Poinsettia Punch Art Tag

This poinsettia punch art tag was made using a 2 inch circle punch and the 1-3/4 inch circle punch! Similar to the post a few weeks ago where I made apples and leaves with the circle punch, this is made the same way. Click here to see that post. First punch your circle. Then insert the circle back into the punch from the top until you see a leaf or petal shape, then punch. (See picture below) Turn the circle around and punch another petal from the other side of the circle. Repeat until you have enough petals to form a full poinsettia. I used the 2 inch punch for the outside flower petals and the 1-3/4 inch punch for the inner petals. Repeat the process for the green leaves behind. Hint: If you have trouble inserting or positioning the circle into your punch, attach a thin strip of paper to hold onto it so you can insert it into your punch.

To make the veins in the petals, I used a spider web embossing folder and arranged the leaves on the folder before running through the Big Shot. You could use any embossing folder with some shape that resembles veins in the petals. For the green leaves, I just put the leaves on my score board and scored down the enter of each leaf. Use your bone folder to curl the petals and leaves a little bit for more dimension.  For the center of the poinsettia, I punched a yellow flower with the petite petals punch and added a rhinestone in the center. Each petal and leaf were inked around the edges with coordinating red or garden green inks.

The rest of the tag is made with banners cut from the Merry Moments DSP stack and red card stock, adding some white doilies behind. The sentiment is from the Lots of Joy stamp set. I added silver cording trim tied to the top of the bag.
