Window Sheet Treat Box

How about this for a nice way to gift wrap something?? I love these acetate boxes, but haven't made one in over a year, not sure why as they are terrific for packaging lollies (sweets/candies to our Northern Hemisphere readers), soaps or bath bombs, biscuits or a myriad of other items. I think I love this Jolly Holiday designer series paper more every time I use it if that's possible, it's definitely a firm favourite of mine from the catalogue! My hint of the day would be use sticky strip on the window sheet as then the join won't show very much as the sticky strip is more transparent than SNAIL (in my opinion of course!). This box was made using a 3" square base of Old Olive, scored at 1/2" all the way around to form the top and bottom boxes that are 2" square. The window sheet was cut to approximately 6" high and each score was 1 15/16" apart to make it just that fraction smaller than the ends to fit nicely.
