How to Make the Perfect Paper Poinsettia

Updated: Jan 16

As you might know, I LOVE making paper flowers! That's how Modern Flower Creation started! I am super excited to show you guys how to make this super easy paper poinsettia!

Let's start with the materials:

1. Cricut Cardstock

2. Mini Glue Gun

3. Mini Glitter Glue Sticks

4. Cricut Machine

5. Scoring Tool

6. Poinsettia Template (PDF Template & SVG Template)

7. Silicone Mat

Let's get started with the assembly of the paper Poinsettia! You will need 2 large and 2 small templates to create the perfect poinsettia! However, you can also just use 2 large and 1 small poinsettia template.

1. You will need your Cricut Machine to do all the work now! Insert your Cricut Mat and let your Cricut cut out the templates needed to make the Poinsettia.

2. Unload your Cricut mat from your Cricut machine and start removing the paper from the mat.

3. Use a scoring tool to add score lines to each petal on the template. This will make it so the poinsettia has more of a realistic look. If you are using Cricut Design Space then you can add score lines there and have the Cricut score them for you.

4. Next, you will fold each petal in half using your fingers.
