Uses for Pizza Boxes


I have a bunch of smaller sized pizza boxes and don't know what to do with them. They are plain white. Any ideas?

Do you sew?

Make a fabric pizza! Cut 2 circle pieces of off-white fabric and 1 of quilt batting. Sew together and flip. Cut smaller felt circle for sauce/ cheese. Cut out toppings from felt: green strips (peppers), red circles (pepperoni), any toppings you like! Great gift for kids.

I was thinking they would make great items for putting children's artwork in (depending on there sizes). Then you can store them by writing the year on the front and piling them up. (04/09/2007)

If there are new, never been used, I have several uses for them, that I have done. I give away a lot of cookies, and have found that new pizza boxes work as a good container to give the cookies away in, and nothing has to be returned. I do make sure to cover the bottom of the inside of the box with plastic wrap or foil so the cardboard doesn't dry out the cookies. I also make sure to cover the top of the cookies too, for the same reason, before I close the box.
I have also used pizza boxes for eBay packaging. Or cover the lid with the chalkboard contact paper and put chalk and erasers on the inside. Or decorate the top to resemble a checkerboard, and store the checkers inside. Or they can be used for desks for travel or for someone recuperating in bed... pens, paper, crayons, etc stored inside. Same thing can be done for a craft project. Hope this helps! (04/09/2007)

I have a great idea that I used a few years ago when I was laid up in bed. I cut the edges off and made book markers out of them! Then I took the rest and also used craft foam and I made my own homemade rubber stamps. I cut squares and taped several of them together and made my shapes out of craft foam and glued them on. I still have them around here somewhere. It was great to use making my own gift tags at xmas. (04/09/2007)

Make small solar ovens. There is information about this on the web. Just do a search for "solar oven", or go to a PBS website and search the show Zoom for directions. They are easy to make, work well on a sunny day, and a lot of fun for children to make and use.

Or you could donate them to a preschool or Kindergarten. They would probably love to have them. (04/09/2007)

Use them to sort Scrap booking papers. Mark them each on the outside or use a label so you know what is inside and can get what you need without having to search. (04/09/2007)

You can make a unique shower gift be it baby or wedding. My friend at work will be having her baby shower soon (we both work at a pizza shop). I plan to do a diaper pizza cake. Use small items like diapers, wash cloths, t-shirts, etc and fold them in pizza slice shape. Find a bunch of sample size items for diaper bag and tie up with pretty ribbon. The possibilities are endless and the results will be beautiful. Go to your local pizza shop and ask about a box. Most will just give you one.

You can use pizza boxes as forms to pour in cement to make garden paving stones. Add odd bits of jewelry or those flat marbles that you can get in bags at the Dollar Tree, or anything decorative. You can write anything on the cement or embed shells etc... (04/12/2007)

Make a cookie pizza out of chocolate chip cookie dough or brownie batter (bake in a pizza pan for the correct size), decorate the top with icing, coconut, and/or candies. Put it in the box and decorate the top with a computer made label for birthday gifts. "XXXX's Pizzeria -- A Taste 'Yule' Love" would be good for Christmas. Use your imagination. (06/11/2007)
