Window Treat Boxes

I thought I would try something different other then the everyday card.  It's not too often I lean away from cards because I love them so much, however I decided as a designer for my LSS I would step it up a notch.  (Thanks Cheri!!!)  These are Window Treat Boxes and you can find the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and it's EASY!!  It was faster then making a card!! 

For the pink Window Treat Box my supplies are: Bittersweet Basic Grey paper, Kaisercraft pearls, hearts Spellbinders (for tag on top), Petaloo Mulberry Street, EK success leaf punch, Prima flowers and a Doodlebug brad in the center of the green flower.  All my supplies were purchased from my LSS, Creative Accents.  For my red/orange Window Treat Box my supplies are Cosmo Cricket Twist & Shout line, misc ribbon and SU button and Circle Cookie Cutter dies (2 for small circles under sprockets).  I used the Creative Memories cutting system for the ovals and border scissors for the edge around the top of the boxes.  You can use punches as well. 

The tutorial doesn't have a piece of clear acetate in the window but I wanted it to keep all my jellybeans in.  I just cut a piece that fit between the front layer and my cardstock and glued it in thereThese were fun!
