Peppermint Gable Box

Can you believe it is only a few weeks until Christmas? I've really struggled with the time sneaking up on my this year since I was laid up with an injured ankle that refused to heal for several months. But regardless, Christmas will be here soon and Regina's challenge for the DT this week was a perfect chance to create some fun boxes for goodies for friends and family.
The Gable Box Template and Cutting File comes with assorted window options or no window as I have done here. Regina has the files so that you can cut 2 large pieces to put together to make a large box or one whole piece on one sheet of 12" x 12" (which is created so that you can cut 2 boxes out at once).

I cut 3 pieces for the bottom and glued them together to make a strong base to hold whatever I put inside. I'm thinking some peppermint Hershey Kisses or Ghiradelli chocolates would be a fun treat. Maybe some peppermint tea too.
Because of the thickness of my bottom piece, I put it to the inside and glued the flaps to it, rather than gluing it to the bottom of the flaps.

 I went with an all red and white peppermint theme and used the smaller box file. This box measures 3" wide x 2.5" deep x 3.5" tall. While I had my Silhouette out, I cut several boxes with different Christmas cardstock (both large and small), so I will be showcasing those later as I get them all decorated.
