Poinsettia SVG Cutz
Assembly Tutorial
with Leigh
On Dec 22nd I demonstrated how to cut out and assemble the fabulous Majestic Bow Make-a-Bow "Colourize It" SVG Cutz set, you can see my tutorial HERE, and today I'm demonstrating one of the ways you can cut and assemble the Poinsettia flowers included in the Poinsettia and Holly Botanicals and Bow Set "Colourize It" SVG Cutz from my new Poinsettia and Holly Christmas Collection.
I also made a "Poinsettia SVG Cutz Assembly Guide" video you can use as a quick reference while making your own Poinsettia flowers! 

The Poinsettia and Holly Botanicals and Bow "Colourize It" SVG Cutz set includes 2 styles of Poinsettia in 3 sizes with multiple layering options.  This photo guide shows all the elements included in the set as well as the assembly options and is included in the download when you add this wonderful SVG Cutz set to your collection.

 You can do so much with this set and all the options included will let you start cutting and creating immediately.  You can also resize the elements to suit your needs too!
Resizing Pro Tip
Center all the cut elements on your onscreen cut area and enlarge or reduce them all together as a group to ensure each part is resized correctly!
Now lets start making some Poinsettias!
Step 1 
Cut the fancy Poinsettia overlays from both styles in various sizes out of patterned cardstock using your electronic cutting machine, I'm using my Silhouette Cameo 4.

  Step 2
 Cut the matching base layers for each Poinsettia from red cardstock.

 Step 3
 Score a fold line down the center of each petal stopping before you reach the center of the flowers.
Step 4
Pinch and gently fold each petal to give the Poinsettia flowers structure and dimension.
Step 5
 Match up the fancy overlay flowers to their base flowers and adhere them together with a dab of glue in the center of each flower only.
Pro Tip
The Poinsettias aren't symmetrical so the easiest way to match the layers is by lining up the centers.

Pro Tip
For assembly I recommend using wet glue that's not super grabby to get some extra time to wiggle layers into place.
Step 6
 To make one 3D Poinsettia adhere two flowers on top of each other with the petals staggered. 
Play around and have fun mix and matching the flower sizes as well as the styles.  For the first Poinsettia I I combined flowers made from both styles in the same size.
For the second Poinsettia below I combined 2 same size flowers in the same style.
 For the third Poinsettia I combined 2 different flower sizes in the same style.
Step 8
Customize the Poinsettia centers by cutting them out of a variety of cardstocks.
Mine are cut from yellow pearlescent cardstock.
Step 9
Customize your Poinsettias further by embellishing the centers with glitters, 3D drops or jewels.
I embellished mine with yellow-gold self adhesive pearls.

 I hope you've enjoyed my two assembly tutorials this week and will have fun creating your own Poinsettias and Majestic Bows!  Join me during Christmas week and make a fabulous 12" Christmas Wreath using your Poinsettias and Majestic Bows!
