30 Days of Handmade Gift Giving Blog Hop ~ Day 24 Project 2

This is my 2nd project for today, normally its jsut one project but with it being Thanksgiving I thought I'd add some extras for those who aren't going out on Black Friday and are staying home to be safe! :P

Here are some more of the Poinsettia Paper Wreaths I've made. I made some last year too and I just love making these, they are very easy, fun and festive!  I simply cut out the base of the wreath usually in green cardstock, so it looks like leaves. Then I cut out a ton of large and small poinsettia flowers, then emboss them using several different emboss folders. Since I use CTMH cardstock which has a white core I then sand the flowers to bring out the white, but not all of them some I just leave. Then i do either sand or ink the edges of the petals around the flower. Then I take a pen or pencil and round the tips of the petals. I use 3D glue dots to pop up the small flower on top of the large flower then use either silk or paper smaller flowers for the center and plop either a brad or rhinestone or a pearl in the center. Then I arrange the flowers on the base I already cut by using large glue dots sometimes I use two depending on how large I cut the flowers.
