Paper Maniac Inspirations ~ Last Minute Teacher Gifts

Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope this post finds you happy and healthy. I plan on spending the day wrapping presents, I am determined to get them all (or at least the kids) before their vacation starts on Friday!

Now that my son has moved up to middle school and has seven teachers, I needed to find a quick and easy gift to make by Friday. So I made these "mini" pizza boxes and filled them with Ghiradelli Peppermint Bark. These pizza boxes are smaller than the regular version and will perfectly hold 3 Ghiradelli candy bars.

Here are the measurements and directions:

Piece of Cardstock or Patterned Paper: 4 1/4" x 7 1/2"

Score Long Side: 1", 3 1/4", 4 1/4", 6 1/2"

Score Short Side: 1" from each side

Use a bone folder and fold at all score lines, then cut scores (four per side) on the long sides just to where the score lines intersect. Fold it all up and use double-sided sticky tape to put it all together!

For my sentiments I used the JustRite Something Sweet Borders and Centers. Be sure and head over to the Paper Maniac Blog for daily inspiration for the holidays. The DT has been coming up with some amazing creations that you will not want to miss!

Make sure you take advantage of the great sales in the the store this week plus 15% off anything and everything you need, including items already on sale. The only exception is the Copic Coloring Club Kits which are already at the lowest price possible (coupon code MERRY15)

Thanks for stopping by,
