Mini Magnolia Bowl Box

I don't know about you, but I am soooo worried about everyone in Japan.  My prayers go out to the country and all those who live there!!! My stomach just turns watching the news with all they are going through and the huge threat of a meltdown to top it all off! I feel a little helpless sitting here watching it AHHH!

On another note, while searching through blogland a few weeks ago, I found this wonderful tutorial for a Bowl Box.  This project was found HERE.  I simply followed the tutorial and thought is was sooooo cool! I did need to make some adjustments because I prefer working in inches vs. cm.  Look how well the mini Tildas go with it and I had a great time decorating it with my Wild Orchid Crafts stash!!!!



I love how it opens!


Here is a list of the supplies I used:

The minis are colored in copics and the paper is Prima. I am going to enter this into the Magnolia licious Highlights contest for Projects with an Easter/Spring theme. You can enter into 3 categories and there will be voting, yikes! There are some really awesome prizes up for grabs! haha!

Look how those Reeses Peanut Butter cups fit nicely inside!!! These are my all-time favorites candy, YUM!

Anyhow, I hope you like my little project.  I love how the mini Magnolias fit perfectly on the sides!!!

Thank you for the visit!  
Hugs, Dena

Oh Dena I just love your beautiful box/bowl. It is very clever how it opens out. Beautifully decorated with those minis and pretty papers and flowers. I'm a sucker for Reeces PBCs. Can't get them in England so I always stock up when I'm in the States! Big hugs, Lesley
