Q-bee's Peek-a-boo Boxes

I am totally hooked on making these cute little treat boxes. You can download the template here Q-bee's Box. To further confess, I am co-dependent on Dashing Double-Sided Designer Series Paper and the Season of Joy Stamp Set, so I made this card & Q'Bee's Peek-a-boo boxes to match. I hope to make enough of these to put out on my co-workers' desks come Christmas Friday, which is the Friday before Christmas which is on a Tuesday ;-)
Any-hoo, for the card, I stamped the word collage image from Season of Joy in Real Red and mounted it on Real Red Cardstock. The base card is Real Red Cardstock layered with River Rock and Dashing which is outlined with the faux stitch stamp from All In A Row using Old Olive classic ink. I set a jumbo eyelet using my Crop-A-Dile through which I pulled Old Olive 5/8 inch grosgrain ribbon which is then wrapped around the side of the card and adhered with a glue dot. I simply tied a knot and tacked it down with a glue dot instead of fighting to tie & set the bow evenly. The Peek-a-boo boxes are also decorated with Dashing paper. The color blocking dimensions are easy to remember. The lid paper measures 1-3/4 inches x 1-3/4 inches and the sides measure 1-3/4 inches by 3/4 inches. The pointsettia is stamped in Real Red using the flower stamp from, again, Season of Joy. It is embellished with 3 gold brads and adhered with a dimensional. The other box is topped with the Dec 25th circle stamp from Perfect Presentation layered on Real Red Cardstock and then again on Old Olive punched using the Designer Label punch and embellished using gold brads. I don't know if you can really see to peek inside my Peek-a-boo box, but the best part IS inside-Hershey Kisses wrapped in holiday foil. I hope you try this fun project yourself. Thanks for looking, EdieB
