Acetate Boxes – make it pop by embossing the clear box

I'm pretty much done shopping at this point and I like to spend time making fun packaging.

Lots of ways to make these boxes pop!  You could put the box in an embossing folder (lots of great options). 

I used the snowflake embossing folder.  I found that it was best to run the folder through flat (not folded as usual). By making it flat the box and folder went through more easily and it embossed on 1 side.

You can put it through the Big Shot with the folder folded (as usual) and that works fine and puts the embossed image on both sides of the box.

Another idea is to insert a piece of designer paper (12 x 4 3/8, scored at 5 ¾ from each end of the long side.  Fold and insert into the box and add in cards, or chocolates, anything.  You can wrap ribbon around the top and add an embellishment, such as the felt shapes. 

I chose the Christmas Around the World paper for these examples.

Happy packaging and happy stamping - MaryKate
