Magnolia Down Under Challenge #157

Hi and Welcome Everyone!!!

It's time for another awesome new challenge at Magnolia Down Under and this week - we challenge you to Make or Alter a gift box!!!!  These are always so much fun!!

So for my box I've cut a gable box from my Tags, Boxes and More 2 Cricut Cartidge and decorated it up with some so yummy Magnolia paper from the newest collection - Turning Leaves.... mmmm so do you have a favourite from that collection?  well if your like me - I guess it's all of them LOL

I've used Tilda with Daisy's and Mushrooms for this one, I think the daisy's look so perfect with the magnolia paper... I've coloured them somewhat the same but touched them up with some red 35 and 39 to give them a bit of a sunburnt orange look... came out rather well if I do say so myself!! hehehehe

Awww isn't she cute!! I actually am rather fond of this little box so I doubt that I will be giving it away... sorry.... I'm going to put it in my new craft room - which has been painted a very pretty blue this week!!! Here is a side shot....

Mmmm yummy Magnolia Papers!! Pauline I don't know how you keep coming up with all these gorgeous things... but I'm grateful - I love all things Magnolia!!!

    OMG! This is such a gorge box! Is it one of those gable ones? YES! I have tried them a couple of times but they are nooooot no where near this beautiful - mine look like crap ;) Do you have a good template for this one? Or is it made from the heart? ;)

    Stunningly inked little Tilda and superb looking papers too :) I loooove the seam binding - totally awesome!

    Big hugs
