Fun with Clear Cardstock at The Cutting Cafe



I have a confession!

In the six years that I've been paper crafting this is my first time to use clear cardstock however it won't be the last. I love my clear box which was cut using a file - Square Box with Front Window - from The Cutting Cafe and my Silhouette Cameo. Initially I was concerned about my machine cutting too deep for this cardstock but it's sturdy and held up exceptionally well. I love this stuff!!! While the cutting file came from The Cutting Cafe the clear cardstock (and other wonderful craft supplies) can be found at The Cutting Cafe Shop


The Cutting Cafe


For this project I used two 12 x 12 sheets of clear cardstock to cut the top and bottom of my box. I cut on the solid lines and fold on the dash lines. It came together in a snap and I used double stick tape to attach the corners. It's filled with used wine corks that I collect from restaurants for my crafty friend who makes her own birdhouses. She decorates the exterior with wine corks and sells them to a local shop. Instead of dropping these off in a bag, as I usually do, I thought she might enjoy receiving them in this sweet little box. She'll know immediately what's in it and I think she'll love it. Regina also offers 8.5 x 11 sheets of clear cardstock and you'll find those here

This is a very nice way to gift something that is a multiple. Why you can even decorate this way. Nice use of the clear cardstock.
