Christmas Photo Cube

Hi everyone! I finally have something to post on my blog! Life has been just a little challenging this past month, but lately I have found some small bits of free time to work on a project for Magnolia-licious. I missed participating in the blog hop this month, even though this project was started, I just don't have the time to really sit down and produce.

Diana Crick is running the most fabulous HUGE contest giveaway ever! The first prize is a Kindle - no kidding! How do you enter to win this generous gift? All the details of the contest can be found here at Magnolia-licious Highlites. She also has some fabulous Mini Bundle sales and many other items discounted in her store. Hurry, hurry, hurry over to see what fabulous deals you can find! Oh my! I've just checked over on Diana's store and she is sold out of every image I used on this project except the Minis! Wow! A hugely popular collection!

So, the project needed to be something other than a card using Mini Wrapped and Unwrapped Tilda's. I had in my stash this revolving photo cube which I purchased many months ago. I decided to use this for my project, but I went just a little further. Instead of photos I added 3 of the new Magnolia Sweet Christmas Dreams images, plus, a fireplace and angel which someone had sent me a few years ago.

I put 4 of those battery operated candles inside the cube and when they are turned on they give off a wonderful warm glow. The box itself is painted with white acrylic paint. The dp's are from the Sweet Christmas Dreams collection.

Here is is the Fireplace, and I hope it's from Magnolia because I can't seem to find it anywhere...Popped up with dimensional adhesive is #3001 Mini Wrapped Tilda.

All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the gingham ribbon is from SU and the Angel is adhered to clear cardstock...

This little darling is called #3048 Tilda With Teddy Bear from the Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection....

Next is #3055 Something For You Tilda and I added #3002 Mini Unwrapped Tilda...

Finally I used #3093 Tucked Tilda (I think she's the cutest of all)

Following are close-ups of Unwrapped Tilda and Wrapped Tilda...

I completely lost track of all the Copic markers I used, but I did use Spellbinders Small Ovals and Small Scalloped Ovals for my minis. I also used Liquid Applique on all the fur pieces

I know I'm late with this project, but I thank you in advance for stopping by my blog to view my creation. You know I love to read through all the comments that you leave for me.

Blessings and Hugs,
