Magnolia-licious DT - Blog Hop - Christmas Magic

Good morning and welcome to our Christmas Magic Magnolia-licious Blog Hop!  If you just seen
Karen's stunning creation then you're on the right track.  If not, and you'd like to join us for the hop from the beginning, then pop to the Magnolia-licious blog to start from the beginning.
There are two chances to win a $20 gift certificate for the Magnolia-licious store so you don't want to miss any out!  Details are at the bottom of this post.
 I've made a special gift bag that unfolds to reveal a Christmas bauble.  I have used one of the new dies from the Doohickey Vol 7 kit which shows a cute winter scene.  I have also used the snowflake die from the kit and the sentiment is from Magnolia too.  The gorgeous vintage ruffled seam binding, button twine and rusty bells are from The Ribbon Girl.
 I've used the winter scene die on the back of the gift bag too.
 When you untie the front bow you can lift up the flap of the bag like so...
 ...and then it starts to unfold...
 ...to reveal four sweet Tildas and the bauble.
 I have used the winter scene die to cut the scene inside the bauble too, but only the bottom part with the house and trees.  I've then added some pretend snow inside and glass glitter snowflakes on the outside.  The bauble is topped with a stunning diamante snowflake from The Ribbon Girl.
 Here's a close up of the bauble.  It was quite a job getting the scene inside I can tell you!
 I have used an older Christmas tree stamp from Magnolia, painted with distress inks and topped with gems.
 On one of the panels I have placed a Christmas message and a heart: both stamps are from Magnolia.
 All of the Tildas have been painted with Distress Inks and Stickles added here and there.
 I have only attached them to one side of the fold so that the can fold up into the bag but not be ruined.
 This is one of my favourite Christmas Tildas.  She is so beautiful don't you think?
 On the final panel is this sweet Tilda who looks like she's about to hang a decoration on the tree.
 Underneath the bauble there is a doily.
I hope you like it!  Now it is time for you to pop over to Suzi to see her gorgeous creation!  Enjoy the rest of the hop and thanks for looking! x
