Try repeating that title fast 10 times! ;D
It's day 5 of DIY Christmas and I'm still feeling strong about it! I almost didn't have time to get around to crafting today, because I was so tired from Christmas shopping all day yesterday, and because we ate Chinese and rode out to the Rock Ranch to see the Christmas lights. But I did eventually kick myself into gear (around 9pm) and whipped up these snazzy little things. Ever since yesterday I've had poinsettias on my mind. Have you guy's seen Michael's at Christmas time?! HOLY GLITTERY POINSETTIA THINGS. THEY'RE EVERYWHERE. Soooooo, I happened to buy like 473981047-3 poinsettia related items yesterday. Prepare to be overloaded by their presence on the blog. You won't regret it, I promise. ♥♥♥
So this is a little trick for Christmas cards if you're lazy like me and forgot to send yours out a week ago. I'm kidding. But seriously, I didn't feel like making 15+ homemade Christmas cards, but I still wanted something special about them. How about a dressy envelope with a 3d poinsettia? OK, that works;).
Red puff paint
Green glitter glue
Red Glitter glue
Step 1: Grab an envelope you plan to use for your Christmas cards. Start drawing a vertical pointed oval on the envelope with a red sharpie.
Step 2. Repeat beneath the first shape.
Step 3. Draw two horizontal pointed ovals.
Step 4. Make half pointed ovals between each crease, kind of like making a multiple pointed star.
Step 5. Repeat on bottom half.
Step 6. Add even more half ovals until you've satisfied with the flower's shape. This is what we will trace with the puff paint.
Step 7. Draw leaves under the petals.
Step 8. Starting from the inside out, trace the petals with puff paint. Make sure the tip of the paint bottle never touches the envelope, or it will flat instead of raised when it dries.
Step 9. Trace petals all the way around the flower until all petals are covered. Let dry for atleast 30 minutes.
Step 10. Once the puff paint has dried, take the red glitter glue and fill in the petals.
Step 11. Now start filling in the leaves with green glitter glue.
Let dry for another 30 minutes and all done! You could even add swirls to yours or more smaller pointsettias like I did. Whatever you choose to do, ENJOY IT AND HAVE FUN! XOXOX
