Handmade Paper Christmas Poinsettia



Hi, Ann here today, with a paper poinsettia that you can make for your Holiday Decorations.  Here it is:



To begin make several sheets of handmade paper in the Arnold Grummer Paper Making Method using the Arno;ld Grummer Paper Making system.  To make these sheets I used recycled wrapping papers, some tinsel, and some envelopes.



To make the petals and centre of the flower a steel metal die was used to speed up the process.





Following the cutting of the flower parts, cut a big circle out of some cardboard.



Add some glue to the circle.  Begin laying the larger petals around the circle.  For the next layer add some more glue and repeat.  The centre is made by layering two different coloured enters over one another.  The stamens are represented with some clear dimensional glue and glass beads.




Finally to use this poinsettia as a tree ornament, glue to the back of a large clothes pin.

I hope that you enjoy recycling papers into beautiful new ornaments too.

Thank you for stopping by, and please take a look at the other projects I have over at my blog:  http://annmakes.blogspot.com or click here.
