Poppies and Little Miss Bitty Magic Box

Hi all! Things have calmed down a bit, just a bit from the holiday's and life's dramas! This magic box project has been sitting on my table for some time in pieces but I couldn't get it "there". It needed something else and then it hit me, put Little Miss Bitty in the middle of the flowers! Perfect fit. She is cute as a bug, and she is colored as a lady bug, perfect for the red floral punch poppies. Fred She Said Little Miss Bitty can be found here. And, out new Design Team will be having blog hops and other great new additions so check back often to see what is new!
I fell in love with the little magic boxes that fall open with a surprise inside. When the lid is taken off the box the side panels fall open and the flowers "dance", and continue to dance with the slightest movement of the air. They are so versatile and my list of box designs to make is getting longer and longer! You will see another soon with quilling that I have just made.
It is really easy to make and you can see the instructions for the box here, as well as some really beautiful examples. I knew that these boxes would be perfect for floral punch flowers and now with FSS designs! If you make some of these cute magic boxes post a link in the comments below, I'd love to see yours!
I have had a couple of questions and I will answer them on a new post called "Questions and Answers" that will list all of them and any new ones in one place for easy reference. Well off to create more projects with paper, glue and scissors!
Comments and project links are always welcome!

Hugs, Tracey
