Gift box with acetate

I have been wanting to get some clear acetate for a few stampin projects that I've always wanted to try out; and finally this week I did just that. Though I had to go to three different stationery stores before I found some. The last store I tried sold packs of 10 A3 sheets which was just perfect; now I have some to last me a little while.
So here's what I made: a gift box filled with chocolates! This box is similar to one of Makeesha's MIM tutorials, so if you would like some details you can have a look there. But I've just designed this one on my own with the lovely Rasberry Tart DP. The measurements are 20cm high and 5cm x 9cm for the width around.
For the tag I've used a Sale-a-bration set - this sentiment is perfect for this gift box. I've used the Scallop edge punch to make the corners and then used a brad and tafetta ribbon to tie onto the wide ribbon.
Now that I've made one of these, I know I'll def. be making some more very soon.
I've started working on a Convention Momento Box which will hold a mini album and other treasures from Convention. I've also used some acetate on this project as well, so I hope to share that with you all sometime soon.

I buy overhead transperancies from the newsagency in A4 sheets for acetate, maybe that would help make them easier to find next time?
