Magnolia Christmas Box!

Here is cute little round box Magnolia sent me to decorate. I have never taken photos of something like this so I took a few extra ....the top one being the top of the box.
In this photo I am trying to give you the over all look of the box.....not quite sure I've achieved that here....

This photo is of the sides.

The stamp Cute Tilda I used is here is called, "HV08 Tilda with Heart Ornament" and she is from the recent "Holiday Collection 2oo8" The bench is SEA08 Old Bench and is from the "2008 Summer and Sea Collection" You can see all the new Fabulous Collections right here. You can puchase Magnolia stamps from Pheobe at The Town Scrapper, Diana Crick's Magnolia-licous store, Magnolia-A-Holic and the Magnolia Store.

Images are colored with prismacolor pencils (oms) and h20's. Details are done with acrylic white paint. The edges of the box are painted with, "Folk art pearl paint"

The actual bench is larger than what I have here. I cut the bench in half and just overlapped it to make it smaller for Tilda.

Tilda is popped up on foamy's

The circle behind Tilda is created with a Fiskars punch. The border around the rim is done with a Martha Stewart punch.

Ink - versafine, creamy caramel

Paper - GP card stock, dcwv metallic white, daisy d's.

Accessories - flowers, lace, gem brad....(heart brad from Magnolia)....lace and trim, fern leaves...from Magnolia and Martha Stewart punch, glitter, ribbon from Magnolia.

Winter is in the air here. We've had a few snow flurries but nothing that has stayed....thank goodness!! ...but I guess it is just a matter of time...lol.

Thanks for looking everyone.....and for your lovely comments!! Have a Great Day!!

Oh Yes!!....Keep Hoppin' for more High Hopes Blog candy!!

Goodness Ila, this is such a lovely box/creation. This Tilda is so cute and I am sorry now I did not order her. lol! It's very clever of you to cut the bench in half.
