Christmas Poinsetta Flower Tutorial- By Glinda

It’s that time of the year when everywhere you look you see beautiful Christmas poinsettia flowers.  They seem to show up on every door step, painted on store windows, and as decorations in the malls.  Well, I think that they also make a great embellishment to use on cards or on a scrapbook layout.  So, today I want to share a very simple paper pieced poinsettia flower I made.

You will need 4 things:
1-    Leaf pattern cut 5 from green paper for leaves and 7 from red paper for petals.
2-    Circle pattern cut 6
3-    Black pen
4-    Glue
Directions:
After you have cut out leaves, petals, and circles take a black pen and draw lines inside and around edges of them.  Then fold the petals in half to give them dimension before you start t glue them together.   When you are ready to glue start with the green leaves then the petals and last the gold circles in the center. 
There you have it a beautiful paper pieced Christmas poinsettia flower to use on a special project.
I would love to see your projects using poinsettia flowers.  Just leave me a comment with a link to your picture.
Happy Scrappin' and Merry Christmas,
Glinda
