Poinsettias simply say Christmas! These paper blossoms are designed as a fringed flower to be quilled into shape. The stamen, petals, and leaves are designed as one strip of paper to allow for quick rolling / quilling. Color markers were used on white 28 lb paper in these examples, however they can be cut from colored paper and the three parts glued into one strip.
The pine needle wreath is cut from two pieces of 80 lb paper and overlapped, then fluffed into shape to give the poinsettias a festive base. Add a bow and your Christmas greeting card is set. A windowed box protects and displays your 3D masterpiece.
Use the cubed box for party favor treats at that special party. The lid is prepared with a hole for the enlarged poinsettia to be inserted. The large poinsettia is split in half to make it easier to cut on a sheet of 8.5"x11" paper. A gift tag is also included so you can have it all match your scrapbook paper.
Need to warn guests of spicy foods or ones that contain nuts? Use the toothpick tag topped with a poinsettia to have it match all your decor.
