Envelope punch board poinsettia!

Hello!  Is it gross out where you are?! It is so nasty here!  Cold and icy and sleeting and dark and dreary and just plain yuck-o!  Hubby and I have been hanging sheet rock all day long (perfect weather for that!), but I wanted to pop in for a few minutes and share a fun card with you!  My very clever sis-in-law shared a very cool trick with us the other night at our Christmas class.  She discovered that when you use the envelope punch board and punch a folded piece of card stock or paper that you wind up with a fun ornament shaped leftover piece of scrap (see below!).  So we all started playing around with the shape and we came up with a flower and then I thought it would make a pretty poinsettia!  What do you think?!

Cute, huh?  I just layered them in a circle and then did a second layer of them and topped it with a yellow center!

Here is one of the shapes by itself.  To get it just fold your piece of paper in half and use the punch part of your envelope punch board! Easy peasy and oh so cute!

Ok, well I am literally covered in dry wall dust so I am off to hop in the shower!  Have a nice day and I hope that you are able to avoid the yucky weather!

Well isn't that just brilliant?! Gotta love any design that uses scraps!

We've had nasty weather too. We had a snow day on Friday and will have one tomorrow too. It's been nice to have time to play though...the girls outside and me at the craft table!
