I have been seeing some wonderful projects made by cutting the acetate boxes in half. I needed a few treats to give out to some friends so I decided to make a few.
You have several choices to cut the acetate boxes in half. I measured the length of the box closed and counted the flaps, too. I cut at four inches to cut it in half. I used the old retired trimmer from Stampin' Up! that had the arm. It worked great. You might have to cut it with scissors. In that case, you might want to mark a cutting line. I would cut just outside the line so it does not show. Assemble the boxes.
The treats I choose to use were Russell Stover. I chose the Truffle and the Caramel Santas. There were other choices, but I like those and I like the pictures of Santa. I put one of each in the box.
Wrap the box at the bottom with designer paper from the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper. I cut a piece that was 2 x 10. Use Fast Fuse to hold the ends together.
Add a gold Foil Snowflake. Trim a little from the bottom so that it is flat. I think I cut off about an inch at the largest part.
The deer is cut from Early Espresso card stock using the Santa's Sleigh Framelits. Add a wreath around his neck using the Boxwood Wreaths from the Annual Catalog. Pull the length of the wreath and and cut it in half for this. Adhere to the back of the neck of the deer with a glue dot. Color a rhinestone with the Light Cherry Cobbler Blend and adhere for the nose. Put the deer on the box with Mini Dimensionals.
The Merry Christmas is stamped in Real Red on Whisper White scraps. Cut around it and glue flat.
This treat is pretty easy to make. Try it!
Have a wonderful and blessed day! Enjoy the season! If you don't already have a demonstrator I would love to be yours. Let me know how I can help you!
