This box is a 7x7 pizza box. I made the Album out of chipboard it measures 6x6. The products were purchased at www.just4funcrafts.com and the instructions i wrote up are below. Its not as hard as it looks. Box takes about 20 minutes to do...the labor is in the details of the album. Thank you Lois for Posting the rest of the box for me:cool: If you want to see all the pages of the box you can see it in www.just4funcrafts.com gallery. Thanks for looking
How to alter a pizza box:
1. Pizza box
2. razor blade
3. Scotch Quick-dry Tacky adhesive or other great adhesive
5. 2 + pieces of Patterned Paper
6. 2+ pieces of cardstock
7. 5 pieces of 6x6 chipboard
8. embellishments including ribbons
The boxes come flat and sometimes will be folded in half for
shipping…but not assembled. (The metal corners for the 6x6 album
will be added to the products sold on our web site by next week.)
1: lay box flat…glue 2 sheets of patterned paper on one side of box, one butted up to the other, then you cut around the perimeter of the flat box…make sure you put a slice in where the flaps are, and the circles too…you will see what I mean when you have your pizza box in front of you. You can even put patterned paper on the inside of the lid and the inside bottom of box while flat before you fold it up.
2: Cut a piece of ribbon or twill about 1 yard (it will be a bit shorter then that)…place it centered on what will be the front of the box with a tiny adhesive. Poke a few brads through the twill/ribbon and cardboard in front to secure them together now, just in the front…because once its folded its too thick to do later.
3: You will now fold your box…then you can continue around the edges with the twill/ribbon to finish that part, once again securing with brads.
The rest is just adding all the embellishments and ribbon to decorate the outside of the box.
I made the album out of chipboard.
1: Just cut and cover the 6x6 chipboard with paper, and embellish it. Add personality by using pockets, tags, do-dads, tabs, ribbon and such.
2: Punch a few holes in the chipboard where the “binding” will be, and run ribbon through to hold all the pages together.
That’s it… you now have an album in a altered pizza box.
