Holiday Wishes & Seasons Greetings

I get the opportunity to showcase one of my favorite boxes from Creative Cuts & More - they are called Peek A View boxes and are exclusive from CC&M - that's because the center/midsection of the box is acetate and the recipient gets a little glimpse of what's inside. With these CC&M die cuts, cut and scored all you have to do is use a little creativity and some Killer Red Tacky Tape with whatever decoration and embellishments you have on hand.

Both use “Peek a View” die cut boxes from Creative Cuts & More, decorated with two of my favorite OCL Holiday Releases “Tag You’re It” and “Parka Penguins”. The peek a view box has an acetate middle so the recipient can get a little glimpse of the treats stuffed inside. Both boxes have a white and red theme going on – including the peppermint melt candies stuffed inside. A little coloring with COPICS, some white Flower Soft and “Ice Crystal” Crafty Sparkles glitter really add some dimensionals/pop dots and bling! The first box also uses a couple of border strips using Threading Water border punch. The second box lid and bottom were run through a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Add some satin ribbon and pom-pom ribbon, a couple of glittered snowflakes, and tags attached to the front finish the projects. It’s real easy peasy to access the goodies stuffed inside – just lift/slide up the top….. Fun huh? Keep in mind that the “Tag You’re It” is a year round set – the sentiments range from Holiday Wishes and Seasons Greetings to Happy Birthday, Sealed with Kisses (that will be a fun one for Valentines or just because), playing Tag You’re It, and Celebrate!!!, With Love, Baked with Love. I hope you’ve enjoyed the samples and ideas for using this versatile set. Same goes for these super cute and easy Peek a View boxes.

Enjoy and Create, Lila
