It’s Midway Reminder time over at Midweek Magnolias and our challenge theme is ‘Christmas is Coming’ I’ve chosen to create a little gift box to share today, I’m sure these will be very popular at Christmas time

This is what I came up with:

My Tildas are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Cryogen White Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 hair: E57, E55, E53, E51, E50 clothes: R29, R27, R24, R22, R0000, G20, YG25, YG23, YG03, Y17, Y26, Y23, Y00

The box underneath the tree was created using the measurements from Heather Hails tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers It’s the perfect size for some small jewellery items, lipstick or just for candy. To create the tree I cut and embossed 4 of the large Marianne Designs tree die, added lots of sparkle with Kindy Glitz and scored the centre fold of each and glued them together, I placed a strip of acetate on 2 of the sides before gluing to help secure it to the box lid. My Tildas busily trimming the tree on both sides are also attached with acetate strips
