Non chocolate Easter treats..

I know what your all saying, non chocolate treats? where's the fun in them.
Believe it or not some people dont like chocolate ?????
I know I'm definately not one of them (as she pops another Thorntons continental in her mouth.)
Anyway, I've been asked to make some little gifts for the non-chocoholics among us.
Here's what I made....What do you think?

They are little peek a boo treat boxes.
I got the instructions from a Splitcoast Stampers Tutorial

But instead of filling with sweet treats, I filled with decorated tealight candles.
I had to adjust the sizing and scoring from the tutorial, to fit them in.
My card was cut to 4 1/2 inches x 12 inches and scored to a depth of 3/4 inch.
If anyone wants the exact measurements, etc, just let me know and I'll do a quick tutorial.

I used nice bright springy colours and decorated this one with a butterfly, cut with Spellbinder dies.

This is the peek a boo bit, under the top lid is an acetate covered scallop circle, so that you can see whats inside.

I decorated these tealights with butterflies to match.

These two are decorated with punched flowers atop layered Nesties

I used patterned card for these, so didnt decorate inside.

In one I decorated the tealights with flowers,

coloured with Promarkers and glitter pens.

And the second with cute little birdies.

I enjoyed making these, I hope they sell well tomorrow, then I can make more.
Thanks for looking
I'll catch up with you all soon and let you know how they went.

I wouldn't ever say no to chocolate, but I couldn't refuse these either! Very pretty and so different!
