Christmas Magic BLOG HOP Magnolia-licious

Magnolia-licious is having a Christmas magic blog hop!!! You'll have two chances to win a $50 certificate to Magnolia-licious store!

If you came to my blog from Cathy, then you're on your right way! ;)
For my dt project I made an explosion box using a lot of Magnolia items. I cut the box out by hand and decorated it with Maja Design papers, Summer crush coll.

I used Tilda with little Snowy from A lovely Christmas collection, 2015. I coloured her using Distress markers and ink pads.

I made a small gift box and put it in the centre of the explosion box. It's big enough for a few candies, some jewelry or just a note.

On one of the sides I put a snowglobe. It's actually a shaker. I filled it with mica fragments and it looks pretty awesome.

DIES used on this project:
flower, snowflake, leaves (Doohickey box vol.7) - Magnolia
tags (Doohickey box vol.3) - Magnolia 
snowglobe - la-la land crafts
