I then inked and painted a chipboard piece to put my sentiment on. Feel free to just ink or to leave plain. Set aside to let dry.

OK, I made a bit of a hash of that as the card was dark and I didn't get them as even as I'd like. But go ahead now, please.

I used a plain paper for mine Kathy.. it made them a bit easier to fold.

Adhere your circles to the PP and run a piece of tape directly across the top from one side to the other. Run a piece of ribbon across this:

Now pop a sentiment onto your chipboard (You could use a piece of CS if you don’t have chipboard the right shape). A rectangle with curved edges would work beautifully.
Adhere your chipboard across the centre of your folded circles and ribbon. Add a flower or two and perhaps a butterfly and you are ready to stick it onto your pizza box, pop some cards inside and have a super easy but very personal gift to give.

Hmm.. I forgot to take a photo after I added three buttons to the bottom left hand corner. You can see them floating around on the cutting mat waiting to be added.

Thanks Kathy & Annie Very Happy

OK, I'm up to this but have hit a brick wall. I'll finish this in the morning, as it's looking great.

It is a great project for a gift - will definitely be making a couple - might use them for gifts for the girls at work.

All done. Smile Thanks so much Sue-Maree.

A couple of tips.....

On Jibii's advice last week, I have been using a butter knife for scoring, rather than my CM tool that Sue-Maree is using in her photo, and have found it works better (maybe because the point on my tool is so very, very worn. Wink )

Secondly, in desperation, I cut five circles, folded the first one exactly as I wanted it, cut off the folds and used it as a template to get the four circles as close to evenly folded as I could. Whether it was that, or the better light and less exhausted brain, but they worked so much better this morning. Smile

I finished mine too - I wasn't happy with the evenness of my circles so ended up doing exactly as Kathy said. I think I will make at least one more of these before christmas. Thanks Sue-Maree!
