The Acetate Boxes are on page 13 in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog. You might have missed them. They are the perfect size to hold 5 cards and envelopes. Making them nice for storing a set of cards or better yet – giving a set of handmade cards as a gift! Who would you give some too?
But what happens when you cut one of those nice boxes in half? Well you get two small open-ended boxes that you can use for holding little treats or tags or any number of things.
I used a Guillotine cutter to cut them exactly in half. The paper trimmer won’t work. Or you could measure and use some heavy duty scissors being careful to get a straight edge. In either case I used Designer series paper along my top edge – so if your cut isn’t perfect the paper can hide it. The paper I used was from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.
To finish decorating my box I stamped a tag from the Merry Little Labels stamp set and punched it out with the Everyday Label Punch. To the back of it I added two vellum Leaf punches – that’s the new Leaf Punch – and then added that to an Old Olive piece of card stock. To the back of that I’ve added a piece of Mini Gold Sequin Trim and a piece of the Foil Snowflake – I used a gold one. Then I put the whole thing on my box with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. Finally I tied around a piece of Jute Twine.
Now fill with goodies!
I found these Honey Caramel Chocolate Peanut clusters at Sam’s Warehouse. They come in a big bag but are individually wrapped – plus the green foil went nicely with my paper! Actually I bought the candy first and then went through my paper to find what looked good with the candy!
Be sweet! Thanks for stopping by.
