While I still had my sand out from my last project...thought I'd make a beach scene in a box. Perfect to send to family and friends who are away and may be missing the island life...
Click here for the cover pattern...cut 2, one for the top and one for the bottom. Put double stick tape on all four tabs of each piece (see below). Cut a 4-1/2" x 6-3/4" piece of acetate. Score at 1", 2", 4-1/4" and 5-1/4". Fold at each scored line and tape edges together at back "seam". The trickiest part of this project is keeping the measurement of the back panel at 2-1/4" wide when you tape the ends together. Make your scene on a piece that will fit on back wall of acetate box. I tried to pop up many layers to get more dimension.
Place the acetate box in one of the cover pieces. Adhere the side tabs first, as shown below:
Then adhere the other two tabs. Fill with sand, place your scene along back wall and tape the top cover on in the same way as the bottom.
