Cut the following number of petals

You will have 4 different shaped petals to cut out. To get started on your paper poinsettia tutorial cut the following number of petal pieces out. You will also need one 7 sided base piece for your center to mount all of your petals on.

  • 7 XL Petals (First layer)
  • 7 Large Petals (Second layer)
  • 7 Medium Petals (Third layer)
  • 7 Small Petals (Fourth layer)
  • 1 7-sided base

Step 1

After you have cut all your petals out, start by folding the petals in half lengthwise. Cut about a 2 inch slit down the middle and overlap slightly with glue.

Repeat with all of your petals.

Using your 7 sided base, glue an XL petal on each side of the heptagon. This helps your flowers come together more evenly.

Step 3

Keep going until you have completed your first layer of extra large petals.

Once you have completed your first layer, move to adding your 7 large petals into a second layer above. Be sure to add the large petals in between the bottom XL petals so that they are alternating as you build.

With your 3rd layer of petals, continue that same pattern of placing the petals between the ones below so that they are alternating.

Finally, add in the 4th layer of small petals. You should still be alternating the petals between each other as you build to create a natural look.

Step 7

To complete our flower, we’ll work on the center. I used a 3 inch halved foam ball spray painted with gold paint and sprinkled with gold glitter. You can also search for pre-made items like gold pom poms at your local craft store. Or even use some small glitter ornaments in the center like the finished example below!
