The poinsettia is arguably the most iconic flower of the holiday season. They bring light and joy wherever they are found. Create your own joy and spread the light of the Christmas season by making your own realistic sparkly foam poinsettias with the help of Delicata Inks.
Time: 1 hour + dry time
Die-cut or hand cut several flower petals and a few extra for leaves.
Color both sides of the petals using a sponge dauber and Ruby Red Delicata Ink; ink the leaves using Emerald Green Delicata ink.
Place a petal in the veining mold; heat with a heat tool for 2-3 seconds.
Immediately place the upper portion of the veining mold over the bottom; gently press and hold for 1-2 seconds.
Remove the petal from the mold. Repeat steps 3 – 5 as needed.
Once all petals and leaves have been molded, cut a flower base from cardstock and ink with Ruby Red Delicata ink.
Use a hot glue gun to adhere the leaves and petals to the cardstock base; overlap each petal just a bit.
Adhere the mid-size petals over the large petals.
Glue the smallest petals nearest the center of the flower.
Apply a bit of Electric Yellow Radiant Neon Amplify! to a plastic stamen; heat to activate Amplify! medium.
Insert stamen in the center hole of the cardstock base and secure with a bit of hot glue.
Try making a couple yourself or make with a group of friends! Enjoy!
