Peek-a-boo box and matching cards

Chocolate Easter bunnies are here! Yahoo! So do you nibble on their little ears first or start on the tail? I'm an ear gal, I leave the bunny wrapped in the foil so I don't get my fingers chocolaty while I am scrapping. ;)
These are some adorable peek-a-boo boxes, I originally saw a tutorial for them here on Splitcoast stampers. Than someone on the Cricut messageboards made a .cut file, so that is what I used today.

The sentiment is from CTMH B1324 Bunny love stamp set, and it is stamped in Chocolate ink. The bunny is new, and adorable and I love her. She is from A1112 A hop stamp set. I inked her up in Chocolate ink also, but then I did the rock-n-roll technique around her edges in Cocoa ink.

When you lift the outer lid of the box, this is the peek-a-boo portion. I punched this SU! shape from the middle of the 2nd lid since for some reason the .cut file did not cut the scallop square that showed on the design studio software. I have no idea what went wrong, but this was a quick and easy fix.

Here is a detail shot showing the second lid pulled up slightly. The box measures 2.5 x 2.5 x.1 inch, so its perfect for Ghirardelli chocolate squares. But I think it would also be cute with Easter M&M's or Kisses too.

The paper I used is from K & Co. Chocolate Neapolitan paper pack, and it was double sided. This is the back side. Cute huh? So from one 12 x 12 sheet I made two boxes and two 3.25 x 3.25 cards. I love that!!

Here is a detail shot of this box. You can see the slit along the front fold of the box. That is where the tab at the top of the lid slides into to keep the whole thing closed securely. Really ingenious.

Find inspiration everywhere! Go... Create something fun & fabulous. Enjoy!
