PDE Linky Party #153 - Anything Goes

Happy Friday Crafters,

Today starts a new PDE Linky Party Challenge    

This week it's to make any project.  Can be whatever creation you make.

For those of you that know me or have followed my Facebook and Blog the past year or so, you know that every Christmas I try to come up with something creative to give money to my nieces, nephews and godchildren.   So today for the "Anything Goes" challenge I'm sharing with you what I made for them this year.   My nieces and nephews really got a kick out of them.   My godchildren won't get them until tomorrow so I'm hoping they don't see this blog post. :)

This year I decided make pizza out of money for their gift.   

Saw this idea on Pinterest but of course I had to make my own pizza box and add my own personal touch to them.   

This is the picture I saw on Pinterest that gave me the inspiration for my Christmas gift idea. 

 These are the front of my pizza boxes.

When they opened it, this is what they saw.

I had to fold the money to look like pizza slices with pizza crust and used a few pennies for pepperoni toppings.

A big thank you to my hubby for folding a majority of these bills for eleven pizza boxes.  

Pizza Box Recipe:
  • Pizza Box from Silhouette Design Store - Design ID # 61145
  • Pizza Box was printed with snowflake digi paper from Little Scraps of Heaven Cozy Sweater Penguin digi kit
  • Pattern Paper used for half circles are from the Prettygrafik PS643 Ginger Snap digital paper pack. 
  • Plaid paper behind half circles is from the Prettygrafik PS524 Bake Sale Treats digital paper pack. 
  • Boy & Girl Peeking Elves are from Miss Kate Cuttables.   I used the jpg and used my Silhouette Cameo's print and cut feature. 
    • Click HERE for Boy Elf.   
    • Click HERE for Girl Elf. 
  • The tag under their hand is from the Silhouette Design Store - Design ID #52794.   
    • I used a digi paper to fill in the tag and then added the "Pannell Christmas Pizza, Made with Fresh Dough" and once again used the Silhouette Cameo's print and cut feature.  
Thanks for stopping by.  
I hope you liked my take on the pizza box money gift idea.  
Feel free to use this idea to create your own money pizza box.  If you do, I would appreciate it if you would mention my blog as your inspiration.   Thank you.

Hope you join our PDE Linky Party for week's "Anything Goes" Challenge.

Can't wait to see your creations.
