Dendelion Tilda vintage box

Today I'm showing you a vintage box I made a few days ago. I haven't made a lot in the last week and a half because I've been ill for the last three weeks. I'm a bit better atm, but still not 100 % ok. Soooo ... after a few days with high fever I finally crawled out of bed and made this.


I used one of the new Magnolia stamps from Spring stamp box 2016 called Tilda with Dendelion. You can pre-order all the new Magnolia stamps from Spring Fever 2016 collection at magnolia-licious store HERE.


Papers used are from Simple stories, Legacy coll. 


Sentiment Happy Memories is also from the new Spring Fever collection.


Here's how it looks closed. The box inside measures 3.5" x 3.5" x 2", so there's enough room to put some candy inside or something small.


I also used a few items from The Ribbon Girl store:
