Although wintertime is the off-season for Pixie Hollow’s garden fairies, Rosetta still plays an important role at Christmastime tending the poinsettia plants. With their bright red leaves, which are actually called bracts, these easy-to-make paper poinsettias make a pretty present topper for someone special.
Time: 25 minutes
What You’ll Need
- Scrapbook paper or cardstock (red, green, and yellow)
- Glue dots
- Paper hole punch
How To Make It
- Print the template and cut out the pieces.
- Crease each of the bracts and the green leaves, as shown, to give them dimension.
- Use a glue dot to stick the smallest trio of bracts to the middle sized set, positioning them so that the points are staggered, as shown.
- Then glue those two sets onto the largest set.
- Next, glue the layered bracts atop the green leaves. Then, use the paper hole punch create a dozen or so small yellow circles and use a glue dot to stick them to the center of the poinsettia (see main photo).
Cutting should be done by an adult.
