Just Magnolia DT- Christmas Gift Box

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a great week and that your weekend is going to be splendid! 
It's Friday, so we have all the reasons to enjoy and moreover, it's time for a great new challenge at Just Magnolia and hAnglar and sTanglar blog; Mandy is our super-talented hostess for this week and she decided it was time for us to ink up our adorable  Christmas Maggies, get into a holiday mood and create!

I made a gift box for today using one of my favorite Maggies called Tilda with wedding gifts from a wedding collection, which I always thought as being from the Merry Little Christmas  and a decorated Christmas Tree from Mo Manning. I think these two work well together. 

I love working with acetate and thought I could cut a window in the lid and sew acetate. It's just a simple box, not an exploding one, I had in mind a simple gift holder so the inside is not decorated.
I also added some cookies just to have an idea.

Materials and tools:
Stamps: Magnolia- Tilda with wedding gifts
Mo Manning-  Christmas Tree
Coloring medium: copics/promarkers
DP- Basic Grey- Nordic Holiday
Embellies; WOC flowers, metal corner and crystal stem; pearls and charm from Bunny Zoe; ribbon and pom-pom lace- The Ribbon Girl; 

Challenges for my box:
Bearly Mine- Anything but a card
Crafty Ribbons- bingo
Paper Pretties -  Embellish

Thank you all for coming by today! I will do my best to catch up with my visits. I haven't been blogging lately, sorry for having been such a stranger. I'm really  grateful you keep coming to my blog and hope you will always find something to inspire you:)
Wish you all a happy weekend!
