MFP Twelve Days of Christmas - Day 5

I hope you've been getting a lot of inspiration from all the the wonderful projects our design team members have presented so far. Speedy the Cat has been hanging out at the MFP Blog, where the action starts each day. Today's projects are acetate boxes.

I used the tutorial in the Resources section of Splitcoaststampers for my first box. The cute little snowman is from MFP Snowman Country.



My second box is somewhat larger than the first, and I confess I don't remember where I saw the directions for this one. I was making it from memory. The top and bottom pieces are empty ribbon spools, covered in designer paper. The wreath is from a new MFP set called Holly Greetings.



Be sure to check out all four blogs in today's hop.

Beautiful boxes, Lois. I think it is a fab idea to use the ribbon spools and I love the way you colored the wreath.
