Magnolia Ink Gift Box

In the new Fairy Tale issue of Magnolia Ink there is a tutorial for a gift box that I thought was pretty neat so I made it. Of course mine isn’t as good as the one in the magazine but i like the way it turned out. BTW – the challenge at Magnolia Stamp Lovers this time is pink and chocolate and the winner will receive a copy of this magazine, be sure to check it out!

I chose spring colors and Tilda with Lamb for my image. This is also one of the first times I have colored Tilda’s clothes with just one color family but think it came out OK.

So, here it is. I do not have any idea where the paper came from, just pulled it from my stash.

  • Skin – E02, E00, E000, R20
  • Clothes – RV34, RV32, RV00, RV0000
  • Lamb – C4, C2, C0, C00
  • Hair – E59, E49, E53, E25
