Speedy The Cat's Friends Challenge- 12 Days of Christmas

Hello it is time for another challenge from Speedy The Cat's Friends Challenge. This week we are joining in on the 12 Days of Christmas Hop that Mark's Finest Papers is having. For my project I chose to do an acetate box. I had one on hand that I had bought a few years ago and used it.
This is super simple and quick to make. I took a strip of card stock that was 12 inches long and then wrapped it around the box to get where I needed to score for the folds. I wrapped that with some jute ribbon. For the focal piece I used this wonderful winter scene from Christmas in the Country from Mark's Finest Papers. I colored with copics and then sponged in the sky. I finished up by matting it and then attaching it to the band. 

I hope you can play along with us this week.  One person will win a stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers and if you use a stamp from Mark's Finest Papers you will get your name put in twice.  Thank you for stopping by.
