2012 Heiloom ornament die Giant Poinsettia flowers

Pin It

Open in Mobile App Hi all, Christmas is just around the corner again! wow where has the year gone... Beth has booked her flights to Bali, she is doing Red frogs over there this year and is really excited.
Mad is well into her first term of year 12 and Ben is busy getting hands on with his Uni course... all full steam ahead for the kids :)  we have almost finished or front garden, just need to get the rocks now! looking great! Ill post some pics when its all finished. To the papercrafting.... I purchased the 2012 heirloom ornaments dies from spellbinders as I loved how they had a flower petal shape to them and wondered how some giant flowers would go..... so here is what i made with the two largest dies from the set, Giant Poinsettia flowers! these would be great Christmas decorations. Table centers, attached to a candle stands, door wreath etc.

I used red and green card stock, inks to match for sponging, gold coloured diamonds for the center, glue, a piercing tool and soft pad for shaping. The two largest dies were used to make this flower.

Really easy to make!!! so sit back and enjoy the video :)
Blessings to you

and a last thought
And I am sure that God who began the good work within you
will keep right on helping you grow into His grace
 until that task within you is finally finished
on that day when Jesus Christ returns.
Philippians 1:6
