Poinsettia Flower Tutorial by Dawn Wheeler

Good morning girls Girls its Dawn here (All pink girl) and its my turn today to show you a little tutorial on how i make my poinsettia flowers ,
i am really nervous as this is my first ever tutorial and some of you know i am word challenged (so please stay with me lolxxx )
before we start here is the list of all the equipment that you will need to make this flower
1 Large retro flower punch (mine are from Hobby House)
1 Medium sized retro flower punch
small embossing tool
embossing mat
glue or sticky dotts
3 pearls
and a pair of scissors Next you need to punch out
2 large red flowers ,
2 large green flowers ,
and 1 med red flower


Then you need to emboss each flower from the centre outwards and then emboss little lines off of each centre line to create a vain like affect ,i have used a white pencil on the flower on the right to help you see the patteren you need to emboss and show up a bit more for you
Then you need to turn each flower over and pinch along the line from the centre of each of the petals to create dimetion

Then using your scissors you need to snip each pettal at an angel so to give more of a pointylook ,
do this with each flower ,plus also at this point you could also ink the edges of the petals if you wanted more of a vintage look

Next you need to add the pearls to the centre of the mediun flower ,by adding the pearls now will help when assembling the flower

Next glue the other two flowers togeather and add the top flower to assemble ,at this point you can also pinch the petals again if you need too

Then to make the leafs , you need to cut away some of the petals (like shown) as this will give more of a natural shape to your finished flower

Then like before when you made the flowers you need to emboss the leafs in the same way and not forgetting to pinch them down the centre and snipping in to each leaf

Then attach the leafs to the bottom of the flower for the finishing touch ,you can also add any glitter at this point too

And here we have the finished flower
hope you like my tutorial for today
