Sparkling Poinsettias


Robin Merriman shared this beautiful Red Glimmer paper poinsettia and I thought it would make the perfect embellishment on the top of a gift box:

The petals are made with the Blossom Petals Builder punch.  I layered cardstock on the top and sides and used the Petals-a-Plenty Textured Impressions Embossing folder to give the top layer a little dimension.  Dazzling Details added just a smidgen of sparkle to the flowers – it really didn’t take that long!

Underneath the button and tab is a self-stick Velcro closure.  The box stays closed very nicely on its own, but I wanted to put the tab on and I didn’t want it flappin’ around.  Here’s a look from the top:

A few gold brads and a dusting of gold glitter (shhhh, don’t tell!!) finish off this pretty Christmas flower.
