My little project

My newest project... a new jewelery box! I was a bit tired of my old one and I thought it didn't have a good structure. It was a nice project but I'm NEVER doing this again. LOL. It took me two complete days to finish it!!
First I took the wrong drawer-openers, so I couldn't get the drawers open. I had to redo the whole thing again with splitpens. What an assignment!!!
Then the drawers on top of it are a bit too big, but I really needed them for some earrings that wouldn't fit in the little boxes.
And at last I made some sort of easel thinghy to make everything stand straight.
Ow well, at least I managed to do something else than a card :)
And I've used a new Magnolia stamp and the technique of paper piecing again. Man, what is this stamp great to use paper piecing on!! This was my favourite bit of it all.
So, I hope you like it. Me... I have a new jewelry box that finally separates my earrings (can you believe that I still had to put two or three pieces of earrings at one box. Paper addict? Try earring-addict! LOL).
Ow ow, and I tried out a tutorial to make my own flower. You like? I do!! I LOVE IT!
Thanks for looking!

With this project, I can cover two challenges:
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge: Sugar and spice and everything nice (for the second time allready)
Just Magnolia: Fold it!

I keep hearing on the challenges to turn of the word verification. I have absolutely no idea if this is the case on my blog. Can somebody tell me if you have to do this when you leave a comment? (yeah, I'm not a computerwiz... :( )

Stamp: Magnolia
Colours: Paper piecing and Copics
Flowers: home-made and Prima Flowers (Got dots) and e-lines I think
Paper: MME, Laundry Line, some DCMV
Extra: some metal charm I got for free, and some brads
