Paper Poinsettias for Christmas

I love making paper poinsettias for Christmas cards, gifts, home decor and tags. Sadly, I will put my die set away as this will be my last poinsettia card for Christmas 2019.  A couple of weeks ago I created a card a white on white card with the same layout using the same dies and sentiment but with the poinsettia and holly placement on the top of the card.  I love adding a red layer adds such a festive feel to this card. 

For this card I used the Rubbernecker Poinsettia #2, Holly, Nested Deckle Rectangles and May the Joys sentiment.

  • Apply Versamark to the stamp and stamp the white deckle layer.
  • Apply super fine gold embossing powder and heat with heat gun.
  • Attach the red layer to the card base using ATG adhesive.

The Handmade Paper Poinsettia and Holly

  • Use red and green cardstock to cut the poinsettia sections. Note:  I like to create one or two green poinsettia sections for the main base of the flower.
  • Cut the holly sections using green and red cardstock. Attach the red berries to the holly using glossy accents.
  • Lay the holly sections on a molding pad and use the leaf tool. 
  • Place the red and green poinsettia flower layers face down on a molding pad and use a large round stylus to shape the flower petals.
  • Place the red and green poinsettia flower layers face up on a molding pad and use a small tipped stylus to push down in the center of each flower to push the petals up.
  • Attach the flower layers together using glossy accents. 
  • Attach pre made gold Nuvo Crystal Drops to the flower center using glossy accents.

Arrange the Poinsettia and Holly

  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the poinsettia and attach it to the upper corner of the sentiment layer.
  • Tuck the holly branches under the poinsettia and attach them using glossy accents.

Paper poinsettias for Christmas are perfect on cards, gifts and home decor.

Make a Paper Poinsettia Wreath for a Holiday Gift

Since Today I’m sharing a paper poinsettia wreath as part of my “anything but a card” series.  I learned wreath making from my mom working in her flower shop when I was a girl and I have made many over the years.  Since I don’t have much opportunity to do floral design with fresh flowers and foliage now  I find it very satisfying to create with paper.   I found this six inch grapevine wreath at Michaels for .49 cents and thought it would be beautiful decorated with paper poinsettias, holly and pine branches.  Now….I can already hear lots of you saying that you can’t design….or….you’ve never made a wreath before.  Let me walk you through the steps to show you how easy it really is. 

For my wreath I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Poinsettia #2, Holly and Greenery #2

You can see all the details about how I made this paper poinsettia wreath on my blog. Click through to see the details.

The Handmade Paper Poinsettia and Holly

  • Use red, green and yellow cardstock to cut the poinsettia sections. Note:  I like to create one or two green poinsettia sections using the largest flower die for the main base of the flower.
  • Place the red and green poinsettia flower layers face down on a molding pad and use a large round stylus to shape the flower petals.
  • Place the red and green poinsettia flower layers face up on a molding pad and use a small tipped stylus to push down in the center of each flower to push the petals up.
  • Attach the flower layers together using glossy accents. 
  • Form tiny yellow flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad and attach them to the flower center using glossy accents.  Note:  I love to use my reverse tweezers when working with tiny die cut parts and pieces.  They are like having a third hand.

The Holly and Evergreen Branches

  • Cut several holly sets using green and red cardstock and several evergreen branch sections using green cardstock..
  • Attach the red berries to the holly using glossy accents.
  • Lay the holly sections on the molding pad and score and form the leaves using the leaf tool. 

Click over to my blog to see how I made this paper poinsettia wreath.

Creating the Wreath

When I make paper flower projects for my card fronts I always attach my flowers to the card base using glossy accents.  For my wreath I used hot glue to to attach the flowers and foliage.  I knew the hot glue would adhere to the vines much better than using liquid glue.  A word of caution……be careful when using hot glue.  It can really burn your fingers. 

  • Wrap the ribbon around the wreath and attach both ends in place using hot glue.
  • Begin by attaching the first poinsettia on the wreath using hot glue.
  • Place the second poinsettia one inch apart from the first poinsettia and attach with hot glue.
  • Attach the third poinsettia one inch apart from the second and attach with hot glue.

Holly #1 Die Cut 5162-08D

To create an even balance of holly around the poinsettias I always attached the two larger sections together at each step of design.

  • Begin tucking the two larger holly sections under the top poinsettia and attach using  hot glue.
  • Move down to the second poinsettia and tuck two larger holly sections under the top petals and attach in place.
  • Repeat the step above at the top of the third poinsettia.
  • Move to the other side of the third poinsettia and tuck the two larger holly sections under the petals but going out in the opposite direction from the other sets you’ve attached.
  • Note:  when I had completed attaching the two larger holly sections at each step I did find a couple of spots that needed an additional holly branch to fill in. 
  • Finish by tucking several evergreen branches in between the holly and attach using hot glue.  You can see in the photo above how all of the poinsettias and foliage are attached to the top of the wreath base.

