Poinsettia Christmas Card

This Christmas card is also a gift! The felt poinsettia is a pin that can be removed from the card and worn as a brooch to holiday parties or on Christmas day. Better yet, slide the safety pin (which is on the back of the flower) through the teeth of a bobby pin, and voila! You now have a hair pin.

Supplies & Tools:

  • Ribbon
  • Decorative cardstock
  • Poinsettia applique
  • Small safety pin
  • Scrap of green felt
  • Mini hot glue gun
  • Mini hot glue sticks
  • Scissors
  • Ruler

 Directions:

  1. Measure and cut a 6″ x 8″ piece of cardstock.
  2. Fold cardstock in half, forming a 6″ x 4″ card.
  3. Cut a piece of ribbon that is 3.5″ long. Set aside.
  4. Cut green felt in a circle that is about 0.75″ in diameter.
  5. Place circle inside the safety pin. (To prevent gluing the wrong side of pin, open the safety pin.)
  6. Hold the open side of pin between thumb and forefinger.
  7. On the other side, apply hot glue to the felt and pin.
  8. Immediately press onto the back of the flower.
  9. Set flower aside.
  10. Attach ribbon to the card. Apply a thin line of hot glue on the short edge of ribbon.
  11. Immediately press onto the card, aligning edge of ribbon with the top edge of card.
  12. Now pin the poinsettia applique to the ribbon.
  13. Pick up the bottom edge of ribbon. Apply a thin line of hot glue along the edge and press in place.
  14. Now your card is done.
