If you've read any of my recent posts lately you know that I have been having some serious mojo issues these past few days, especially when it comes to holiday projects... I'm just outta ideas!  So, to create this tag, I searched through papercraft magazines (many of them) and came across one that had a felt Poinsettia created using Papertrey Ink large and small leaf dies. (I'm so sorry that I don't remember which magazine or what designer though!).

I cut the leaves from Pure Poppy and Spring Moss felt and simply arranged them into a flower that resembled a Poinsettia. I used my glue gun to adhere them together onto a piece of felt I cut using my 1 3/4 circle punch. I then added pearls and glass beads for the center of the flower.  I attached the flower and printed paper to a tag I cut using my Cricut. Stamped the sentiment, inked the edges, added an eyelet and ribbon and I was done.  Whew! I do believe that this will be the LAST holiday project I create this season... and I feel RELIEF!  (I'm really not ba-humbugging the holidays...promise, just the thought of doing even one more holiday project!).  :-)

At any rate, I sincerely hope that you enjoyed the Papercraft Star Tags (and more) of Christmas Blog Hop! We are so glad you could join us during this special, but hectic time of year! Again, this is the last stop on the hop, and to be eligible for the Grand Prize, you must comment on all the stops... so if you missed any, just return to Papercraft Star and you'll find a list of all the blog stops along the way!

Happy Holidays to you and yours and thank you again for joining us for the Papercraft Star Tags of Christmas Blog Hop!

Cute tag! Love the felt poinsettia. You are inspiring me to get into my stash of felt that has set idle too long. I'm with you though, too late for more Holiday projects, Maybe a pretty spring flower
