Today I am showing you how I made my poinsettias in an easy step by step tutorial... hers's my card which I used white foamiran and green stamens instead but techniques are the same , you can find these gorgeous products in Shawn's store you must check out the new stock of stamens and berries too! They are to die for 😋
Cut 2 of the larger template and 1 of the small template. You can use the Whimsy Stamps Poinsettia Die but at the moment in time I haven’t got them. If you have any poinsettia dies, you can do the same
Use a craft iron or normal iron and mine is on Cotton setting, each iron may varies so it’s best to test it first. The petal will curl, then I do a concertina fold and roll it between my fingers
Continue to do this to all the petals and they will look like this
Then I gently unfold the petal only on the wider part and use a ball tool on a sponge and press until it looks like this
Do this to all the petals like the picture below
Put a drop of hot glue to the centre - domed petals up - and off-set the next petals on top and the same to the smaller petals.
Use a 5mm ball tool or a wooden stick and press down on a sponge
Then I used a pokey tool to make a hold in the centre for the stamens
I used about 10 double-head stamens and pushed them through
I put hot glue on the back side of stamens to secure them and trimmed off the excess stalk. You can have your poinsettia as it is. I made mine shabby by adding some glitter paint but it’s optional, it’s my style 😊
Hope you like them and give it a try .
