DT - Midway Marvelous Magnolia - Ribbon or Bow

Hi, hope you're all enjoying our current challenge over at
Ribbon or Bow.
I'm here to remind you that there is almost a full week left to enter your beautiful creations, so what are you waiting for?

The project I've got to show you today was something I made for the last Magnolia Ink competition and with that in mind I created a summer holiday file comprising of a box file and three divider cards. As it's a lot of work and too many photos for one post I've decided to split it into four posts over the next four days. So today's post is dedicated to the box file.

I coloured Magnolia's Welcome to a lovely home with distress inks, postmark stamps also Magnolia. DooHickeys used: antique lace, lovely fence, foliage.
Flowers are WOC, the brad is Stampin Up, main shape is created using a Go Kreate die and the papers are Maja design. The ribbon is wired and I love it as it can be shaped any way you want it  - happy days for me as I can usually be found wrestling with ribbon for ages trying to achieve the perfect bow lol!

I made a box to be sandwiched between the two Go Kreate shapes with an opening at the side for the cards.

I splashed plenty of white acrylic paint about!

The house represents holiday cottages past, present and future that we visit and use as a base when on holiday. The cards inside have Tilda doing just a few of the things that we like to do as a family (and not just when we are on holiday or in the summer either - although they are a lot more fun to do on a warm summers day!)

.....and there's a sneak peak of the cards inside. I'll be back tomorrow with the first of them!
I do hope you can join us with a ribbon or bow somewhere on your Magnolia creation. If you have time take a look at what my teamies have made, you wont be disappointed!
