Peek-a-boo Box

These little peek-a-boo boxes are so cute and fun to make! This was my project from our recent shoebox swap. I found the directions by Qbee on splitcoast here. I decided to use the circle and scallop punch for my peek-a-boo window.



I started with a 9 1/2" x 4" piece of wild wasabi and scored vertically at 1" and 3". Then I scored horizontally at 1", 3", 4", 6", 7" and 9". I punched a 1 1/4" circle out of purely pomegranate cardstock and then centered the scallop punch over the hole and punched out the scallop frame. Next, I stamped the swirl from Priceless all over the wild wasabi and put the box together. I placed a window sheet behind the peek-a-boo circle to keep some yummy peppermint patties inside.
