A Gift From The Heart

Good evening folks,
I thought it was about time I shared another project with you and this time it is a gift box that I've made to hold my fab Big sister's Christmas pressie. I love her to bits and miss her so much as she is still down in Essex but everyone will be coming to mine for Christmas so we will get to catch up very soon, can't wait!!
Anyway enough waffling from me. I love making anything 3 dimensional so making boxes is a passion of mine and I must say I got a little carried away with this one.

I have coloured all the cute Tilda's with Distress Markers. The box lid and base were punched with my fave MS 'Cherish' punch. I then used the 'Catalina Wreath' die from Memory Box and the 'Layered Poinsettia' nestie. The DP is from Magnolia's Christmas collection from last year. I have faux stitched practically everything and then distressed with Pumice Stone DI and added loads of sparkle with Platinum Stickles. The cute Merry Christmas tags and the sentiment are also Maggie stamps. The amazing sketch came from MDUC and I have to say I loved using it.
A few extra pics to show the rest of the box:
