Thinking of you acetate christmas gift box

Good afternoon bloggers and my followers!

I hope your day is going well and your week is too. Thanks again for your comments and just viewing my blog. All comments are thoroughly read and very much appreciated.

As you may know by now I like doing things different rather than just the normal cards. I guess it's because I like to challenge myself lol. I love doing new projects some simple, some difficult. It's not just about entering challenges it's about inspiring others and sharing your projects. I love viewing all of your blogs, you are all very talented and you all should be proud of yourselves!

Ok this project was another tutorial from the same split coaster web site link here: Acetate gift box tutorial . I coloured my favourite Sarah Kay stamps in with my pro markers which is my favourite part lol. The lids for the box were made using a spellbinders label die. I decorated using my images , rose ribbon flowers , sentiment and a flourish die. I also pierced a hole through both sides of the lis and the acetate to thread ribbon through for the handle.  The acetate was some snowfall acetate I had from a Hunkydory kit. I'm using this as a thinking of you gift box for that special person at christmas who needs that extra lift and love.

I hope you like
