Thrifty Christmas: Gifts Under $5, Fuzzy Socks, Acetate Box

My dh got me a pair of these warm and fuzzy socks for my b-day, and I loved them so much I thought they would make a great Christmas gift! But how to wrap something as boring (but cute -n- fuzzy) as socks? How 'bout an acetate box? While they may SEE the gift, they'll still have to guess just a little...could it be socks, a scarf, mittens? Since this has a "handle" you can also hang it on the tree. Here's the tutorial for this cute acetate box : http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=374478&highlight=acetate+box+tutorial

I changed the directions slightly to fit my socks and made it 8" tall...

Recipe:
  • Paper: Transparency (for acetate), cardstock from stash
  • Stamp: Magnolia
  • Punch: Marthat Stewart Lace
  • Die: Nestabilities
  • Other: Colored Pencils, Double Stick Tape, Hole Punch, Ribbon
