Woven Box

Hi, everyone!  It's Kelli here and today I have a woven box to share with you!  I had this idea to weave a box out of card stock and this is what came of it!  I was originally thinking of an Easter basket, but instead chose to use the adorable Magnolia - Koala Hug stamp which gave me the feeling of her being on a safari, haha!  I'm not sure you actually see koalas on a safari, maybe an Australian one, but that's besides the point.  ;)
I stamped Tilda and her Koala Bear in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copics:
hair:  E31, Y35, Y15, Y11
skin: YR00, E00, R20 for cheeks
hat and boots:  E29, E27, E25, E23
shirt and hat band:  V15, V12
dress:  Y35, Y15, Y11
koala:  C5, C3, C9 for nose and R20 for ears
I kept the extra detail minimal because of all the stuff going on with the box itself, but I did add a few mini silver brads to her shoes, a linen thread bow and some Glossy Accents to the koala's nose.
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great day!  :)
