See-through Easter makes

Good morning! No waffle from me today for a change because I have a few pictures of this pretty Easter sweetie box and card to show you.

I'm entering these into a few challenges and these are all linked up at the bottom of this post.

These are my DT projects for the Frosted Designs challenge which today is all about Acrylic, Transparent or Vellum. I've gone for the transparent option and used some acetate in both my little box and my card.

This is a little peep box so that when the lid is lifted up you can see the sweeties through the acetate window

I also added a couple of the pearls to the inside of the acetate so that the butterfly glued to the outside looked complete when you saw it from the inside.

I've just realised that I took the photo before I'd stamped the Easter sentiment onto the card.

Here is a close-up of the box lid when it is closed

Don't forget to pop over to see what amazing things the talented Frosted Designs team have made for this challenge.

I'm entering these into the following challenges:

Pals Paper Arts - Anything but a card
Challenge Up Your Life - Flower Compliment

Our Creative Corner - Think Easter

Magical Crafts - Easter or Spring

Incy Wincy - Easter or Spring

C.R.A.F.T. - Easter

Thanks for looking,

Sharon xx
