Acetate Box

I have wanted to create a clear box for awhile now, and since we now sell window sheets, I decided to give it a try. I used the acetate box tutorial on Splitcoaststampers.

Paper: Pretty in Pink, Kiwi Kiss card stock, Raspberry Tart DSP
Accessories: Punches: Scallop edge, scallop circle, 1 3/8” circle, 1 ¼” circle, 1/16” circle, Crop-A-Dile, white Uni-Ball Signo Gel pen, Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla satin ribbon, Stampin’ Dimensionals, SNAIL adhesive, Sticky Strip, Craft & Paper scissors, Hershey’s mini bars

This box might look familiar to you if you view my posts. I created a scallop circle card for a sketch challenge recently. You can view that post here. I made the box to match one of the cards since both the card and box were gifts for my mother-in-law.

Here I photographed the set together:

The card looks huge compared to the box in this picture but I don’t think there is such a size difference in real life. If I had positioned the box in front of the card, the proportions might look more realistic. At least you can see that the box and card coordinate :)

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have fun stampin’ and creatin’!

This is a beautiful set, Michelle!! I am rarely brave enough to venture beyond making cards, but your box is so lovely, I'm tempted to try. Thanks for sharing, and I hope your mother-in-law loved these!
