twistin time is here

Today i have my first, yes my first none card project. Yipee. I have wanted to do something like this for ages, then i came across a brilliant tutorial which i just had to do. You can find the tutorial i used HERE.
This is a twist top box. As this is my first christmas of making my own christmas cards and gifts i thought i would my this for my mum. I will make my dad one as well, but to be honest this has taken me a few days to complete due to my M.E. For some reason i have had headaches all this week. It has been a real pain, i have been popping so many pain killers on top of the tablets i already take, i think i may start to rattle soon.

Are you ready for lots of photos????

Image is from magnolia tilda on ornament. I have used stickles for the glitter called crystal. I have also covered the ornament in glossy accents to try and give it a little bit of a glass look. Tilda as always has been coloured with distress inks.

Image is from magnolia christmas party tilda. Again i have used stickles for the glitter and coloured her in with distress inks. Im afraid the pictures done quite do this justice.

This is a gem set that i have had for ages. I'm afraid i don't know where it is from. The papers are from DCWV called rose tinted christmas.

This is the bit that took me the longest. But i think its worth it, i didn't want just plain white showing at the top.

I have put purple tissue paper inside(i didn't have pink) I have glittered all round the edges off the box with stickles cotton candy.

This is the box open.
