You can also cut the boxes in half and make a topper with designer's series paper.  I love the gold paper with the gold candies!  What a cute little gift!


Cut Those Acetate Boxes For Adorable Gifts!

In the next three posts, I will be sharing how to make some adorable, cute gifts with our acetate boxes.  And yes, the boxes will be carried over into the new year!  In this first post, you can cut the box in half and decorate the top.  Then the top slides over the bottom to make an enclosed clear box enticing you with the treat inside!

This nice combination of fall colors had me thinking of an autumn card, but I couldn't figure out what to do with the Blushing Bride color!  Since it is a skin tone, I decided to go with one of my favorite Stampin' Up! Sets, the Beautiful You, and the gorgeous tangerine DSP I was saving from the Foil Frenzy pack of paper.  This is where my thought processes took me.....

Frame It!

I love this new technique!  Find a shape you like and pick out a size a little larger.  Cut them out of basic black Cardstock.  Find a stamped image that fits in the frame and a sentiment that is smaller than the frame.  Stamp them both on whisper white Cardstock and tack the frame over.  Cut out a space for the sentiment and ta da!  A card that highlights both the image and the sentiment!  I have designed several cards similar to this that I will be featuring in my next classes!  Try it!  You might become addicted too!  It makes great use of our layered shapes framelets!
