May Craft Box – The Final Project. This is a very simple way to use the Acetate Boxes as a gift box that is not for a set of cards.
I measured some bars of chocolate against the acetate box and marked where they went to with a piercing tool. Next I scored the box from one die to the other so I could see the mark and cut the box along it. Using the trimmer for this is not to be encouraged, but a set of good strong scissors will do the trick.
In the video I was not sure about adding Wood Texture Paper to the inside of the gift box, but now I have tried it, I love it. It adds a certain something to an otherwise, fairly plain gift box. Adding some ribbon and a True Gent button sets everything off really well. The copper foil is such a great way to add a bit of bling, and turn a useful box into a lovely little gift package.

For every £25 you spend in May AND use the Hostess Code, you will be entered into a draw to win the Color Caddy and all four of the Core Color Family Ink Pads (as shown in the 2017-18 Annual Catalogue) worth in excess of £200! If you place orders of £50, you will get 2 entries, £75, you will get 3 entries etc. BUT if you place a single order of over £150 and opt to be your own Hostess (which means you pick how to spend your Rewards) you will only get ONE entry into the draw. Please note that this is a gift from me, and is non-returnable. The usual Customer Gifts will not be effected by the Prize Draw, so if you use the Hostess Code you will get a share of the Rewards, as usual. EVERYONE who shops with me will receive a handmade card and gift in the middle of the following month, regardless of how much you spend.
If your order is over £25 (plus P&P), please use the Hostess Code:

The Starter Kit is ALWAYS the best deal in the Catalogue and great value at just £99 for your choice of £130 of products (with no additional P&P).
