Magnolia-licious DT - Spring Blog Hop

Welcome to the Magnolia-licious Spring Blog Hop!  If you've arrived here from Katie's blog then you're on the right track.  If not, and you would like to join in with the hop then please visit the Magnolia-licious challenge blog to start.  For my project I have altered a gift tube my husband received a present in recently.  I've covered it with paper from Magnolia.
The lace I've used top and bottom, the ribbon, the purple gypsophillia and pink daisies are from The Ribbon Girl. 
 The rest of the flowers are from my stash.
I've stamped the Eiffel Tower stamp from Magnolia onto acetate so that I could sit it over the lace without detracting from it.
I've added more flowers and a heart pin at the bottom of the tin...
...and two gorgeous butterflies cut with the Butterfly Doohickey Die DH87.
On the back of the gift tin I've added a panel for a message and added the sweet Tilda with Floating Hearts #3047 coloured with copics.
Love this Tilda, she's so adorable!
I hope you've enjoyed your visit.  Now it is time to hop on over to Becky's blog to continue the hop.  Thanks for looking! x

Jane what a beautiful transformation of the gift tube! The Magnolia paper is just gorgeous and the addition of the lace top and bottom really gives a delightful foundation to all your beautiful flowers! The Little Tilda is so precious with the little hearts - a fitting prop for the message pannel. Love the huge bow and the butterfly - a totally gorgeous project. Where to we go from here? You forgot a name...hugs...Barb
