Mini Magnolia's for Christmas

You can click pictures to enlarge

Hi Guys n Gals,  Well you are either going to love this post or hate it!!!  I've just made my first Christmas stocking filler gift for Christmas. Sorry about all the pictures but I wanted you to see it from all angles. 

The gift box is acetate and I cut a 12" x 2.5" piece of card and covered it with Christmas paper I had from last year.  I then attached it so that the front and sides of the carton could be a window.

I filled it with some beautiful pink, white, cream roses and gardenia's from Wild Orchid Crafts along with a few hand made organza flowers. The full recipe for my card is below this post.
I've used Magnolia Mini stamps, Edwin I received in a candy from the lovely Tasha and the sweet Flying Tilda from the Fairy Tale 2010 collection. They are utterly adorable. A little different to colour because of their size.  I must admit to making a few mistakes with the first attempt but soon got used to it.  I'll be using these mini stamps a lot in my Christmas creations.

Anyhow this was made for a few challenge so without further ado here they are.

Just Magnolia: Have the theme Anything Goes with the option of Lace ( don't know if they will include the Lace border punch as lace) fingers crossed.
Tip Top Tuesday:  Would like us to Wrap it up in Ribbon. I've wrapped  the carton in White and silver Christmas ribbon.
