Gorjuss Nutella Jar!!!

WOW its sunny again here today. Mind you I am feeling really cold. Think its cause of the big Tree blocking the sun in my back garden.
I made a jar the other week for pens as I am always loosing them so this one is going to be for my scissors. Think I need a lock on it as Tom is terrible for making "Cut and Stick" pictures and my scissors all disappear. I have used a Nutella jar this time.
I have paper pieced my Gorjuss Girl to have Purple boots and her Dress is Gorjuss paper too.
I hand stitched the top and bottom of the paper too. Really want a sewing machine but low in the priorities list at the mo!!!
This is my first go at making my own flowers!!! I sort of copied Hels Sheridan's tutorial in this months Craft Stamper but she had hers dipped in UTEE and boy were they stunning. Mmm Still need some work but looks quite pretty. Think I may have used a wee bit too much glue for the pearl though!
This is for 6 Challenges!!! Wowzers!!
Here they are.

Nutella Jar
Gorjuss Papers
Gorjuss Girl Stamp (Just a Girl) Coloured with Promarkers.
Martha Stewart Edge Punch
Embroidery Thread from DMC
Tim Holtz Distress ink in Milled Lavender and Mustard Seed
Perfect Pearls In Heirloom Gold
Marianne Designs Flower Die
Elusive Image Text stamp
Pearl from stash
Shimmer on Gorjuss Girls Dress and Hair Clasp - Sakura Pen

Hope you like it.

By having everything in a proper place I am de stressing my life a bit. I hate when I loose things and it takes ages to find them. I am tidying up the craft stash just now too so I know where all the bits and pieces are. Found some stuff I forgot I had yesterday!!! Brilliant.
Thanks in advance for your comments.
