Magnolia Advent Calendar - Day 28

Hi Everyone,

Merry Christmas!!!!

Even tough it's pass December 25th, but we're having so much fun doing the Magnolia Advent Calendar, we're going to do it until December 31st. There's still so much present to give.

This time I'm making a lantern, here's the photos (beware!! It's a lot of photos because I wanted to show you since I'm so proud of it). The pattern and tutorial I use is from the super talented Norma, you can see her tutorial here.

Here's on all four sides:



Here's when it's lit (I found an electronic candle on a one-price store, so it will avoid any burn)




Details:
Stamps: Helylle Tilda, Edwin med Lykta, "Merry Christmas from our family to yours" text.
Paper: Crate Paper Peppermint Collection, Red tracing paper (which I have no idea where I got it, but it's there laying around my desk waiting to be used).
Embellishment: Magnolia flowers, Maya Road Snowflake Transparencies-White and Vintage Wood Snowflakes (I'm going nuts over these snowflakes, I love them a lot), Berries flowers small gold Pinecone from local craft store
Coloring: Copic: Skin E11 E02 E00 E000 E0000 R20, Dress Shoes Hair R39 R29 R24 R22 E49 E47 E44 E43 E42 E41 E40
Other: Magnolia Doohickey Tilda's Tag, Lovely Fence, Mini Doily, DI Walnut Stain.

Now... if you want a very yummy Christmas present sent directly from Magnolia Sweden, all you have to do is put your name in the blue froggy below, it will randomly draw a winner tomorrow at 4 pm Western Indonesian Time (WIB) GMT+7 December 29th.





Thank you so much for stopping by, have a Happy New Year 2012 everyone!!!
Hugs from Indonesia,
Irene Daryanto

    But I have a question. In the latest Magnolia Ink Magazine there was a box with a card and that we can download the description of the box from your site but I can't find it.

    Have a great New Year!
