Short Cuts Fosted Sheets Treat Box + Tutorial

Here's another version of the Cupcake box I made earlier. I decided to use Full Frosted Sheet of Acetate (from Short Cuts) rather than clear this time. Why? Well I thought it would make a cute gift for someone and with it being frosted it's almost a teaser as to what it contains. I filled it with French Vanilla Maxiccino, candy canes and kisses. And I'm showing you my secret weapon for paperpiecing...big paper clips. They sure are "handy-dandy"...LOL

Desert Sand Cardstock-CTMH
Lovely Lace Border Punch-Martha Stewart
Desert Sand and Chocolate ink-CTMH
Snowflake Punch-Martha Stewart
Glimmer Mist (Coffee shop)-Tattered Angels
White Hemp
Snag'em Stamps-imaginisce
Glitter and Walnut ink

The box measures 3” squared x 6” high.
Cut one piece of acetate 6x10.5”, score at 0.5, 3.5, 7, and 10”. (this only gives you 3 sides of the box)
You will need to cut an additional 3x6” of cardstock (this is the 4th side of the box or the back side).
Fold the score lines and glue the back piece to form a box.
For the base and top covers cut two 6x6” piece of pattern paper.
Score at 1 ½” and 4½” on both sides.
Fold and glue the flaps together to form your box. Decorate as desired.
Slip the bottom box over the clear box body. Glue with Tombo adhesive or Sticky strips.

Glue only the bottom piece to the clear body, you will want to be able to fill the box when your finished.

To make a stand inside the box so objects appear higher (don’t get lost on the bottom of the box). (Photos not included for this because you just need to repeat the steps to make the base).

For the base and top covers cut two 5.5x5.5” piece of pattern paper.
Score at 1” and 3 ½” on both sides.
Fold and glue the flaps together to form your box.
Flip your box so that the bottom becomes the top, to stand your cupcake on.
