Snowflake poinsettias

Happy snow day and snowflake poinsettias!

We just got our first snow of the year and it was a big one! In fact, on Friday, I set this little tree up on our deck.

The winter weather has actually been pretty mild here in Chi-beria for once, and I thought it would be easier that trying to do it with a little snow and cold outside.Ha! For once I had some good planning.

Saturday morning, I woke up to this and it snowed ALL.DAY.LONG. I think we  had a record for the first highest snow day in 120 years. Crazy!
How to make these beautiful snowflake poinsettias I recently was able to work with Cricut on a sponsored project and I wanted to share how I made the snowflake poinsettia’s. If you don’t have a Cricut, I might have a giveaway coming up later this week!

 If you don’t have a Cricut Explore Air
, you can cut out snowflakes by hand in sparkly paper for  similar look. I actually used their vinyl for t-shirts, that’s why it has a nice curled look.

After setting the snowflake pattern on my Cricut Explore Air, I cut out two sizes of  snowflakes.

I made sure there was an open hole in the center.

I added a piece of gold between them and then glued them together.

layer both gold and green leaves

I cut out leaves, one slightly smaller then the rest in their gold poster stock and then green vinyl and layered them to get  a highlighted edge look. The green vinyl has a slightly sticky back, so no glue was needed.

I glued them on the backside of the snowflake.

to hang them, I glued a pipe cleaner on the back so I could twist them onto the garland.

I love the bit of sparkle they have and I think these would be pretty as package toppers too.
