Just had to share this wonderful challenge from Splitcoaststampers.com with you today. The petals for this poinsettia are made with the small and large Stampin' Up! punches. Not my idea (too bad!) but a very clever idea - here's the link for the directions: Tag Punch Starburst. The petals are also embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Template. One more little point - rather than using the gluing method in the directs I ran all the cut tags through the xyrox before assembling.
Two of the layers are embossed with the Cuttlebug Embossing Templates - they are listed below. The "merry Christmas" is embossed with embossing powder.
This is an extremely easy technique if you have the right tools and oh so fun!!
