Since working in the crafting world friends and family always seem to pick me for projects. This year my project is to create little gifts for all of the grandkids for the family Christmas party. So today for Monday Craft Madness I was excited tot ry to use the We R Memory Keepers Punch Boards and Clearly Bold Acetate Paper to create some cute boxes for little gifts. Luckily for me, someone else has to buy the little gifts. So today’s theme is:
Create something with a clear element; a shaker box, a die cut or an entire clear box. Here’s what I created:
I chose the Candy Box Punch Board and I love the different sizes you can create with this board.
I have to admit that punching through the acetate was a little challenging, but I love the result. I can’t wait for the kids to try to steal each other’s presents since they can sort of see through the packaging.
The boxes were actually pretty easy to make, these punch boards are genius and once you get the hang of it you can create boxes, candy boxes, gift bags, and pillow boxes for days. Instructions for all of the punch boards can be found here. Go create!
