‘Tis the season to begin thinking about Christmas… and that means lots of fun crafts to make! In today’s blog, we’ll be making quick, cute mini paper Poinsettias! I actually won a giveaway where I received these cute paper flowers. But, I wanted to do something Christmas-themed with them… so, that was the inspiration for the Poinsettias!

I will have all of the products linked below that I used, as well as an instructional video. Some of the items are optional. Leave your flower sweet and simple or use lots of bling to jazz it up… the choice is yours!

Supplies Used:

(Click product for link)

Paper Flowers     Copic Markers     Zig Glue Pen     Stickles

Glossy Accents     Spectrum Noir Brush Pen     1″ Circle Punch

The short video tutorial at the end of this blog entry will give you very easy step-by-step instructions. This craft is suitable for kids, beginners, or any level of crafter! Also, there are so many different ways you could use these cute mini Poinsettias. You could use them on cards, scrapbook pages, as paper clip toppers, or gifts. You could even use them as Christmas tree garland by hot gluing them onto a string, twine, or ribbon! Create them in a variety of shapes and colors… the possibilities are endless with a creative mind!
