Finto barattolo con poinsettia

Natale si avvicina velocemente e io sono in ritardo!!! In questo contenitore inserirò alcuni torroncini morbidi per fare un piccolo regalo.
La fustella usata per questo barattolo è la stessa che ho usato qui: Sizzix Scoreboards XL - Canning Jar 3D. La struttura è di cartone di riciclo; la carta vintage (a cui ho sfumato i bordi con il DI Vintage Photo) è un foglio che mi aveva regalato la talentuosa Pia.
La poinsettia è di vellum, timbrata con il Versamark, embossata con polvere bianca e tagliata (kit stamps + dies Heartfelt Sparkling Poinsettia); l'ho colorata sul retro con i markers Graph'it, l'ho sfumata sui bordi con i Distress Inks e coperta di vernice glitterata, come ho fatto per le scatoline di metallo portacandela. Al centro ho messo alcune perle dorate.
I rametti sono tagliati con la fustella Pine Twigs-Creative Expressions di Sue Wilson, colorati con i Distress inks e poi glitterati. Ho aggiunto un filo di twine dorato e un campanellino.
Per coprire il cartone sui lati ho messo del semplice washi tape con stelline dorate.
Sul retro ho usato gli stessi rametti Creative Expressions, tre pigne tagliate con la fustella Pinecone di Elizabeth Craft (la parte sottostante l'ho colorata con il DI Vintage Photo), il fiore più piccolo della fustella Tattered Florals di Tim Holtz ricavato dalla scatola color oro dei Ferrero Rocher :D , una stellina glitterata color oro al centro del fiore e una stella bianca traforata che ho tagliato con un punch. Il tappo fa parte della stessa fustella Sizzix ed è colorato con i Distress Inks.

Con questo progetto intendo partecipare ai seguenti challenge:

Absolutely wonderful Alice!! I just love this idea for a gift bag, so unique and festive! The poinsettia is just incredible, there is a magical feeling to it with the sheer appearance, glittery surface, and soft tones. I would put a million of them on a tree and then light it up, wow, wouldn't that be amazing!! Love that you decorated the back too, those pinecones are so fun!

Well I hope all is going well your festive preparations. I am completely finished for the year. My blog is posted until Jan 4th and nothing for me to do now but enjoy all the animals in the snow!! lol. hugs and happy weekend my friend!

Hello, dear Alice! Your jar box looks AMAZING! I love the gorgeous sparkly poinsettia and the gold trim! The back is just as beautiful as the front! The pine cones are so cute! I love all the die-cuts you've used! This will be a wonderful gift for anyone! I have been doing a lot of commenting today and now I am getting the robot photo verification so I will be back tomorrow to look at the rest of your projects. When the questions are non-English, I don't know which photos to choose haha!

You've made a really pretty vintage looking jar. The paper I sent you adds an elegant touch to it all. It's a well decorated jar, you've got such a good eye for details...I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I celebrated with hubby and my sister's family, the children had chickenpox but it still went very well. Yesterday we doesn't home, quietly and comfortably.
