Helen Griffin UK Day 4 Faux Acetate Treat Box

4th Day of Christmas | Faux Acetate Mini Treat Boxes

Easy boxes with acetate, without the hassle of making a complete box – here’s how….

If you’ve ever tried to make an acetate box, then you will know that it can be troublesome with probably a cut finger thrown into the mix. Acetate can be difficult as it’s see through, resistant to folding, and your adhesive is always visible!

Today’s project keeps the acetate playtime to a minimum – a box that looks like a proper box, but constructed in a simple manner.

I also have a bonus box to share – measurements are down below.
