My DT entry for this month is a red poinsettia. The file is available here and is very easy to cut with any machine that uses svg files.
While it is still a little early for Christmas themed items, our singing group needed something a little different for our Christmas entertainments over the next two months so I made this poinsettia into a brooch for each member of the group.
I cut the file at 4" wide and it is just under 4" in height. I used a variety of cardstock to get the colours I wanted. When I had cut the layers, I embossed the red layers using the swiss dots folder in my Cuttlebug to give some added texture. I then shaped the petals using a pair of scissors to curve them gently so they give a more 3D look.
I added Kindiglitz to the yellow inner piece to provide some added sparkle and glued the pieces together in the centre and added them to the leaf layer.
To finish the brooch off, I added a brooch clip to the back using hot glue. I think it works well as a decorative brooch for us all to wear!
