Are you ready? This is just the cutest box EVER (well, in my opinion anyways – LOL!). I must say that I am so pleased with how this turned out. This box was inspired by a card I saw on pg. 92 of the March 2008 Papercrafts magazine called an Easter Surprise Card. Since my theme for this tutorial blitz is Easter Treat Boxes and all the supplies I am using are current Stampin’ Up!, I put on my thinking cap and tried to figure out a way to incorporate the idea in a box format. The challenge of this box was that I wanted to use my new favourite Easter stamp set called A Good Egg, so I had to design a box that was big enough. This is what I came up with. A peek-a-boo gable box. So what’s the surprise? Check out the picture below.
Isn’t the little chick sweet just peeking out from inside the egg? I have to warn you though, if you make this box, make if for someone you really like because as it’s fairly big (3 1/4" wide x 5" high -not including the top piece – x 1 1/2" deep) and holds A LOT of treats.
Anyways, I’ve created a step-by-step tutorial so that you too can make this box and template which you can download HERE, but please remember it is a visual template only – it is NOT meant to printed out onto CS otherwise the dimensions will be all wrong.
I hope you enjoy this project – be sure to visit again tomorrow. I’ll be posting another great project PLUS I’ll be introducing you to this week’s Featured Stampin’ Up! Artist.
