Did you know that in many cultures, the Ladybug represents love, prosperity, and good luck? When I found that out, I knew I had to add one to the Tag on my friend’s gift. I picked the “sweet friend” sentiment today and our Acetate Box as it’s the perfect size for the gift I’m giving. With any of the other six sentiments in this set, I’ll be ready to decorate more Acetate Boxes for all my gift-giving needs … PERFECT!
