Autumn Gift/Secret Box


I just wanted to show you another secret box that I made using autumn colours.
This is the view of the front and side.

View of the back and side.

The box opens up to reveal 3 secret trays.  

If you're interested, see my secret-box tutorial HERE

I have coloured this oh-so-adorable image of Tilda with a Mouse, Peanut for the front panel.  She is from Magnolia's Turning Leaves Collection 2012.  Colouring of the images for this project was done with markers--Letraset Promarkers and Letraset Pantone Trias.

On the back panel, there is another adorable Tilda image from the same collection, this one is called Tilda With Daisies and Mushrooms.

I have used a mini stamp this time for the top of the box.  This is Mini Rose Scent Tilda from the Sweet Crazy Love Collection 2012 - Mini.

All the Magnolia stamps I have used here are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store.  She has a vast selection of both the full-size and mini stamps. Check out also the selections of cutting dies from Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Magnolia, Marianne Design and Cheery Lynn Designs.  Diana also gives excellent service, discounted prices and you earn in-store credit for every order to boot.   

The two side panels are decorated the same way with this floral and foliage arrangement.
