Wow, I can't believe how many emails I got last night about my poinsettia box…I'm so glad so many people liked it!! I have seen poinsettias all over the web, so I figured everyone had seen them or tried them before…I have no clue the different sites I saw them at, I just made my leaves from how the finished flowers looked, so I can't really point you in the direction of instructions. But, if I'm stepping on anyone's toes, please let me know if you're the creator of this flower and I'm happy to give credit 🙂
I took a couple of quick pictures to show how I made the leaves, I used what used to be called the small oval punch, but now we have a large oval punch and a large oval punch…so I'm talking about the smallest one SU! offers, #43 on page 202/203. Of course you can use larger ovals too and just make bigger poinsettias, that's my next plan 🙂
First I punched a small oval, then drew lines in it with my bone folder like this (it doesn't need to be perfect lines, because lines on poinsettias aren't perfect):
Thanks for stopping by!