 

Come check out how I made this paper poinsettia wreath.

I think this paper poinsettia wreath would be the perfect holiday gift for a friend, your child’s teacher, the mail person……or anyone on your gift lift. They don’t take lots of time and are really fun to make.  You can make smaller wreaths as well.  I saw them sized at four, three and two inches.  Just pare down the size of your flowers, and use only one or two instead of three.  There is tons of paper poinsettia wreath inspiration on Pinterest. Thank you for all of your input regarding my :anything but a card” question earlier this week.  I sure do appreciate your responses and I hope you find today’s wreath inspiring.  Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.

Handmade Paper Poinsettia

There is something so special about a bright red handmade paper poinsettia arranged with holly on an all white card base and paired with a simple gold embossed sentiment.  This is such an elegant card and was easy to make and would be perfect to make several at a time for family and friends.  I used  the Poinsettia #2 paired with Holly, Deckle Frame and May the Joys sentiment.

Poinsettia Paper Flowers Basket

My project today is a poinsettia paper flowers basket with a double matted frame made using dies by Rubbernecker Stamps.  For this arrangement I only used the smallest flower section in the Poinsettia #2 set and paired it with the Baskets, Holly #1 and Greenery #1.  The frame was made using the Nested Rectangle Small Stitch set.  I used to make almost all my cards with frames like this and I had forgotten how much I like they way they look.

Come see my poinsettia paper flowers basket.

The Double Matted Frame

  • Line the dies and and cardstock on the cutting platform and run through the machine.
  • Cut the large frame using white cardstock and the mat using red cardstock.
  • Attach the two frames together using strips of mounting tape.
  • Use an additional layer of mounting tape on the back of the frames to attach them to the card base.
  • Note:  I like separating the frames with mounting tape because I think they look far more interesting than being attached flat together and adds another element of dimension.

Come see my elegant poinsettia paper flowers basket.

The Poinsettia Paper Flowers Basket

  • Cut the basket and foliage using green cardstock, the flowers using red cardstock and the tiny flower centers using yellow cardstock.
  • Place the flowers face down on the molding pad and form the flowers using the large round stylus.
  • Turn the flowers face up on the molding pad and push down in the center of each using the small tipped stylus.
  • Attach the flower sections together using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the basket in behind the frame and attach to the card base using mounting tape.
  • Apply glossy accents to the poinsettias and attach them to the card base.
  • Tuck pieces of holly and evergreen branches under the poinsettias and attach them using glossy accents.

Come see my lovely poinsettia paper flowers basket.

Gold Embossed Vellum Poinsettia

Good Wednesday morning.  Today I’m sharing a gold embossed vellum poinsettia card.  I shared a white embossed vellum poinsettia card a couple of days ago and loved how the white splatter looked on on the petals.  I decided gold embossed splatter would look pretty on the white vellum and for this project I gold embossed the foliage and eyelet border as well.  The layout is exactly the same as my earlier card but the gold adds an extra touch of elegance.  My photos are a little over bright because it is always hard for me to get good pictures of gold embossing.  I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Splatter Background, Poinsettia #2 and Holly #1 and Borders #1.

Come see how I made this gold embossed vellum poinsettia card.

The Decorative Layer

  • Cut the decorative border layer using white cardstock.
  • Apply masking tape along the eyelet border, apply versa and gold embossing powder and heat with the heat gun.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back and attach to the card base.

Come see how I made this lovely gold embossed vellum poinsettia card.

The Vellum Poinsettia and Holly

  • Stamp the Splatter Background on a piece of white vellum using versa and emboss with gold embossing powder.
  • Cut the flower sections, form them gently with a stylus and molding pad and attach the layers using glossy accents.
  • Cut two layers of the largest flower and two sections of holly using white cardstock, apply versa and gold embossing powder and heat.
  • Attach the poinsettia to the gold flower layers using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the flower and attach it to the card base.
  • Finish the flower center by attaching pre made gold Nuvo Chrystal Drops using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the gold holly and gold flower petals under the poinsettia and attach using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this elegant gold embossed vellum poinsettia card.

I hope you don’t mind seeing a repeat of my earlier card with this gold embossed vellum poinsettia card.  Here is a Pinterest link with lots of gold embossed vellum poinsettia projects.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you take some time to get crafty today.
