Magnolia Winter Lantern Gift Box

Good morning!!! Before I go on, I wanted to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my dearest daughter Jasmine. She is turning 11 years old today.

I am going to post one last Magnolia project before Christmas and hope you enjoy this. I haven't been posting for a few days, but I wasn't stopped crafting. I've been working on quite a few projects. Since December will be my busy month, I am bumping projects like crazy. Basically I go directly to my craftroom right after my full time job everyday. This project is one I made weeks ago, but just never get a chance to post.

If you like this Lantern Gift Box, you can check out my talented blogger friend Norma's Blog for her amazing tutorial. I used two stamps from the Merry Christmas 2010 stamps from Magnolia-licious. The two stamps are Tilda in Winter Light and Tilda in Christmas Coat. They both give a great theme for winter or Christmas project. Since the Tilda in Winter Light has the same type of Lantern, I though it would be fun using it for this project.

I am using this project for the following challenges:
Lexi's Creations Challenge #29 - Glitter & Pearls
Paper Playtime Challenge # 30 - Christmas
CCH#46 The Crazy Challenge - Let it snow
The Pink Elephant Challenge #90 - Winter Wonderland
7 Kids Challenge Fund Challenge #10 - Winter Wonderland
Magnolia Down Under Challenge #77 - A Gift for You
Sundays with Crissy Challenge #12 - Christmas is coming (2nd entry)
Paper Sundaes Challenge #49 - Cut it out
Allsorts Challenge Week 83 - Anything Goes
Stampin for the Weekend Challenge #53 - Christmas
DDCC #93 - Winter
Stampavie and More Challenge #121 - Make a Gift
Ellephantastic Challenge #21 - Wish Upon a Star &/or Christmas/Winter
Bunny Zoe's Crafts Challenge #7 - Sparkle & Shine
Cutie Sunday #123 - Christmas
CES Challenge #17 - Anything Goes

Here is my finished project.

Here is a picture to show you when I put a little battery operate tea light inside, but of course instead of using it as a light, you can also fill this up with candies, chocolates or other goodies.

Closer view on these stamps

Here is a picture to show you a closer view when the lid is opened.

and the inside

I hope you enjoy what I've prepared for you and hope to see you again soon :o)

Hi Cabio!
I love coming to your blog.
You have done a wonderful job on your lantern. I love the way you have colored both Tilda's. My favorite is Tilda with the lamp. Love the glitter on her hat and coat and her little boots look so cute.
Your lantern is so beautifully made and now I am tempted to make one for my sister. Just enough time me thinks.
Happy birthday to Jasmine. My grand daughter is the same age and her name is spelled Jazmyn.
Have a wonderful Christmas.
Hugs Maz
