Acetate Treat Box

Good morning everyone,

Today's project is pretty simple. I decided to make an acetate treat box. This was a Try a New Technique Challenge several weeks ago on Splitcoast. You can see the template and directions here .

The Trick or Treat bag stamp and the candy coming out of it are from the Trick or Treat mini set from Hanna Stamps. I stamped the bag and the candy separately onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored them in with copics. I punched the bag out using SU's 1 3/8 circle punch and then punched out a scallop circle from SU's Elegant Eggplant using SU's scallop circle punch. I cut the candy out and adhered it to the bag. I then covered the candy in Diamond Stickles for some bling. :) The patterned paper is from K&Co.'s Halloween stack. The ribbon is from Memory Makers. I got the acetate (which is just transparency paper) from Office Max. Of course, I had to fill the box up with Candy Corn, my favorite Halloween candy :)

I hope you enjoy. I'd love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow.

Hugs, Christine
