Christmas Bling at Fashionista

Today I have a little something for Christmas to share.
I created this tree by first making a cone out of paper, then after giving the cuttlebug a good workout, I have covered the cone with one of Magnolia's leaf die cuts and tiny flowers and finished decorating it with some handmade bows, bling and shabby white distress stain on the leaves. The star is a stick pin, I have so many of these I was pleased to get to use it. Tilda has been coloured with copics.
The Fashionista Challenge blog's new challenge is 'Christmas Bling'
I was going to make a box to sit it all on, but opted instead to create a display box instead.
The top is decorated with Magnolia red and white berries, white cherry blossoms and a Prima Shabby Chic resin treasure. (the heart and scroll)

so there is two prizes up for grabs.
I must admit the my mojo wasn't up to par this week, and have gone for something quite simple.
It's a little lolly box and it turned out super cute!
The box is a Sizzix Box, Carry All die, which I have had quite awhile and I love the design. I used Spellbinders dies to cut the oval window and add some acetate. The box is a little under 10cms wide so I have used Mini Kitchen Tilda stamp and the Mini Yummy for your Tummy text stamp.
White flowers were a punch and the pink from a Magnolia die.
