Gifts under the tree

Hi guys,
Time for the Totally Tilda challenge and this time it's
Sitting Tilda
so any Tilda that is sitting, remember it must be a Tilda as Edwin and other magnolia images are only allowed if accompanied with Tilda,
sorry, lots of piccies grab a brew lol,
Tilda  is coloured with my copics, fussy cut out then sat down in front of  my hand created 3D tree, I did a tutorial on how to do this here or it's on my extra pages at the top under tutorials, too
It's made using a Tim Holtz  Alterations pine tree die and then I sprayed it when the glue had dried with glimmer mist pearl and then dosed it with glitter, to finish it off I used a red pearl string from
 the pretty little ribbon shop
the papers are by Magnolia,

You may be able to see it's  the inside of an exploding box and this is the outside lol,
Edwin with sack is masked onto the welcome to a sweet Christmas image and again coloured with my copics, I've used liquid appliqué for the fur trim, the snow effect above the door frame is a Viva decor pearl pen in ice white, from MCH
 The box lid has another paper by Magnolia on the top then I've taken a Marianne sleigh die, added a strip of acetate behind to make it stand up then attached a larger strip to a reindeer die to make it seem as if he's flying, why I'm explaining this when you can see it is a bit daft but hey!
the gorgeous flowers are from The Ribbon Girl and the pretty little ribbon shop, links below
Pixie Tilda is again coloured with my copics, cut out and layered onto the side of the box with pinflair glue,
This is on the other side of my box and is a Marianne die cut out in white card then coloured with vintage photo distress ink, the grass doe is a Doo Hickey, this has been given the Snow Tex treatment,
The back of the box has a Memory Box Crystal snowflake die, cut out twice layered together at angles and then has a Prima crystal on top too,
Back to the inside view, to keep the sides plain I just added a few phrases like , friends, family, imagine etc, and made a Merry Christmas one for the front using a Magnolia stamp stamped onto Tim Holtz Idea-ology kraft Glassine,
