on the back with some either snail or tear and tape, cut off the excess. Make a bow with the remaining piece and attach to the card front in the centre of the ribbon just above the frame (see picture). 

Stamp a sentiment and a flower on the whisper white piece and attach to the inside of the card base (I have used blushing bride).

For the sentiment on the front, I have heat embossed it in gold.  Rub over the piece of card stock with the embossing buddy to get rid of any fingerprints etc and then stamp your image with Versamark ink.  Sprinkle gold embossing powder over the image and then set it with the heat tool.  When it has cooled down, punch it out with a 2" circle punch.  Then punch out a 2 1/4" circle from the gold foil (I have used the piece that came out of the middle of the frame).  

Adhere the card front to the card base leaving a small border all the way around.

Adhere the sentiment to the centre of the gold foil circle and add dimensionals to the back.  Arrange the leaves around the sentiment and glue in place.  Adhere the sentiment to the front of the card at the bottom right.

I hope that you like this pretty card and give it a try.

Happy crafting.
