Uses for Pizza Boxes

My sister's family and mine have to order 4 to 6 pizzas every time we want pizza to feed our large families, we would like to know if anyone has any ideas on what we can do with the pizza boxes (besides throw them away)? We welcome any ideas you may have. Thanks

My son and I eat a lot of pizza. I use the boxes at school for art projects. Perhaps you could donate yours to a school for this. We use them for creating sculptures instead of more expensive foam core. I have also used them as a base for collage. Cut off the lid and the base (and lid as well for another kid) becomes an instant frame for the collage. The kids can decorate the edges as well. They could also be given to the students and just have them use the box as a base for a piece of artwork -- their own creation. If you are eating a lot of pizza, I doubt that you can use up all the boxes on your own.

I have used them to make stepping stones. Tape the corners to make them stronger. I laid tile pieces to make a pattern or picture. Just be sure to have the bottoms of the tile facing you so the pretty side will be on the top of the stepping stone when you are finished. And if you write anything, write it backwards. Then mix up your own cement and pour into the box. Wait a day or 2 and tear off the box. Will take a few more days to completely dry.

I found a great idea for cheap decorating. I took a few and taped them shut, then covered them with fabric and hung them on the wall. They look like the expensive wall hangings from Pottery Barn, which are fabric covered canvas, but this works just as well! :)

California Pizza Kitchen uses pizza boxes as "canvases" for their displayed artwork. Maybe a local preschool could use them for an art project. You can also shred them somewhat and use them for composting (or see if a local school has an organic garden project)

I am a rubber stamper and I always had a problem with storage. I now reuse the pizza boxes to put the stamps in, label the outside of the box and stack them up.

I use them in the garden, opened up, as weed blocks in pathways, then cover them with leaves or pine straw.

The recycling centers might take the top part if food hasn't touched it.

They are great for target practice, rock throwing or toy arrows or whatever! To mark golf distances, put one with a rock in the base and the distance in big numbers on it, and from the tee you can see how far was your drive shot. They also work to hold the different sections of your tax materials while you work at getting it all done.

Hi Christy,

I have some boxes too and I have 3 grown sons so I am going to make pizza placemats and coasters and give them to the boys and familys as one of their Christmas gifts...I don't have a pattern yet but will either make them out of material or crocheted.. I might even put some pizza coupons in the boxes with the placemats.....Have fun.....dameemag from Michigan

I too was laid up in bed and made rubber stamps out of mine for kid projects.

I'm thinking of using one for my church's next bake sale. I make fudge. I was thinking of lining the pizza box with alumininum foil, then lining it with wax paper & pouring my fudge straight from the stovetop pan into the pizza box. Chill & letting the church members cut the fudge in the sizes they choose for the sale. The box is disposable and no dish to have to wash or locate upon time to go home.
