TLC182 Acetate Treat Box 8/18/08
 
1 Attachment(s)
I have another acetate challenge for you today. (so perhaps I'm on a Acetate Trip -lol - giggle).

There are many occasions when we need to give a little gift or treat, and having adorable packaging makes the treat all that more yummy, not to mention how impressed the receiver will be when you tell them that you made it yourself! Whether it's a birthday for a co-worker, neighbor, or Halloween treats for your child's class, this cute little box is just the thing!

Attached is an acetate box tutorial that I got from Susie McCormick, a/k/a tmccorm106@peoplepc.com. (thanks Susie) Click the PDF file attached for complete instructions and dimensions. Let's see all the different things you can come up with to fill your treat box. Treats don't always need to be candy!

You can find my samples: HERE
View Susie's sample: HERE

Don't forget to use keyword TLC182 when you upload.

To view all the Acetate Treat boxes using this challenge check out the TLC182 Gallery

What a neat box - what a good challenge - at first I thought, oh,no! But, after I saw the box - well, I'm on it!!!

I'd love to play today, but I am working nights, and have to sleep. Also, I don't have any acetate. Hope to get some this week!

Out of my league but...
 
This challenge is really out of my league, to think I can make this will take a leap of faith, but I'm game if you gals won't laugh at the result.:D :D

Thanks Lynn will be playing along today.

guitargerle 08-18-2008 03:35 AM

Hi there! I really want to make one too but I can't find the instructions. I followed the link and that takes me to Susie's gallery and there is a link to her blog but the links to both of her porjects do not give anything but an error message. Hopefully someone can help me. I'll check back later.

Lynn in St. Louis 08-18-2008 03:41 AM

You'll do great...fear not! ;)

Thanks Lynn! I missed it!

What a great little box!! Will definitely play when I get home tonight! :)

DawnL 08-18-2008 04:18 AM

n5stamper 08-18-2008 04:42 AM

Here is my CREEPY CRAWLY TREAT BOX.

Tell me I am not the 1st to load one of these? I have never been 1st after the hostess. WOW this is GREAT!

Mary56 08-18-2008 04:44 AM

OK, I'm at the beach (poor me) with nothing, but what kind of acetate do you recommend as best -- there is thick and thin....

AmberDawn 08-18-2008 04:54 AM

Super fun challenge, Lynn! Here's mine: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=58272

bensarmom 08-18-2008 04:56 AM

Lynn, I'll try this but I'm not sure if it will work. Last time I made a box like this it got pitched..........fingers crossed, a prayer and a BIG cup of coffee will help for sure! Thanks for the challenge.

bambi64 08-18-2008 05:01 AM

What a neat little box. Thanks for a great challenge, Lynn. Not sure if I can play as I don't know if I have any acetate. :(

pachyderm23 08-18-2008 05:02 AM

I have always wanted to try this cute little box!! I am really gonna try to make time to give this a try today!!

Judyw 08-18-2008 05:14 AM

A ggod friend won't let you take an acetate trip alone, so I am here with you. There is nothing organic about this sugar rush except for the name of the paper I used. Sugar Rush

BevMom 08-18-2008 05:18 AM

Fun! Never made one of these, so this *will* be Try a New Technique challenge! :)
Thanks Lynn! I've already got an idea rolling around up there.

debhorst 08-18-2008 05:19 AM

Here is my treat box for today's challenge--I filled my with bath salts instead of candy!!

Lynn in St. Louis 08-18-2008 05:40 AM

Bwhahaha...funny!

SassiAngel 08-18-2008 05:48 AM

I've always wondered, and this is the perfect time to ask... WHERE do you get acetate? How is it sold, in sheets? Are there different thicknesses?? I wanna play!! :(

MariLynn 08-18-2008 05:52 AM

Thanks for the challenge Lynn. I hope I can play after work today.

Tlarosa1970 08-18-2008 05:52 AM

Looks like fun! I think I'll have to try this!

bensarmom 08-18-2008 05:55 AM

Lynn, I'm trying to understand the measurements for the cardstock section. Is it 8 1/2 by 2 1/2?

NANCYRUTH 08-18-2008 05:58 AM

thanks Lynn I am so happy you post early and I get to play B4 work! here is mine... http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...21537?cat=5683

Lynn in St. Louis 08-18-2008 06:01 AM

I actually got mine from work because they were going to throw it away! ACK.

But you can buy acetate a/k/a overheads, from any office supply store or Walmart, K-mart, Target, etc. It's sold in a package with varying amounts, so just look at what they have available. I always get the type suitable for laser jet printers because they can take the heat, should I decide I want to emboss on them.

I purchased some Grafix Plastic at Archivers, this worked wonderful for the box, nice and sturdy.

Here is mine

Happy Stamp Day!

Lynn in St. Louis 08-18-2008 06:03 AM

Yes that is correct.

Oh my gosh, this challenge couldn't be MORE perfect -- I've been wanting to do one of these!!! Thanks -- hope I have time today -- THANK YOU!!!!

artystamper 08-18-2008 06:19 AM

I just love this box! can't wait to try one!

tggrfriend 08-18-2008 06:21 AM

What a fantastic challenge, Lynn! I hope I get the chance to play today! I love these acetate boxes!

cullenwr 08-18-2008 06:25 AM

The samples are SO great and wish I could try it, but alas, no acetate to be found! I'll just sit back and enjoy every else's creations! Go girls!

sgtStamper 08-18-2008 06:38 AM

Oh this was so much fun! I learned a few things in the process:

[1] Acetate has a mind of it's own.
[2] It's hard to thread ribbon onto little beads without a needle
[3] I will definitely try this again...

Here's my card.

Thanks for lookin'

star 08-18-2008 06:44 AM
