Magnolia Tilda Christmas Advent Calendar Box

Good morning everyone. Today I would like to share a 3D project with you and it is also my first published project. This project appeared on Magnolia Ink Magazine - my favorite magazine. I am so excited and thankful about this :o)



Here is the complete post of my finished project which I've spent over a month to get it completed. It is a Christmas advent calendar box. This project used a regular size Jolly Tilda and four Mini Tilda stamps. The little drawers were cut from Sizzix match box die. I spent a lot of time folding and assembling the drawers together, then the embossing part took quite a bit of time too. I added a shape easel card on top of this box.


View of all the drawers when that is closed.


Here is a closer view and the view of this regular sized Jolly Tilda.




Here are some closer view showing you the four sides of this box.


Here is the view when the top easel is closed.


Thank you for stopping by today and hope to share with you another project soon :o)
