Although wintertime is the off-season for Pixie Hollow's garden fairies, Rosetta still plays an important role at Christmastime tending the poinsettia plants. With their bright red leaves, which are actually called bracts, these easy-to-make paper poinsettias make a pretty present topper for someone special.
- Rosetta's Paper Poinsettia template
- Scrapbook paper or cardstock (red, green, and yellow)
- Glue dots
- Paper hole punch
1. Print the template and cut out the pieces.
2. Crease each of the bracts and the green leaves, as shown, to give them dimension.
3. Use a glue dot to stick the smallest trio of bracts to the middle sized set, positioning them so that the points are staggered, as shown. Then glue those two sets onto the largest set.
4. Next, glue the layered bracts atop the green leaves. Then, use the paper hole punch create a dozen or so small yellow circles and use a glue dot to stick them to the center of the poinsettia (see main photo).
