A little more Christmas in July


When I think of Christmas, thinking of treats isn't far behind! A Peek-a-Boo box filled with goodies makes a lovely gift for co-workers, neighbors and acquaintances.
  • 3-D items (especially treat boxes!) need a little extra help to hold up to the extra wear and tear they encounter. Sticky strip is just the adhesive for the job! Once you adhere with sticky strip, it is going to stay like that forever.
  • To get a multi-color stamped image, use markers to color directly on the stamp before stamping on your paper. Helpful Hint: For this treat box, I inked the entire image in Chocolate Chip and then used a blender pen to take up the ink from "Merry" and the star. Next, I colored with my Real Red marker directly on the stamp.
  • Window sheets are a fun way to showcase what's inside. Just adhere using a mini-glue dot in each corner.
  • All of Stampin' Up!'s Designer Series Papers (DSP) are two-sided, so it is perfect for a fun surprise on the inside of a treat box like this. I used the "Merry Moments" DSP shown here (you can click on the image to get a close-up view):

Hi Heather! I love the thought of a peek a boo box. I'm glad you provided a tutorial also because I'm sure I'll be making a few for Christmas.

Christmas is the celebration time and most of us think to spend time together enjoy their time. This card is also very nice in colors and the shape wise as well.
