Boo... Halloween pizza box with 3x3 cards

Aren't 3x3 cards just so adorable? I love making them. I came across the Pizza Box template on Dawn's blog">. And I adjusted the size to 5 1/2" x 10" to be able to fit the envelopes in with the cards. (Dawn's measurements were 5 1/4" x 9 1/2".)

Cardstock: 5 1/2" x 10"
My scoring: on 5 1/2" side: 1" in from both sides; on 10" side: 1", 4 1/2", 5 1/2", and 9".
Fishished box size = 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" x 1".

I also found an awesome video tutorial on how to make the ribbon handle using a binder clip, on Lauren's blog.

I have a purpose for this gifty, but I don't want to give it away in case the viewer(s) happen to look at my blog...

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted): Boo-tiful, Happy Haunting, and Intrinsic Background stamp sets; Black, Olive and Smokey Plum cardstock; Enchanted B&T; Black and Autumn Terracotta inks; White gel pen (Uniball Signo); Black Journaling pen (SU); White pencil crayon (Prisma Premier); Autumn Terracotta buttons, Black waxy flax, Black floss, Olive grossgrain, Silver brads, Black mini brads, Clear embossing powder; Picket fence punch (MS), Word Window punch (SU), 1 3/4" circle punch (EK Success), 2" circle punch (Fiskars), small hole punch (Fiskars); Binder clip sm. and foam tape (other).

Super cute little 3x3 cards - they are adorable.

And the idea to use the binder clips as handles is just so creative! Thanks so much for sharing the link to the tutorial.

I don't know how you find these incredible ideas!! But I am so happy that you do and that you share the links. I have been making pizza box sets (3 1/2X5) and can't wait to add these darling handles to the next one.
