Prism Congrats

How amazing is the new Hydrangea Hill Mercury Acetate? I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a pack of it – not only because it contains purple either! The pack contains two different colours, Highland Heather & Rococo Rose, both equally beautiful. My box is made from Highland Heather and during my Facebook Live, I made one using Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Snail Mail suite.

The box is a prism slider, where the acetate or DSP acts as a ‘wrap’ around the inner card box. It’s a good size and will hold a varying amount of sweet treats or jewellery – perhaps even stationary. Because of the acetate and how stunning it looks, I didn’t need to add much more to get a gorgeous finish to the project.

A quick bow using the Gorgeous Grape sheer ribbon, a couple of flowers from the Hydrangea dies and a sentiment from the ‘You are Amazing’ stamp set. Quick and easy project which showcases the suite perfectly.

Which way did you prefer – acetate or Designer Series Paper?

Best Wishes,
