The Artisan Award Winners Holiday Gallery is now up over at Stampin' Up!'s Facebook page. You can see all of the incredible projects here. This is my project for the gallery. I started by creating a box with the Petal Cone Die and modifying it to create a take out box. Then I used the heel portion of the Holiday Stocking Die and the holly leaf from the Stocking Accents die along with the Spider Web embossing folder to create a gorgeous poinsettia.
Last month I taught some of my downline to make a similar poinsettia at one of our downline meetings. My friend, Nancy Brown, filmed the demonstration so that I could share it with you. For this project I placed the smaller flower on top of the larger one. Both flowers are pretty by themselves, but when you put the two together the results are stunning. The video is a little slow-paced because I was giving a demonstration, so I tried to edit it down. It is very detailed and you should be able to get the same results if you follow the instructions on the tutorial. You can purchase everything you need to create the box and flower at my online store, here. Also, scroll down for a list of supplies.
