Mo's Dream Team Blog Hop



The third Thursday in the month means it's Mo's Dream Team blog hop time and the theme this month is "Make a Gift" and was chosen by the lovely Lori who is our host this month and the start of the hop. If you're already hopping you should have arrived here from the amazing Alice's blog.

I've created a gift box and have popped some jewellery and chocolates inside it for a little Christmas gift. I did buy some Ferrero Rocher chocolates to pop in but they were a bit too tall for the "shelves" so  I had to go shopping again and bought some Dove chocolates and made little dividers for them. In the meantime I managed to console myself with my bonus treat - LOL.

The box was made using THIS tutorial by Heather Perreaux I found - it's called a "Secret Box". I used Mo's gorgeous Lil Elf Pipa on the top - these guys are great at ANY size and since this box is only 3"x3" there wasn't a lot of space to play with.

Now it's time to hop on along to marvellous Mina's blog. Here's the hop list in case you get lost along the way...

And if you're after more fabulous Mo inspiration from the Dream Team don't forget to check out the regular postings on our DT BLOG.

Copics used - R20, R11, E11, E00, E000, N3, N1, YR23, Y19, Y11, BG15, BG13, BG11, E51, E50, E18, E13, R89, R85, R83, R46, G29, G28, G24, G21 - note I coloured Pipa in the BG's and then thought she needed to be "greener" so went over the top of all the BG with G21. Don't be afraid to experiment with your copics.
