In this tutorial, you will learn how to use your Brother ScanNCut to decorate mini pizza boxes by Stampin’ Up! The mini pizza box is great for gifts and for craft fairs. It is easy and fun to decorate. Using your ScanNCut, you can create precise pieces for decorating and beautiful layered embellishments. We are using the CM350 Scan and Cut or the ScanNCut 2 for this tutorial. You can follow along with whichever model of ScanNCut you have. The skills you will learn in this tutorial are how to cut, layer and color stamped images, how to use built in patterns and shapes and how to save and retrieve your cutting file so that you can use your template over and over again. The products featured in this tutorial are the Tags in Bloom stamp set and the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper by Stampin’ Up! Both of the featured products are FREE items you can earn with your purchases during our Sale-A-Bration 2020 promotion which ends on March 31, 2020.
First, we stamped the large stamp from the Tags in Bloom stamp in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White Cardstock. Then, we stamped the sentiments from the Tags in Bloom stamp set using Old Olive ink. Then, we used Direct Cut to scan and cut the images out. Without removing the mat, we removed the Whisper White from the mat and replaced it with the Golden Honey dsp and cut out the shapes again, this time with a larger outline distance. Then, we colored the flowers in the stamped image using the Lovely Lipstick, Old Olive, and Daffodil Delight Blends. Note: I accidentally used the Light Mossy Meadow instead of the Light Old Olive as recommended. It still worked fine but came out darker than I expected.
Next, we used built in patterns to create the shapes to cut out using the Golden Honey dsp. You learned how to save and retrieve the template for the mini pizza box so that you can use it again and again. Cut out several pieces of dsp using the template and then use alternate patterns for decorating the mini pizza boxes and for wrapping the candy. I attached the larger square to the top and the two smaller squares to the insides using rolling adhesive. Four rectangles are for adhering to the sides of the mini pizza box. The other shapes we cut out are for wrapping Hershey Nuggets and Hershey Miniatures. Be sure to use rolling adhesive and not liquid glue when wrapping the candy. I punched out the sentiments for the inside of the mini pizza boxes using the Label me Fancy and Label me Lovely punches.
