Poinsettia Christmas Card With Tutorial

I love making my own Christmas Cards. This is a little tutorial to make an easy Holiday card.



You will need:


  • scissors
  • adhesive
  • paper leaves
  • 2 red die cut daisies (red patterned paper looks cool too)
  • a little scrap from the red paper that's bigger than the daisy center
  • yellow or gold bling. They could be stickers or little brads.
Instructions:

1.  Using your scissors, cut the tips of each of the petals of ONE of the daisy die cuts. See the bottom petals of the picture to the left.


2.  Take the second flower (I'm using a blue flower for the tutorial but this one is red too.) and from half-way down each petal, cut the petals into a point.
 

3. Fold each of the flower petals from both of the flowers toward you. Then, use your adhesive and layer first with your scrap piece, then your larger flower, then your smaller flower.

The smaller flower petals should go between the larger. This will hide your scrap piece.

4. Add your bling to the center and adhere flower to card. Glue a couple paper leaves under the poinsettia.

Here's my example:
Paper Leaves: Prima
Sentiment: Hero Arts ClearDesigns mounted on K and Co paper
Cardstock: Bazzill
Background Paper: Cosmo Cricket
Ink: StaZon
Bling: Me And My Big Ideas Icons

OMG, your tutorial is awesome--and one that I need. I am currently making a small desk calendar, and wanted to come up with a way to do pointsettas, because it will go with my spring stamp I am using in a contest. This is so perfect for my calendar. The tutorial is so well done. Can you do a turkey? LOL.

That is awesome! You could make them a littel bigger and use them on packages instead of bows too! Cool!
