Scatoline con candela (riciclo)

Ho preparato sei scatolette che contengono una candelina rossa a forma di stella.
Sono piccoli regalini per altrettante colleghe. I miei preparativi per Natale vanno molto a rilento, il tempo non mi basta mai e avrei bisogno di giornate di 48 ore ciascuna...!!  :(
Ho riciclato le scatolette delle pastiglie Valda (sono caramelle per la gola che compro spesso); queste piccole scatole mi piacciono molto perchè sono di un bel metallo verde luccicante e all'interno sono dorate.
Per coprire le scritte sul coperchio ho usato dei cerchi di foam glitterato. Per coprire le scritte sul retro invece ho incollato dei cerchi tagliati da avanzi di cartoncino bianco e ci ho timbrato Babbo Natale con gli auguri (il brand del timbro è Wiler).
All'interno delle scatoline ho inserito delle candeline rosse glitterate a forma di stella.
Per le Poinsettie ho usato dei piccoli avanzi di vellum (per quella rossa un avanzo di cartoncino) e il bellissimo set di timbri + fustelle Heartfelt-Sparkling Poinsettia.
Le timbrate sul vellum le ho embossate con polvere bianca. Ho colorato i fiori sul retro con i Graph'it markers, li ho spruzzati con acqua e sagomati, li ho composti a strati e ho aggiunto del glitter trasparente; al centro dei fiori ho incollato delle palline dorate che ho staccato da una catenella.
Ho aggiunto alcune piccole decorazioni glitterate (palline di Natale e stelline).
Sui bordi delle scatoline ho messo del nastro adesivo glitterato e/o del washi tape.
Con questo progetto intendo partecipare ai seguenti challenge:

WOW WOW WOW!!! These are just amazing Alice!! I just love the idea of recycling the little tins and you have really given these ones an amazing transformation! I so love your gorgeous poinsettias on the tops. The sheer materials combined with the glitter is gorgeous and festive! I also adore the little ornament embellies, how wonderful!! Your coworkers will be thrilled to receive such a beautiful and thoughtful gift!!

Hope all is well with you and you are having great Christmas weather! We finally got a couple of good frosts and we even had a couple of millimetres of snow, although it didn't last long. I ran quick as a bunny outside to grab some pics! They are saying more snow for Monday night, so keep your fingers crossed that I wake up to a Winter Wonderland Tuesday morning. sending hugs my friend :)

I'm back again, Alice! I got the robot verification but it was for photos of sushi - it was the same in English as Italian - so I lucked out! Your poinsettias are absolutely gorgeous! I love all the different colours! What a cute idea to recycle the little tins for candles! The washi tape is a brilliant idea and I especially love the sparkly one! You make such a cute gift for all of your colleagues, my friend!
