Emma Lou has a great tutorial on shaping the poinsettias here.
To make the leaves diecut using the HCD1-765 Large Sparkling Poinsettia die out of green cardstock. I have used the 1 mm tip from the Deluxe Shaping kit and the hard mat to score lines to indicate veins. Sponge the edges with Bamboo Leaves ink and adhere to the top of the cracker.
To make the poinsettias stamp the image from the HPC-3680 Sparkling Poinsettia stamp with Versamark ink and emboss with gold embossing powder. Sponge the back with Love Letter ink and die cut. Sponge on the top of Poinsettias with Dries Clear glue and sprinkle Crystal Clear over it. I have used Heart of Gold prills in the centre of one flower and a gold gem on the other one. Diecut a snowflake from the HCD1-7108 Snow Kissed Flakes and Tag die, out of gold mirror card and cut in half. Place one gold snowflake half onto box over the leaves.
To finish the cracker die cut the label using the die from the HCD1-745 Luggage and Tags die, sponge the edges with Bamboo Leaves ink and adhere under the flower as shown. Tie red ribbons to each end.
