A gift for Mother

Hello I am here to day to show you a gift I have made for my mum for Mother's day
I wanted to make a bit more than a card and this fitted perfectly.
My mum means the world to me and I have really enjoyed making this for her.
I would  like to enter it in to the challenges at
Craft you passion-Anything goes
Dream valley-Mother's day

The box is easy to make and you can put candles in like I have or chocolates if you wanted.
My mum loves candles so I have bought some yankee candles and 6 fit perfectly.
The idea is not mine but came from here, there is lots of lovely tutorials.

The stamp is one of the new releases from Sarah kay called Barbette sewing
all the new ones are gorgeous.
I have used a Tim Holtz die to cut out the cotton reel and used a charm and button to go with the sewing theme.

Copic colours are-

Face E000 E00 E11 R20
Hair E50 E53
Browns E44 E43 E42 E41 e40
Reds R22 R24 R27

Well I must go lots of things I need to get on with
Thanks for looking
