Sky 3x3 Thank You Card Set and Pizza Box






A huge shout out to Kim Burmeister (former CTMH Consultant, now an SU Demo) for inspiring this 3x3 card set and pizza box!  She inspired me by her gorgeous black and white set you can view HERE.

I've been wanting to make some 3x3 thank you's for awhile and love how these turned out.  Simple, yet classic.  Awesome.

You can watch Kim's video on her Ustream channel to see how she created it.  Although I tried to watch it today and I couldn't find it.  Hopefully it will be back up soon.

But in the meantime, if you are looking for the pizza box instructions, you can find them on my Boo - Halloween Pizza Boxed Set post from last year HERE.

For the box band, I cut a piece of White Daisy CS at 1 1/4" x 10" and scored it at 3 1/2", 4 5/8", 8 1/8", and 9 1/4".

For the Magnifique patterned B&T, I trimmed it to 1 3/4" x 3" and the Sky CS trim I cut at 3/4" x 3" and then used a scallop edge punch.  The ribbon length was 10" for each card, as I wrapped it around the inside and tied the ends at the front.  I believe the ribbon length to wrap around the box was also 10".  I also used a white gel pen to make the dots in the flower centers of the patterned paper stand out more. 

Hope I've passed on some inspiration to you!

Happy creating!  :)

Oh my word! This set is BEAUTIFUL! I saw Kim's B&W set too and marked it as something I wanted to lift, but I must say, your set is amazing! I think I might just have to make both sets! *Ü*
