Make your own clear boxes and pillow boxes!

Hello, my crafty friends!  This is Kimberly (My Craft Spot) and I am so excited that it is my turn to share some fun projects with you!

Scroll down to the bottom for a video showing how I made these boxes!

I cut this box  and lid at at 6 inches from the Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge and then inked the edges of the lid with brown ink from Studio G.  I tied Milk Chocolate crinkle ribbon around the box to hold the lid on.  The polka dot paper is from My Minds Eye.

The "I love you" stamp is from the Always & Forever stamp set.  I hand cut the tag and then tied the button on with Chocolate traditional bakers twine.

I have seen some of you emboss your clear acetate with cuttlebug embossing folders, so I thought I would give it a try.  I love how the embossing looks!


I cut the pillow box at 5.25 inches from the Wrap it Up cartridge. The red tape from Provo craft works best with the acetate.

The stamped sentiments are from the Build a Valentine and Always & Forever stamp sets.

I used my crop-a-dile to put eyelets in this hand cut tag, then threaded Posy Trendy Twine through and tied it around the pink polka dot sleeve.  The pink paper is from Pebbles.

Here is a video showing how to make these two treat boxes:

Oh my, Kimberly, these are just so adorable! I must try the embossing and I love the eyelets in the tag then wrapped around the band. That's definitely on my "to try" list. Thanks for the great projects.
