Gift box inspired by Debbie

Debbie Airey from my team gave me a delightful box as a demo swap - the original box used Fifth Avenue Floral and Great Friends & then she kindly taught me how to make one using Snow Swirled which is such a versatile set.

Well it's been a long time since I stamped on acetate with Stazon White & I'm very happy to report that I'm a much better stamper now - it used to scare me but no sign of any hand shake & the snow flake was a dream to cut out - thanks Debbie this is such a cool project.

Stamp set: Snow Swirled
Ink: Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Stazon White
Paper: Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, "Acetate"
Other: Scallop edge punch, mini glue dots, Tombow Glue, Dazzling Diamonds glitter

Debbie's original inspiration was the lovely Marelle Taylor who kindly has a tutorial explaining how to make this so simple but effective box HERE. She calls it the 7s box - I'll be back tomorrow night with another 7s box so until then...

Hate to say this but Stazon White & Stazon cleaner are in the Spring Mini which expires November 30th so don't forget to order some while you can.

I like these boxes - so cute in those wintery blue colours!!!

Certainly doesn't look like you were having issues with hand-shaking!! Sharlene
