Altered Acetate Box for FFF challenge

This little box was a labor of love as our third daughter graduates the end of March from high school (homeschooled) and will soon be determining when to move on with the next phase of her life.  We are very proud of her and this is one way I thought of to let her know how much.  I will be posting a tutorial later today showing how I made this box as I took the instructions from Splitcoast Stampers and altered them for what I needed, plus I turned the top into a mortarboard to complete the look.

I used Graduate Gilly from Prairie Fairy Designs for my image and for the challenge of Anything but a Card at Fairy Fun Fridays.  Go check out what the design team has whipped up for this challenge and don't forget to enter your own work at a chance to win some gorgeous Prairie Fairy images.
