A little bit of Magic

I found it, Finally. I really need to keep everything in one place from now on.
Anyway here is Leah's post with an easy peasy tutorial for the Magic box.
Hope you give it try, I know I am going to try another one.
Oh wow, I was busy last night trying out something I loved the minute I saw it on some blog ages ago.
It always looked so complicated to do so although I drooled every time I saw it I never attempted it.
Well all that has changed now, and thanks to Leah I am totally hooked.

My habit of jotting things down on scrap pieces of paper is going to be my downfall I tell you. I did write down her blog, but can't find it right now. I will edit this post as soon as I find it.

She made this so easy to understand and you have to see the beauties she made.

Now this one is pretty plain because I wanted to try it out first, oh and sorry for the picture quality, but i really
couldn't wait to show that I DID IT.
Yay me. LOL

As you can see above, I messed up with the birthday stamp, I should have taken into account that the lid would cover it. That
was my first "Duh" moment.. I just stamped this swirl all around the bottom on the other three sides.

And here she is opened up. "Duh" moment #2 is hidden behind that piece of paper. Yup you guessed it, I was not paying attention and adhered the second box to the wrong side. I wasn't too worried though as this was just a practice run for me.

I also made that bow and a few charms that I will post as soon as I find my new batteries for the camera.
Hope you had a great weekend
Thanks for stopping by
