magic box

i havent really given my Maggie blog as much love and attention as i would like to, so i think that would make a good new years resolution once the new year comes around.
I decided to make this magic box that i first saw on my friend Barb's blog, boy i was awe struck, then she told me she had first seen it on Cabio's blog, sure you can figure that very few things are "ours" to claim we invented, this blogging bit is all about sharing knowledge and know how.
this box on a scale of 1>10 was about a 3, so dont be intimidated, try it.  The only thing that took me an age was coloring all the images and deciding what i was gonna put into it.
this is gonna be a present for an elderly friend of mine Jean, i am gonna fill it with flowers and flat backed pearls since i have an over abundance of both, she also crafts and celebrates Christmas so i am sure will appreciate the work and thought that went into this aswell as the little crafty treats i fill it with.
stamps:  Tilda with fir tree, Tilda with snowheart, winter Tilda dn something for you, star Tilda, Angel Tilda, sitting with glitter, vintage Tilda

punches and ie cuts:  nesties, ek success punch and a few miscellaneous flourishes
Other: lots of stickles, liquid applique, flower soft, flat backed pearls and garlands
Paper: MME and basil basics, cryogen white
have a great week
