Poinsettia Card With Tutorial

To make the poinsettia for the card, you 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 a bigger than the daisy center
  • yellow or gold bling

First, 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.

Then, take the second flower. About half-way down each petal, cut the petals into a point. See example. Now, 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.

Finally, add your bling 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!

My friend and I were recently discussing about the prevalence of technology in our day to day lives. Reading this post makes me think back to that discussion we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as memory gets less expensive, the possibility of uploading our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could encounter in my lifetime.
