Red Nose pirate box

When I saw the cute little pirate red nose that's around for Comic Relief this year, it immediately made me think about our Beware Pirates set and so I decided to make a little box to gift the red nose with.

Stamp set: Beware Pirates
Cardstock: Basic Black, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Real Red
Punch: 1" Circle

The box is a variation of the Mini Pizza box (instructions can be found here). My version is 25.5cm x 15cm cut from Basic Black card and scored at 4.5cm in from every edge and then again at 10.5cm inwards from each short edge. I find it's easier to decorate the box before you glue it together. The side panels are 5.5cm x 3cm and stamped with the Arrrrr! sentiment in Basic Black. These A square of 5.4cm Whisper White was stamped with the Skull and Cross Bones in Real Red. This was matted onto a 5.8cm square of Real Red card and popped up on dimensionals on the box lid. A semi-circle opening tab was punched from the front of the box with the 1" Circle. Finally it was glued together and the Red Nose popped inside.

Thanks for stopping by.
