My Craft Spot Challenge #31-'See Through Projects'

Hey guys! Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! Today, we have another fun challenge for you at My Craft Spot! This weeks challenge...'See Through Projects.' We are creating projects that have some 'see through' aspect to them. You can use acetate, transparency, vellum, etc. We just want to see through it! I hope you'll hop on over and join us for the challenge! There is a prize up for grabs! Woot Woot! Go HERE to visit the My Craft Spot blog.

For my project, I created a little cookie box for the hubby. He loves to take cookies in his lunch box for a little sweet treat while on the train, so I thought I'd sneak this in for his next trip. Tee hee! I used my Cricut, Sure Cuts A Lot Software, and files from My Grafico to cut this cookie box. If you are interested in this box, go HERE to see that. To close up the opening that was cut so that you can see into the box, I used leftover transparency sheet that you can find in any office supply store. I did not have acetate, so this worked great in a pinch. I then added lots of goodies from My Craft Spot to jazz it up.

"Hello" Cookie Box

Supplies Used
Cardstock, Button: The Paper Studio
Patterned Paper: Momenta
Stamp, Crinkle Ribbon, Twine: My Craft Spot
Pearls: Queen & Co.
Border Punch: Martha Stewart Crafts
Ink: Stampin' Up!
Transparency: Hammermill
Electronic Cutting Machine: Cricut Expression (Provo Craft)

I added his favorite, Chips Ahoy Chunky Chocolate Chip cookies to the inside. And yes, I snuck one and munched on it while scrappin'! LOL!
I used the crinkle ribbon to tie the box shut. It has a little flap that closes, but I didn't want it to open while he is transporting his lunch box.
Do hop on over and join us for the challenge! We'd love to see what you can create!
