Day 3 The Acetate Box with Merry Little Christmas Tags

Day 3 of 12 Days of Christmas!  

These acetate boxes are great for putting in your cards, wrapping some ribbon around and giving your cards as gifts. My hunch is that these will be the most popular accessory on the Holiday Catalog this year.  They are 10 for $6.50.

They are also great when you cut them in half (with your scissors, the trimmer isn’t strong enough).  Insert designer paper cut 9 ¾ x 2 ¾ (scored at ½, 4 7/8, 5 3/8

Stamp the greeting and cut the greeting out with the 2nd to largest scallop circle and cut either red foil or red glimmer paper with the next largest scallop circle.  Wrap the red tinsel ribbon around the box (about 18”) and then add the greeting on top of the tinsel.

You can fill the boxes with many things – cards/envelopes, treat tubes, cookies, chocolates – we’ll do tags on Oct 14.

The tags are 9x2, folded in half, punched with the triple banner punch.   I used the Merry Little Christmas paper (it's black and white so you can color it, or use the Old Olive side).  Stamp your greetings and punch out with the Everyday Label punch (that comes with a matching stamp set)

Punch a 1/8 hole at the top, add the piece  inside that is white cut 4 x 2 (triple banner punch this one, and adhere below your 1/8 hole).  Stamp and punch the greeting using the Everyday Label punch.  Punch either red glimmer or red foil with the same punch, cut this in half and adhere to the back of the while label with the red ends poking out.    

 Add in matching red tinsel cut about 8-9” and knotted at the end.   You get 2 rolls for $9. 

If you’d like the patterns for the full set of the 12 days of Christmas, they are included with the Oct 14 event (full color instructions, lots of details and photos) or with any order placed in October with the host code, or as always free to anyone on my team. 

We are making this project at our Oct 14 event in Pittsfield – let me know if you are in by Oct 5 for the $30 price for 5 projects, and the Christmas Watercolor set.  If I get an RSVP after the 5th you’ll have to pay extra to cover expedited shipping. 

Happy stamping - MaryKate
