A Christmas Story #3 - Christmas Box ♥ Decorating the Christmas Tree ♥

Hi there! 
Today I want to share one more creation for last year's Christmas issue for Magnolia, A Christmas Story.
A Christmas box with a little scene inside of four Tilda's decoration the Christmas tree.
Here is a list of the stamps used:
Glittering Tilda, Ribbon Tilda (Sweet Christmas Dream Collection 2011), Tilda Hanging Ornaments (Merry Little Christmas 2010), Tilda with Christmas Cracker, Christmas Background (So Jolly & Under the Mistletoe 2009).

   Here a closer look on the top of the box.

And now a look at the inside of the box.
The papers are from Maja Design, and sheets from an old book for the Christmas tree.

Here are the embellishments used: Velvet ribbon, Ornate plates-Tim Holtz, Twine, Flower Stams, Doily, Pearls, Romantic Lace,Vintage Flowers & Leaf, Christmas Pionsettias-Magnolia DooHickeys, Word Window Punch-Stampin' Up.

For the Christmas tree, I draw myself a tree-template, cut out around 10 trees from an old book by laying the template on the sheets, and I cut them all out at the same time. Then I stapled the trees in the middle, and folded the papers outward. 

A closer look at the images: 
The images are coloured with Distress Ink-reinkers and Distress Markers. 
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, the cheeks are coloured with a mix of Tattered Rose and Aged Mahogany. Under her fringe I have coloured with Markers-Tea Dye, just to make a nice shadow on Tilda's forehead.
Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Dress: Aged Mahogany, I have also used Black Soot on the darkest spots. For the green colour I have used Pine Needles and Peeled Paint.

I have also added: Star Dust, Platinum-Stickles, Snow Paint-Panduro, White Gesso.

I have attached a pop-up ornament outside the box. 
I found the tutorial on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alsA_Bn9TnQ&list=LLEgN1coakXaCh3x7CfZZhFQ&feature=mh_lolz , made by StampWithTami.com.
