Sweets for my Sweet

I saw these cute pizza boxes on someone's blog a while ago, and I'd been wanting to try them ever since. Well, of course, all I did was think about making them...until I saw this week's technique challenge on Splitcoast. Plus, caardvarks is having challenge to use scoring in your project, so this box fit the bill.
I was already planning on making a little treat container for my hubby since 1. he always complains that I make all kinds of stuff but nothing for him and 2. our anniversary is coming up, and I need a cheap gift.
So I combined the pizza box technique with Beate's inspiration challenge, since the colors in the inspiration piece seemed masculine to me. I used some dp that Pauline sent me over the weekend, along with some rhinestone brads I thought were similar to Pacific Point. I filled the box with dark chocolate peppermint patties (which my hubby LOVES). Mmm...
Stamps: Starlight Starbright Remixed (Verve)
Paper: Pacific Point, Riding Hood Red, dp (unknown)
Ink: Night of Navy
Accessories: star punch, dimensionals, ribbon (Dollar Tree), brads (Oriental Trading Co.), York Peppermint Patties

It's so funny because I was looking for a masculine paper to wrap a present, and I used this same paper! Yours is cool :o)
