The poinsettia plant is such a gorgeous and timeless holiday icon. Channel some Christmas cheer and create a simple paper poinsettia plant for your home — just as lovely as the real thing and much longer lasting!
To create these paper poinsettias, we used Paper Papers text weight paper. This paper is especially wonderful for crafting paper flowers. Unique in its thinner composition than most cardstocks, it is ideal for these types of projects. It also has a subtle shimmering quality that gives it an extra lux feel. For these poinsettias, we used PaperPapers text weight metallic paper in Fairway, Mars, Red Satin, Jupiter, and Pure Gold. They have such an incredible selection of other colors as well… browse their selection today for even more paper crafting inspiration!
