christmas craft #5

talby wanted to show me how to make a poinsettia….her teacher taught her.
i took pictures of each step as she taught me.


1.  cut the corners of the red paper about 6 inches toward the center.

2. fold one side of each corner to the center.


3. put all the petals together with a brad.

4. cut leaves out of green paper.

5. open the brad and add in the leaves….re-close the brad.



6. TA – DA!!!  beautiful poinsettia in 3D.  

i love it.
think how cool it would be to make a bunch….in pink and white and red!   
so pretty.

danielle - love this!

Natasha - That’s so cool! When I was in school, we used to make something similar, but attached it to a long dowel or straw so it would be used as a windmill/pinwheel. I never realized how much they look like flowers too; thanks Talby!
