Magnolia Treat Box Gift

Good Morning!

Wow, thanks to all of you who joined us yesterday for the Whimsy Stamps release party hop to celebrate the new digital stamp collection! We love to read your comments and we appreciate the time you took to join us and hop from blog to blog. Thank you!

Today I have a special project to share with you. On Friday, the Just Magnolia challenge blog will be celebrating (you'll have to join us on Friday to see why) and in honor of that celebration, I've created a special gift for Heidi of Simon Says Stamp for all of her support of our challenges and the blog candy prizes she gives away as our monthly sponsor. On Friday, I will share my card that will go with this gift and I will host a Magnolia blog candy chance, so be sure to stop back over then!

A couple weeks ago I tried the card/box with drawers treat box and so my project today is taken from that idea. I've created a chest of drawers and filled those drawers with Ghirardelli Raspberry filled Dark Chocolate squares. Yummy! I do plan to post a tutorial for making this box, but it won't be until June.

I've used BG Indian Summer papers and lots of Magnolia images to complete this project. This is the top view of the chest with Sweet Tilda, colored with Copics and then framed in a Scalloped Circle Nestie and embellished with roses and sticky gems.

This is the left side of the box with Tilda with Hearts and more roses to embellish. You can see I used ribbon to cover the side seams where the box panels meet. And on the front, the drawers have pulls created with brads and metal hardware.

And this is the right side with Happy Tilda and more flowers. I've also stitched all the paper edges with the sewing machine. The card stock is pink and razzleberry with more Indian Summer papers.  All of the images on the sides of the box have been colored with Copics and then cut out and popped up on foam tape.

Last is the back side with Hanging Tilda and again more flowers and ribbons and stitching details. I wanted to make this box all about Magnolia since Just Magnolia is a Magnolia challenge blog and Heidi and Simon Says Stamp carry lots of beautiful Magnolia images.

This project also fits the challenges at:
Papertake Weekly: Cutie Pies
Roses on Paper: Layers
Simple Doodles: Inspire Others
Quixotic Challenges: Joy Of Spring

Thanks for dropping by today! I hope you have a wonderful day and get some time to craft. And before I go, I also wanted to mention an awesome blog candy give away by my Just Magnolia teamie Jacque! Just look what she's offering up....

Totally fabulous right! You have until April 29th at midnight to enter! Hurry on over and check it out!

Happy Stamping,
