LLC Retreat Christmas Bell Marci Star Box

LLC Retreat, Project #25
This is a project designed by Irina of La-la Land Crafts: are you surprised?   This adorable 3D project was a delight to make at the La-la Land crafts Retreat.  We started off having to paint the Star paperboard in blue acrylic paint, then randomly painted some white acrylic over the blue spots.  The outside of the star box and decorative papers supplied are slightly sponged with brown ink.  The star box is 6-1/2" x 6-1/2" x 1-1/2". Dies used for this project are: Christmas Tree, Poinsettias, Open Leaf Flourish, Christmas Hill, and Stitched Circles. The Christmas Bell Marci, all the La-la Land Crafts dies, and Star Box are available from the La-la Land Crafts on line store here. Note the Christmas Tree is dusted with some white acrylic paint on the edges.
Christmas Bell Marci is adorable. Luckily we received colors to use to color her with our Copics.  I did make her a Brunette.
The Poinsettias are brushed with some white acrylic paint, placed on top of the light sponged Open Leaf  Flourish,  then attached to the box using mini glue dots.
The light dusted white acrylic painted Christmas Hill die cut in green card stock is behind the Stitched Circles peeking behind Christmas Bell Marci.
